NATO Says Over 300,000 Troops Now On High Readiness

NATO has surpassed its goal of placing 300,000 troops on high-readiness, a significant move in response to the threat from Russia, a senior alliance official told AFP on Thursday. This development comes as part of NATO’s strategic overhaul following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in 2022.

After Moscow’s aggressive actions in Ukraine, NATO leaders committed to significantly boosting the number of forces ready for rapid deployment. The plan aimed to ensure commanders within the alliance could mobilize substantial troop numbers within 30 days. This move is considered a major shift in NATO’s approach, reflecting the alliance’s recognition of the heightened security risks in Europe and the need for rapid response capabilities.

“The offers on the table from allies comfortably exceed the 300,000 that we set,” the official said on condition of anonymity. “Those are forces which allies have said to us, ‘They are available to you as of now at that level of readiness’.

Those plans laid out for the first time since the end of the Cold War what each member of the US-led alliance would be expected to do in case of an invasion by Moscow.
