NATO leaders to show resolve towards Russia despite Brexit

By Paul Taylor WARSAW (Reuters) – NATO leaders will display their resolve towards a resurgent Russia at a summit in Warsaw on Friday despite what many see as a weakening of the West due to Britain's vote to leave the European Union. U.S. President Barack Obama, attending his last summit of the Western defense alliance before he leaves office next January, will urge European allies to stand firm over Russia's annexation of Crimea and its support for Russian-speaking rebels in eastern Ukraine. The 28-nation alliance will formally agree to deploy four battalions with 3,000 to 4,000 troops in the Baltic states and eastern Poland on a rotating basis to reassure eastern NATO members of its readiness to defend them.
