US NATO allies plan show of force for Russia

The units are part of NATO's deterrence and defense posture and are created to show the alliance's determination to unite in response to any aggression against its members, a U.S. Army Europe spokesman said in a statement.

"The long-standing U.S. Army Europe-led cooperative training exercise is created to enhance readiness and interoperability among allies and regional partners", the U.S. Army said.

IDF paratroopers will participate in the Swift Response exercise, which will be held in Germany, Poland, Lithuania and Latvia, with the participation of a paratroopers unit that will train with the 173rd Brigade of the European Command of the US Army.

"The significance of the training that will be gained from all of the units and countries involved can not be understated", Lieutenant Colonel Mark "Kidd" Garceau, the 140th Wing Saber Strike project officer, said in a Pentagon press release.

The allied forces are set to take part in a wide range of exercises, including air assault operations, as well as bridge and river crossing operations to support freedom of movement and convoy security, according to the U.S. Army in Europe.

Like Ukraine, all four countries share a border with Russian Federation.

"They (NATO battalions) will be specifically tested during Saber Strike, it demonstrates the alliance commitment to one another", US Brigadier General Richard Coffman told officials at Sunday ceremonies in the Lithuanian capital Vilnius launching the exercises.

It added that the US -led annual maneuvers will "demonstrate the alliance's determination and ability to act as one in response to any aggression". "This is what normal deterrence business looks like".
