Russia Ukraine war: NATO will increase the strength of its RRF eightfold to 300,000 troops

 NATO will increase the strength of its rapid reaction force nearly eightfold to 300,000 troops

As part of its reaction to a "age of strategic competition," NATO will nearly double the size of its quick reaction force to 300,000 soldiers, the secretary general of the military alliance announced on Monday.

There are currently about 40,000 soldiers in the NATO load applied (NRF), which can be quickly mobilised when necessary. Anita Anand, Canada's foreign minister, stated in late March that the country had up to 3,400 soldiers prepared to join the NATO Response Force, which consists of a mix of army, air force, and naval personnel.

The move, according to NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, is a part of the "largest overhaul of military cooperation and dissuasion since the Cold War," along with other measures such as the operation of forces to defend specific allies.

Together with the domestic defence forces, these troops will train, according to Stoltenberg. Additionally, they will become accustomed to the surroundings, resources, and our newly prepositioned equities so that they can react quickly and effectively to any emergency.

President Joe Biden of the United States and his NATO counter - parts decided in Feb to send thousands of soldiers, supported by air and naval endorse, to protect allies close to Russia and Ukraine in reaction to the Kremlin's intention to begin the war. This was the first time the force was being used in a defensive capacity when the 30-nation organisation made the decision to send portions of the NRF and components of a swiftly deployable strike force unit to the group's eastern flank.

At a press conference, Stoltenberg made the comments ahead of a Summit meeting later last week in Madrid, where the 30 allies are anticipated to also decide to increase their support for Ukraine in its conflict with Russia.

According to Stoltenberg, he anticipates allies to state unequivocally that they see Russia as "the most significant direct threat to our safety." He predicted that at the summit, allies would decide to bolster their battlegroups on NATO's eastern flanks.

When allies meet in Spain, according to Stoltenberg, they will decide to provide Ukraine with additional military assistance. NATO members are also expected to adopt a "strengthened holistic assistance package," which will include the delivery of encrypted communication and anti-drone devices.
