(Worthy News)-- U.S. and NATO partners are escalating their presence of military aircraft, people and ships in Europe for the next two weeks in military exercises that have taken on greater symbolic significance due to the continued Russian advances in East Ukraine, the Washington Examiner reported.

"This is the biggest exercise since I can remember," said Rear Adm. Juan Garat of the Royal Spanish Navy. "One of the biggest exercises ... that has been conducted in this region since a long time ago."

Garat, along with U.S. 6th Fleet commander Vice Adm. John Foggo and British Rear Adm. Tim Lowe, the deputy commander of NATO's naval strike forces, spoke to reporters from on board the amphibious warship USS San Antonio, which is in the Baltic Sea participating in the exercises. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/u.s.-nato-launch-mega-exercise-on-russias-doorstep/article/2565851" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
