Ambassador Alexander Grushko said Thursday that ”NATO is building a new military security situation that we cannot ignore, that we should address using our own military instruments.” Twelve NATO countries are deploying a total of around 4,600 troops to Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland and all four battle groups are due to be up and running within two weeks.
