UK troops likely for NATO nations near Ukraine

London, Jan 21 (UNI/Sputnik) London is considering the possibility of sending hundreds more troops to allied countries neighboring Ukraine as a 'deterrent' to Russia, thereby beefing up the UK's contribution to NATO's operations in the region, The Times reported on Friday, citing defence sources.
The alliance members have reportedly held high-level talks about bolstering their military presence in the Baltic States and Poland right after UK Foreign Minister Liz Truss warned Russian President Vladimir Putin to “step back from Ukraine before he makes a massive strategic mistake, as quoted by The Times.
Currently, UK leads a NATO battle group of 1,200 troops in Estonia, where it has tanks, armored vehicles, air defense systems, and intelligence assets, according to the media. Poland hosts 140 UK troops as part of NATO's mission too.
