Germany is sending soldiers and military equipment to Latvia and Poland as a part of a NATO Response Force. With this symbolic act, the military alliance demonstrates to Russia its military “strength” that can be used at any moment, the Austrian Contra Magazin wrote.

German Bundeswehr sends soldiers “to the eastern NATO front,” the magazine wrote. Even if the deployment of several hundred German soldiers on the border with Russia is a symbolic move, it can be clearly viewed as a sign that the transatlantic military alliance seeks further expansion, the article said.

On August 15, 150 German soldiers from infantry battalion 292 were moved to Latvia along with armored vehicles for a period of three months. The official purpose of this move is “education and training,” the magazine reported.

In addition, the German Bundeswehr confirmed that the German mechanized infantry battalion is set to join the ranks of the Polish army. 700 soldiers and 44 armored personnel carriers are to be fully integrated into the Polish armed forces by 2021, the article said.
This means Eastern Europe will face an influx of about a thousand German soldiers, whose task is to permanently intimidate Russia, demonstrating the threat of an attack.
“Do the Germans really want this?” asked the Austrian journalist surprised. But for the time being his question remains a rhetorical one.
