Default Nato puts up to 300,000 troops on ‘high alert’ as tensions rise with Russia

https://uk.yahoo.com/news/nato-puts-...095711101.html

Rising tensions with Russia mean that up to 300,000 Nato troops will be put on ‘high alert’, said Nato’s secretary-general.

The move is a response to Russian weapons tests and aggression against neighbours, said Jens Stoltenberg, secretary-general of Nato.

The troops will come from nations across Nato, including the UK.

Mr Stoltenberg said, ‘We have seen Russia being much more active in many different ways.

‘We have seen a more assertive Russia implementing a substantial military build-up over many years – tripling defence spending since 2000 in real terms; developing new military capabilities; exercising their forces and using military force against neighbours.

‘We have also seen Russia using propaganda in Europe among Nato allies and that is exactly the reason why Nato is responding. We are responding with the biggest reinforcement of our collective defence since the end of the Cold War.’

Britain’s outgoing Nato representative Sir Adam Thompson said the number of troops being put on alert was likely to be 300,000.

The IDIOTS in NATO are trying to start a war with Russia before Donald Trump can take power and stop it. How about we all work together to fight ISIS?
Dont forget as Trump said MOST of those NATO nations dont even pay their fair share, Turkey for example, DEMANDS ALOT from NATO, but HARDLY gives back any support!
Denmark and the UK are the ones who do the most, France only when it wants to attack someone they hate.
