WASHINGTON (QHA) -

The US is going to expand its military presence in Eastern Europe due to the aggravated Russian aggression. The NATO member-countries will begin receiving continuous troop rotations of U.S.-based armored brigade combat teams, according to the Pentagon's website.

The armored brigade combat teams will be on nine-month rotations from the United States since the beginning of 2017. In addition, according to the BBC, more than 4 thousand US toops will be deployed in Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Romania, Bulgaria and Poland.

Earlier, NATO reported it will not give up additional security measures in Eastern Europe in exchange for Russian help in the fight against terrorism.
