“Britain in SHOWDOWN with Putin: 500 Brit troops shipped to Russian border THIS WEEK”
British troops began a long-term deployment to Estonia on Saturday as Germany’s intelligence chief warned Russia had doubled its military presence on its Western border.
An advanced contingent of 120 British soldiers landed at Estonia’s Amari airbase late on Friday night as part of a new Nato deployment designed to deter Russia from attempting a repeat of its invasions of Crimea and Eastern Ukraine in the Baltic.
Eight hundred British troops with Challenger 2 tanks, AS90 self-propelled guns, and Warrior armoured vehicles, will be based in the town of Tapa, 80 miles from the Russian border, from next month.
“The best way to reassure our allies in NATO and to deter any Russia aggression is for NATO to stand up”
British troops are also expected to head to Poland and Romania within weeks.
NATO forces have also been deployed from France, the Netherlands, Spain and Estonia.
Putin’s annexation of Crimea and alleged election hacking has driven NATO to ramp up military power along the frontier with Russia.
Eastern European nations fear Putin is trying to establish the Soviet Union 2.0.
