‘Poland has officially welcomed the US soldiers who will form the backbone of NATO’s multinational battalion in the country as part of the bloc’s enhanced strategy to contain Russia. President Duda said it is something Poles have “dreamt of for generations.”
The American contingent of 900 troops, who arrived in Poland in March, will serve side by side on a rotational basis with 150 British and 120 Romanians soldiers in Orzysz.
In the future, the battalion will be joined by the Croats who entered NATO in the sixth enlargement in 2009.’
