U.S. rotates troops to NATO battle group, equipment in Poland as Russia masses on Ukraine’s border


(Worthy News) – As Russia continues to threaten Ukraine with troops along the border, the U.S. military on Sunday sent fresh troops to a NATO battle group based in neighboring Poland made up of troops from Croatia, Romania and the United Kingdom.

U.S. officials are calling the mission “a pre-planned, normal rotation of forces” and said it was the 10th rotation of American troops in support of NATO’s Enhanced Foreign Presence. But the move is likely to annoy the Kremlin, which has made a broad pullback of U.S. and allied troops from Poland and other states on its borders one of its prime demands for resolving the conflict.

The U.S. contingent of the Enhanced Forward Presence Battlegroup-Poland will be the 1st Battalion, 185th Infantry Regiment. It is replacing the 3rd Battalion, 161st Infantry Regiment. Both battalions belong to the 81st Stryker Brigade Combat Team, made up of National Guard units located in Washington state, Oregon, and California, according to U.S. Army officials in Europe.
