The Associated Press reports that “the United States military says it’s completed $11.2 million in investments to upgrade an Estonian NATO army base as a part of a U.S. commitment to the alliance’s eastern flank, which is facing increasing tensions with Russia.”

“U.S. Maj. Gen. John Gronski said Thursday that the improvements to the Tapa army base symbolized the North Atlantic Treaty Organizations’s ‘strength and resolve’ in the Baltic region.”

“‘It’s all about readiness,’ Gronski told The Associated Press at the ceremony unveiling the works. ‘It’s range facilities, maintenance facilities, storage facilities. That’s how you build readiness to continue to deter aggression.'”
