NATO member countries have approved a new interim quick-reaction military force to protect themselves from Russia.
The initial unit, to be up and running in early 2015, is designed to be supplanted the following year by a permanent force.
The foreign ministers of the 28 NATO member states also have approved maintaining measures through 2015 initiated to reassure NATO countries nearest Russia. Such measures include stepped-up air patrols over the Baltic Sea and rotating NATO military units in and out of countries like Poland and the Baltic republics.
