Polish PM Tusk Wants Increased NATO Presence in Eastern Europe
NATO needs to have a larger presence in eastern Europe in light of the crisis in Ukraine, Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk said on Thursday, quoted by The New York Times.
Tusk is in the Slovak capital Bratislava, to attend the session titled "Visegrad Up: Finding Common Grounds in Times of Crisis" at the 2014 GLOBSEC Security Forum.
According to Tusk, the presence, meaning meaning infrastructure and specific units, was particularly necessary in countries who have a border with “an unstable region”, such as Bulgaria, the Baltic countries, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary and Romania.
"If there is no readiness for a greater NATO presence in bordering countries of the European Union, it will mean NATO solidarity is only declarative," Tusk said at a security conference in the Slovak capital.
The alliance's top military commander said earlier this month that NATO would have to consider permanently stationing troops in parts of eastern Europe as a result of the increased tension between Russia and Ukraine.

NATO Military have a code of conduct to follow regardless where they are serving they are also NOT ABOVE THE LAW OF THE COUNTRY THEY ARE IN AT ANY TIME . They are expected to show respect to everyone at all times on theses visits ,local police can arrest and hold them ,have a senor officer collect them after a court appearance and the imposed fines paid . Then it will be up an internal investigation to decide if the person remains in service or is dismissed .
If that is the case, I guess you will say "Soldiers are soldiers" the day they might rape your daughter or wife?
This disgusting NATO is cancer and should be sent back to America where they belong. I do not want America to be in Europe, neither Russia. But unfortunately, both regions are seeking influence over Europe and this is clearly shown in the last few months. And this, comes from my neutral opinion.
Is this what you want, Eastern Europe?
