NATO country leaders meeting in Poland's capital for a 8-9 July summit decided to deploy four multinational, rotating battalions to Poland and three Baltic countries, which all fear potential Russian aggression after Moscow’s annexation of Crimea in 2014.
More than two months after the Summit, Lt. Gen. Ben Hodges, the commander of the US Army in Europe, came to Warsaw to discuss executing the decisions taken in July.
In an exclusive interview with Radio Poland's Danuta Isler Hodges also spoke about NATO’s enhanced presence in the region.
