The Times reports storing battle tanks, infantry fighting vehicles and other heavy weapons would be meant to show Putin and NATO allies, "that the United States would defend the alliance's members closest to the Russian frontier."
The military supplies would be in the Baltic States, Poland, Romania, Bulgaria and possibly Hungary, according to the Times' American and allied sources.
