After months of increasing U.S. forces throughout Europe’s Eastern borders in an effort to curb Russian aggression in the region, a new operation was announced on Monday that will see a U.S. led battalion of more than 1,100 soldiers deployed to Poland specifically as a response force aimed at Russian antagonism.
“This is a mission, not a cycle of training events,” U.S. Army Lt. Colonel Steven Gventer, who heads the battlegroup, told a news conference. “The purpose is to deter aggression in the Baltics and in Poland … We are fully ready to be lethal.”
