US Military Gear Reaches Poland Ahead of Russian War Games
WARSAW, Poland — A shipment of U.S. military equipment has been unloaded at a Baltic Sea port in Poland as Russia prepares to conduct war games across the border in Belarus.
American troops were deployed to bases across Poland this year on a rotating basis as reassurance amid Russia's increased military activity.
Thousands of Russian and Belarusian troops are set to participate in the weeklong Zapad-2017 military exercises starting Thursday in Belarus.
Leaders in Poland, the Baltic states, Slovakia, Romania and Bulgaria are concerned Russia might not pull back all of its soldiers after the drills.
