“We will agree to deploy by rotation four robust multinational battalions in the Baltic states and Poland,” Stoltenberg told journalists in Brussels ahead of the meeting of NATO defence ministers.

A battalion usually consists of 500-1,000 soldiers.

NATO says that additional capacities would be sent to Eastern Europe in response to Russia‘s aggressive actions in Ukraine and the Baltic Sea region.
