US Sends Troops to Europe as Message to Russia


Sending 600 U.S. troops to Poland and the Baltic states for bilateral infantry exercises is intended to send a message to allies and Russia alike, but it also goes beyond symbolism, the Pentagon press secretary said Tuesday.
“Any time you put troops on the ground and doing exercises, in this case for a month at a time, it’s more than symbology,” Navy Rear Adm. John Kirby told a briefing, when asked whether the move was “a purely symbolic step.”
“The kind of work that we’re going to be doing is real infantry training – and that’s not insignificant,” he said.
