The United States will transfer up to 800 troops from Italy to the Baltic States, as well as up to eight F-35 aircraft from Germany to the eastern flank of NATO. This was announced on Wednesday at a regular briefing for journalists by the press secretary of the U.S. Defense Department, John Kirby.

According to him, U.S. President Joe Biden on Tuesday instructed the Pentagon to redeploy part of the U.S. forces in Europe. “They include an operational group of an infantry battalion of about 800 people, which will be transferred from Italy to the Baltic region,” Kirby said. He added that eight F-35 aircraft and other aircraft will be transferred from Germany to the eastern flag of NATO.

The Pentagon said that at the moment the United States cannot say who is behind the new cyber-attacks on the websites of state agencies of Ukraine.
