Pentagon: US Troops From Germany to Be Re-positioned Closer to Russia’s Borders


The United States plans to withdraw 12,000 military personnel from Germany and deploy them to other locations, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper told reporters on Wednesday.

“The current EUCOM [European Command] plan re-positions approximately 11,900 military personnel from Germany,” Esper said during a press conference at the Pentagon.

According to him, the US troops would begin leaving Germany in just a few weeks and would then be re-positioned to Belgium and Italy amid the Pentagon’s plans to deploy part of them closer to Russian borders.
