Poland moving troops to eastern border

Poland will move thousands of troops, starting next year, toward its eastern borders in a historic realignment of a military structure built in the Cold War, the country's defense minister told The Associated Press on Monday.

At least three military bases in the east will see their populations increase from the current 30 percent of capacity to almost 90 percent by 2017, and that more military hardware will be moved to those bases as well.

It's a response to the conflict in Ukraine and constant threats to Lithuania. It is reported that NATO fighters have to scramble interceptors on a daily basis. Also, Czech secret service sees 'extremely high' number of Russian spies.
