UK to send troops to Poland amid concern about Russian buildup
Britain and Poland ‘stand side by side’ as concern mounts about possible Russian invasion of Ukraine
Britain has agreed to send a further 350 troops to Poland, in a move intended to demonstrate that the two countries stand together amid concerns that the Ukraine crisis could spill over into eastern Europe.
The deployment was agreed bilaterally – meaning it takes place outside Nato’s structures – and comes a few days after the US announced it would send in 1,700 paratroop reinforcements into Poland.
