NATO is making good progress in building up the battalions being deployed in eastern European allies badly rattled by a more assertive Russia, alliance head Jens Stoltenberg said Wednesday.Britain, Canada, Germany and the United States agreed in July to lead the battalions of some 1,000 troops each, with the other 24 NATO allies expected to provide different components – transport, communications and medical units.The secretary general, a former Norwegian premier, noted that the allies were also meeting commitments on a Romanian-led unit which will help bolster security in the Black Sea region in the same way as in the Baltics.He repeated that NATO was responding in a measured fashion to a Russian military build-up and increased activity around NATO's borders.
