    German military equipment has reached Lithuania as part of a plan by NATO to boost the alliance’s presence in Eastern Europe, despite Russian objections. Fighting vehicles from the mechanized infantry battalion of the Federal German Defense Forces arrived at a train station in southern Lithuania. The deployment will boost NATO’s Enhanced Forward Presence Unit in the country. Berlin is also contributing some 450 troops alongside equipment. The complete unit in Lithuania will consist of over one-thousand troops. The move follows a 20-16 NATO agreement to deploy four multinational battalions to Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland. The Kremlin has strongly criticized the move, describing it as a threat to Russia’s national security.
