US President Joe Biden had announced in the past few hours that the United States would send troops to Eastern Europe in NATO countries in the short term. Biden responded to reporters after following up on a question about Ukraine. Sending a limited number of troops to Eastern Europe “in the short term” comes in the wake of growing concerns about a possible Russian invasion of Ukraine. “I will be sending troops to Eastern Europe to NATO countries in the short term. Not much,” said Biden, returning from a visit to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, during which he had the opportunity to visit the collapsed bridge a few hours before his arrival. The Pentagon has put 8,500 soldiers on alert for possible deployment in NATO countries in Eastern Europe.
