NATO Plans Largest War Games Since Cold War; U.S. Launches Military Exercises with Armenia

HeadlineSep 12, 2023

NATO is planning its largest military exercise since the Cold War. The Financial Times reports the war games in Germany and Poland next February and March will involve more than 50 naval vessels, 40,000 military personnel and hundreds of simulated air combat missions. On Monday, Sweden’s government announced plans to boost military spending by nearly 30% ahead of its accession to NATO. Meanwhile, the Kremlin has expressed alarm after the Pentagon launched joint military exercises with Armenia’s armed forces in the former Soviet republic — a longtime regional partner of Russia.
