The United States Is Preparing Pathways Within Europe To Move American Soldiers From Germany To Poland In The Case Of War With Russia

NATO is preparing routes within Europe to move American soldiers from Germany to Poland if there is a war with Russia, as we read in Kresy:

NATO is preparing “land corridors” to transfer American troops and armored equipment to the front line of a major land war in Europe with Russia, the British Daily Telegraph newspaper reports on Tuesday. One of them would lead through Germany to Poland.

According to the British daily, NATO is preparing plans to transfer American troops to the eastern flank in the event of a war with Russia. Medium writes that many “land corridors” are to be marked on the maps.

In the event of a war with Russia, American soldiers would be transferred to one of five countries – Norway, the Netherlands, Italy, Greece, Turkey, or to several of them. They would then be routed east along pre-planned logistic routes.

Current plans assume that in the event of a Russian invasion, American troops would be transferred to the port of Rotterdam and then transported by train through Germany to Poland. According to the newspaper, behind-the-scenes talks concern extending the corridors to other ports.

In turn, if the forces transferred from the Netherlands are hit by Russian long-range missiles or the destruction of northern European ports, the ports on the Apennine Peninsula would be used. Then, the support would be directed by land through Slovenia, Croatia to Hungary.

As we read, “there are similar plans to transport forces from Turkish and Greek ports through Bulgaria and Romania.”

This reminds me of the military Schengen agreement between Poland, Germany and the Netherlands, as we read in Euro News:

Poland continues to grapple with internal and external security challenges, and Russia’s behaviour remains the top concern.

Poland has joined the so-called ‘military Schengen’ agreement, a European initiative aimed at streamlining troop mobility among participating states.

The agreement, also signed by Germany and the Netherlands, is both a gesture of solidarity with Ukraine and a concrete step towards better European security, guaranteeing a swift aid corridor for Ukraine and facilitating future mobilisation on NATO’s eastern flank.

According to the Polish minister of defence, Wladyslaw Kosiniak-Kamysz, the conflict in Ukraine has underscored the importance of rapid troop mobilisation. Daphne Bergsma, the Dutch ambassador to Poland, stressed that military mobility is central to in addressing growing geopolitical challenges.
