NATO to have over 300,000 troops at higher readiness- Stoltenberg

BRUSSELS, June 27 (Reuters) - NATO will massively boost the number of troops on high readiness to over 300,000, Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said on Monday, with allies set to adopt a new strategy describing Moscow as a direct threat four months into the Ukraine war.

"Russia has walked away from the partnership and the dialogue that NATO has tried to establish with Russia for many years," Stoltenberg said in Brussels ahead of a NATO summit later this week in Madrid.
