The United States will boost its military presence in Europe after Russia’s leader Vladimir Putin “shattered” peace on the continent, president Joe Biden said Wednesday at the start of a Nato summit in Madrid.

“We are going to send 2 additional F-35 squadrons to the UK and station additional air defense and other capabilities in Germany and in Italy,” Biden said during a meeting with Nato’s secretary-general Jens Stoltenberg just before Nato leaders began discussions. EFE
