It is noted that at present about 200 military personnel of the alliance from France, Belgium and the Netherlands are actively engaged in engineering work in Romanian Transylvania.

The material says that after the start of the Russian special operation in Ukraine, NATO countries firmly decided not to allow one of the poorest regions of Europe to be so unprotected.

According to Matthew Orr, Stratfor's security analyst, Moscow prioritizes Southeast Europe and wants to have a strong military presence there.

Orra noted that NATO must respond to this.

Earlier it became known that the United States decided to deploy the elite 101st Airborne Division to European countries to "protect NATO's eastern flank."

It is noted that about 2.4 thousand troops will be deployed on the territories of Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary and Slovakia to "protect the eastern flank of NATO" and "contain the opponents" of the alliance.
