The units will also facilitate the deployment of NATO forces if required, while helping sustain “multinational NATO presence” on the territories of the alliance’s eastern states.

Over the last few months, NATO has boosted its military presence in the Baltics in connection with the crisis in eastern Ukraine. The alliance said the move was necessary to ensure its members' security.

Moscow has repeatedly expressed its concern about increased NATO military activities close to Russian borders and denied its involvement in Ukraine’s internal affairs.
