Rasmussen: NATO to open new bases in Eastern Europe

NATO is to deploy its forces at new bases in eastern Europe, in response to the Ukraine crisis, and in an attempt to deter Vladimir Putin from causing further trouble, according to its secretary general. This stance, however, seems to contradict Germany’s position that the 1997 NATO-Russia Act, which prohibits such deployments, should remain valid.
