Stars and Stripes reports that “planned cuts to the U.S. military presence in Europe may be postponed because of concerns about Russian aggression, according to top defense officials.”  

“’Currently there are changes to overseas forces on the books,’ but ‘I have talked to leadership here about a function to re-address those decisions because those … decisions were clearly made before’ Russia sent its forces into Ukraine, the commander of U.S. European Command told reporters at the Pentagon on Tuesday.”  

“’I see this building now moving towards a review of those decisions,’ Gen. Philip Breedlove said.”
