NATO is set to launch its largest military exercises in decades, involving around 90,000 personnel in wargames aimed at demonstrating the alliance’s ability to defend its territory up to the border with Russia.

The exercises, called Steadfast Defender 24, will simulate an emerging conflict scenario with a near-peer adversary and involve transatlantic movement of forces from North America.

The goal is to deter Russia from targeting a NATO member country, with a focus on reinforcing the Euro-Atlantic area.

The exercises “will show that NATO can conduct and sustain complex multi-domain operations over several months, across thousands of kilometers (miles), from the High North to Central and Eastern Europe, and in any condition,” NATO stated.

“The alliance will demonstrate its ability to reinforce the Euro-Atlantic area via transatlantic movement of forces from North America,” U.S. General Christopher Cavoli said.

He noted that it will show “our unity, our strength, and our determination to protect each other.”

It´s “a record number of troops that we can bring to bear and have an exercise within that size, across the alliance, across the ocean from the U.S. to Europe,” Admiral Rob Bauer said.

Numerous NATO member countries, including the UK and Sweden, will participate in the exercises.
