Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin has ordered the deployment of more than 10,000 troops to Europe to replace those currently stationed overseas, APA reports citing Washington Examiner.

The deployment of roughly 10,500 troops “in the coming months” will “replace previously deployed U.S. Army units serving in the European theater operation,” Pentagon spokesman John Kirby told reporters Friday.

It is said that these forces will not fight in Ukraine.

"These deployments are one-for-one unit replacements," Kirby explained, "which will leave our overall force posture in the region, approximately 100,000, unchanged."

“These are not permanent moves," he added. "These moves are designed to respond to the current security environment."
