US Troops Staying in Baltics in 2015   11/24 06:25

   VILNIUS, Lithuania (AP) -- A top U.S. military commander in Europe says U.S. 
troops will remain in the three Baltic countries and Poland through next year 
or longer to "deter Russian aggression."

   In an interview published Monday, Lt. Gen. Ben Hodges, commander of the U.S. 
Army in Europe, told the Baltic News Service that Russia was trying to 
intimidate its neighbors with military exercises near their borders and air 
space.

   The U.S. has temporarily deployed hundreds of troops in NATO members 
Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland in the wake of the Russian intervention 
in Ukraine.

   Hodges, who was visiting Lithuania on Sunday, said U.S. forces had rotations 
planned through next year and would "be here for as long as necessary to assure 
all of our allies and to deter Russian aggression."
