On Friday, NATO leaders agreed to send more forces to Eastern Europe and activate defense plans to respond to various emergencies and secure the borders of NATO member states.


NATO leaders said they began sending more troops to eastern Europe after Russia invaded Ukraine, saying Moscow had lied about its intentions.


The barrage of lies unleashed by the Russian government should not deceive anyone the 30 leaders added in a joint statement after a virtual summit chaired by Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg.


 We are now sending significant additional defensive forces to the eastern part of the alliance the statement continued, without giving further details.


NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg announced that the alliance has begun deploying elements of its response force with the aim of strengthening its defense capabilities and preparing to respond quickly to any development after Russia's invasion of its neighbor Ukraine at dawn Thursday.


 We are deploying for the first time a collective defensive response force to avoid any expansion (of the conflict) into the territory of the Alliance  Stoltenberg told reporters after a virtual summit held by the alliance.


He stressed that the alliance will send units of its force for a combat response and will continue to send weapons to Ukraine, including air defenses, noting that Russia is trying to overthrow the government in Kiev.


The White House said security measures in Eastern Europe were preventive, proportionate, and not intended to escalate.


On Friday, US President Joe Biden chaired an emergency meeting with NATO members, in light of mounting pressure on him from all sides to strengthen his response to the rapid incursion of Russian forces into Ukraine.


The White House said Biden met other NATO heads of state and government during an emergency virtual summit to discuss the security situation in and around Ukraine. 


Biden, who for weeks tried to lead a unified Western response to Russia's maneuvers, participated in this meeting from the heavily fortified  situation room  from which American presidents lead sensitive military operations.


The US president had promised to deal a severe blow to Russia's finances and economy and made its president, Vladimir Putin, a pariah  on the international scene.


On Friday, several NATO member states expressed their desire to go further in responding to Moscow, as the battles reached the outskirts of the Ukrainian capital, Kiev.


British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and the Baltic states said it was necessary to impose  additional sanctions  on Moscow, especially targeting  close circles  of Vladimir Putin.


Berlin also announced Brussels' intention to impose  severe sanctions  on the Russian President and his Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
