Divisions are opening among NATO members about boosting military deployments in Eastern Europe amid disagreements about whether the Kremlin’s faltering battlefield effort means it cannot significantly threaten alliance territory, Report informs, citing Washington Post.

Other policymakers, including from France and Italy, are voicing skepticism that the shambolic Russian force will pose a threat to NATO territory anytime soon.
