Austin: Putin will see stronger NATO on his flank

United States Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said on Friday that the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) will continue strengthening in eastern Europe. "What Mr. Putin did not want to see happen was a stronger NATO on his flank. That's what exactly he will see moving forward."

During a visit to Poland, he stated that "any Russian attack or further incursion into Ukraine would not only ignite conflict, it would also violate the bedrock principles of national sovereignty, territorial integrity and self-determination." His visit comes after the Department of Defense approved a sale of 250 battle tanks and related equipment worth around $6 billion.
