UK commits 1,000 more troops to Estonia - Wallace

British Secretary of State for Defence Ben Wallace said the United Kingdom is prepared to station another 1,000 troops in Estonia if needed to protect the eastern borders of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

The move comes amid fears about the eastern flank of the alliance coming under an attack by Russia, sparked by Moscow launching its military operation in Ukraine.

The troops would join the existing battle group comprising 1,700 British soldiers.
