NATO military drill

NATO members and partners are holding their largest joint exercise in Poland since the Cold War, at a tense time for relations between Central and Eastern European nations and Russia. Moscow has called the move “unjustified”, insisting that the presence of NATO troops close to its borders is a threat to its security. What does NATO gain from the exercise? Some analysts say the military drill is a way of reassuring Eastern European nations that NATO is serious about security. But will it be enough to build confidence among NATO’s newly joined allies? And are Russia’s criticisms warranted? Join us for a discussion with Jorge Benitez, Director of NATO-Source and Senior Fellow in the Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security at the Atlantic Council, in Washington DC; in Moscow, Pavel Felgenhauer, a Russian defense analyst; and in Kiev, Michal Baranowski, Director of the German Marshall Fund’s Warsaw Office.
