خطة حلف شمال الأطلسي لتعزيز أوروبا الشرقية

June 20, 2022 - يدرس حلف شمال الأطلسي (الناتو) سبل تعزيز جناحه الشرقي بقوات تنتشر في غضون مهلة قصيرة لتنضم إلى ثماني مجموعات قتالية قائمة، وخيار زيادة حجم اللواء في مواجهة التهديدات.

The allies are considering adapting a new German model in their long-term defence planning amid tensions over the invasion of Ukraine. Germany’s plan involves identifying units that can be deployed to Lithuania at short notice and link up with German and allied troops already on the ground, as well as placing key equipment ahead of time, according to Bloomberg.

The approach would be an alternative to basing new troops more permanently in the most vulnerable member states. Lithuania is among Baltic nations that have made urgent requests for more troops, Bloomberg said.

NATO says it has placed over 40,000 troops under its direct command, mainly on the eastern flank.
