Task Force Wolfpack, comprised mainly of 3d Squadron, 2d Cavalry Regiment, U.S. Army with elements from Field Artillery Squadron, 2CR, the Regimental Engineer Squadron, 2CR and the Balaklava Squadron, Light Dragoons Regiment, British Army, leave a rest stop in Germany Oct. 11, 2017 during their 1,100 km road march from Rose Barracks, Germany to Orzysz, Poland. The Troops are heading to Poland to be part of Battle Group Poland in support of NATO’s enhanced Forward Presence initiative.


Once in Poland, the Task Force will relieve 2d Squadron, 2CR from their responsibility and join the Polish 15th Mechanized Brigade, the higher headquarters for the battle group, and units from both Croatia and Romania to form the second iteration of the group.

“We will continue to expand on the great work started by our predecessors by integrating new capabilities and expanding our training events, from multi-national tactical maneuvers to live fire exercises,” said Lt. Col. Scott Cheney, 3rd Squadron commander. “With each passing iteration of the NATO Battle Group we increase our shared understanding of knowledge, systems, technical solutions and most importantly our ability to work together tactically.”

Russia accused the United States on Thursday of illegally building up its forces in Poland and the Baltic region, saying it had quietly deployed an entire armored division in breach of the main pact that governs Moscow’s relations with NATO.  It’s the latest of several Western moves seen as provocations by Russia, which has vowed a military response.


“So despite declarations from NATO and the U.S. about ‘the insignificant nature’ of troops concentrated along the Russian border a mechanised division, rather than a brigade, has been deployed,” ~ Major-General Igor Konashenkov

The U.S. announced Thursday the arrival of the 2nd Cavalry Regiment in a Polish NATO outpost located about 100 miles from Russia’s militarized enclave of Kaliningrad. The troops are part of Washington’s latest effort to bolster allied nation’s against what they perceive to be a military threat from neighboring Russia. Moscow, however, has accused the U.S. and its NATO allies of undermining Russia’s own security.

“This creates prerequisites that may eventually enable them to create a certain stronghold. We will surely not turn a blind eye on this. We will take retaliatory measures,” Shamanov said, according to the state-run Tass Russian news agency.

“Not just personnel, but combat equipment. For instance, the group of Iskanders, including that in Kaliningrad, may be increased,” he added.

During a meeting Monday in Bucharest, NATO announced the formation of a 10-nation force in Romania, near the strategic Black Sea where both NATO and Russia have contended for influence. Romanian President Klaus Iohannis emphasized that the purpose of the deployment was “peace, not war,” but Russia condemned the move as well as an “unacceptable and provocative” resolution adopted by the U.S.-led alliance censuring Russia for its actions in the Black Sea.

Since Russia annexed the Crimean Peninsula amid political unrest in neighboring Ukraine in 2014, however, NATO has significantly expanded its military presence near Russia, especially among the three Baltic states—Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania—and Poland. These four nations were designated by the U.S. last year to host NATO battle groups, but the multinational coalition has expanded its forces beyond these countries, drawing further Russian fury.
