Obama to Europe: NATO to oppose Russian aggression

TALLINN - Confronted by a Kremlin-backed military offensive in Ukraine, President Barack Obama and Western allies will approve plans

this week to position at least 4,000 troops and military equipment in Eastern Europe, bolstering NATO's security commitments to nervous member states near the Russian border.

 

Ahead of a high-stakes NATO summit that begins Thursday, Obama will also make a symbolic show of solidarity with Eastern Europe during meetings with Baltic leaders in Estonia. He arrived in the Estonian capital of Tallinn on Wednesday morning.

 

Russia's months-long conflict with Ukraine comes at a time when members of the NATO defense alliance have been cutting military spending and reassessing the organization's role after years of peace in Europe.
