NATO set to increase its high-readiness forces to over 300,000 in massive military buildup

45% Center coverage: 88 sources
NATO will significantly increase the number of forces on high alert to over 300,000 from 40,000. NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg also confirmed that allies will expand troop deployments in NATO countries that sit closest to Russia. NATO will also change its language on Russia that in the alliance's last strategy from 2010 was still described as a strategic partner. "I expect that allies will state clearly that Russia poses a direct threat to our security," Stoltenberg said. The decisions will be set out at a landmark summit of the 30-member NATO alliance this week.See the Story
