The Prime Minister announced at the weekend that Britain is considering a major military offer to NATO, protecting our allies by reinforcing our diplomatic efforts with a deterrence.
- Russia has placed over 100,000 troops, tanks, artillery and missiles near Ukraine’s border, undermining the foundations of European security.
- That is why Britain is reinforcing our diplomatic efforts with a deterrence. The Prime Minister is considering the biggest possible offer to NATO, which could see a doubling of troop numbers in Estonia, and will reiterate the need for Russia to step back and engage diplomatically this week as he visits Eastern Europe.
- Britain must step up to take the lead in defence of freedom and democracy through credible deterrence and diplomacy, and by joining forces with our allies, we will show that there can never be rewards for aggression.
