"Up to 300,000 Nato troops have been put on alert amid rising tensions between Russia and the Baltic states. Jens Stoltenberg, the secretary-general of Nato, said the alliance hoped to speed up the response time of thousands of its troops to allow it to react to a combat situation more effectively. In October, it was reported Nato was preparing to station 4,000 troops on the Russian border with the Baltic states in its biggest military build-up since the Cold War." (11/07/16)
