US military strategy: USA station defence missiles in Poland
New weapon in Europe: US defence forces have on Monday in Poland brought a battery with defence missiles of the type Patriot into position. It will remain stationed there two years at changing bases and is considered as the so far most important deployment of US military equipment in Poland.
First position of the Patriot battery is Morag (Mohrungen) in the Woiwodschaft Ermland-Masuren close to the Russian enclave Kaliningrad (Königsberg).
US Patriots arrive in Poland
A contingent of US soldiers has arrived in northern Poland to train Polish military personnel in the use of a battery of Patriot missiles. The US troops will remain in Poland for a period of 24 months.
The surface-to-air missiles are in the country as part of a move by the US to protect Europe from attacks by rogue states, such as Iran.
The deployment in the town of Morag (Mohrungen), around 60 km from the Russian oblast of Kaliningrad (Königsberg), has already drawn its first protest.
Over the next two years, the Patriots and 100-150 US soldiers will be rotated in and out of Poland.
