Biden to move US troops to Europe 'in the near term'

As fears increase of a possible Russian invasion of Ukraine, United States President Joe Biden indicated that he wants to deploy a limited number of US troops to Eastern Europe "in the near term."

"I’ll be moving troops to eastern Europe in the NATO countries in the near term," Biden said and added that they will be "not too many."

The Pentagon has placed 8,500 US troops on "high alert" for possible deployment to Eastern Europe. Russia has arranged more than 100,000 troops at the Ukrainian border and as of late conducted military drills in Belarus.
