BRUSSELS, February 5. /TASS/. The so-called ‘spearhead group’ of NATO’s rapid-response forces will consist of a 5,000-strong brigade, the sea-based and air-based elements and special task troops, the Secretary General of the North-Atlantic pact, Jens Stoltenber said on Thursday in Brussels upon the end of a session of its defense ministers council.
He indicated that the group was destined to be able to deploy within eight hours.
NATO passed a decision to unfold six command centers in Eastern Europe for a rapid deployment of reinforcements. These centers will be located in the eastern Baltic nations of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, as well as in Poland, Bulgaria and Romania.
The alleged goal of the motion, according to Stoltenberg, is to defend an order based on the rules that existed in Europe for many decades.
