NATO deploys more forces to Eastern Europe

NATO said on Monday its members, including Denmark, France, the Netherlands and Spain, are "putting forces on standby" and deploying more ships and jets to Eastern Europe amid concerns Russia will invade Ukraine.

"NATO will continue to take all necessary measures to protect and defend all Allies, including by reinforcing the eastern part of the Alliance. We will always respond to any deterioration of our security environment, including through strengthening our collective defense," NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg stated.

The move comes as the United States and the United Kingdom started withdrawing their embassy staff from Kiev, citing threats of Russian military action in Ukraine.
