US Nato general fears rapid Russian troop deployments
The commander of US troops in Europe says Nato cannot rapidly deploy large forces to Eastern Europe in the way that Russia can.
Lt-Gen Ben Hodges was speaking to the BBC's HARDtalk programme during large Nato exercises in north-western Poland.
"The Russians are able to move huge formations and lots of equipment a long distance very fast," he said.
Nato needed to have that speed too, he said.
