by MYCHAEL SCHNELL, https://thehill.com/
NATO announced on Monday that it is deploying additional ships and fighter jets to Eastern Europe, a move that comes amid increased tensions between Russia and Ukraine and concerns that Moscow is planning a military incursion against Kyiv.
“NATO Allies are putting forces on standby and sending additional ships and fighter jets to NATO deployments in eastern Europe, reinforcing Allied deterrence and defence as Russia continues its military build-up in and around Ukraine,” the alliance said in a statement.
NATO did not identify how many ships and fighter jets it was deploying to Eastern Europe or specify where exactly the increased presence would be deployed.
