TALLINN, Estonia- President Barack Obama has arrived in Estonia to make a symbolic show of solidarity with Eastern Europe in the face of a Russian-backed military offensive in Ukraine.
Obama was to meet with Baltic leaders Wednesday to offer reassurances to NATO member states near the Russian border.
The visit comes ahead of a high-stakes NATO summit that begins Thursday in Wales. Obama and Western allies at the summit will approve plans to position at least 4,000 troops and military equipment in Eastern Europe.
Ukraine is not a NATO member. But members of the alliance in Eastern and Central Europe fear being targeted by Russia.
