US troops prepare Sabber Strike Military Drill in Estonia
 
United States (US) troops prepare to fire Stinger missiles from their Stryker armored fighting vehicle during a Saber Strike military drill in Rutja, Estonia, on March 10, 2022.
 
 
 Hundreds of troops from the U.S. 82nd Airborne Division have deployed in the forested mountains of eastern Poland, just a few kilometers from the Ukrainian border. That puts them in close proximity to recent Russian airstrikes on targets in western Ukraine.
The contingent is part of a wider deployment of some 5,000 U.S. troops sent to Poland in recent weeks and is in addition to the 4,000 American soldiers already in the country. 
 
 
NATO has said the deployments send a message to Moscow: the alliance will defend “every inch” of its territory.
However, there are growing concerns about an accidental engagement between the U.S. and Russia. Communication channels have been set up to avoid that scenario. US troops prepare Sabber Strike Military Drill in Estonia.
 
 
There are also fears that NATO troops in eastern Europe could be targeted in the event of escalation. Russia’s President Vladimir Putin last month raised the alert level of its nuclear forces, in response to what he described as NATO’s “aggressive statements.”
