The Baltic states and Poland have been begging the US to speed up weapon deliveries and expand the presence of American troops in their countries, the Washington Post reported on Saturday.

According to the outlet, the Russian military operation in Ukraine has caused Poland, Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania to fear that “they will be next to come under attack.”

“HIMARS, Reapers, counter-battery radars: these are what we will need most in terms of military lethal power that is imminently needed to deter Russia,” Kusti Salm, the secretary general of the Estonian Defense Ministry, was quoted as saying. He was referring to the US’ High Mobility Artillery Rocket System, combat drones, and technology used to detect incoming fire. (RT)
