The US troops will be stationed in Poland as part of Atlantic Resolve mission and will take part in the joint drills with European allies.

“Almost 1,000 of US troops are on our territory today. The first [batch of] equipment has also crossed the Polish border,” Misiewicz said, as quoted by the Polish Polsat TV channel.

According to Misiewicz, the ceremony to welcome the US troops will take place on January 14. The incoming tank brigade comprises some 4,000 service personnel, 87 tanks, 18 self-propelled Paladin howitzers, 144 Bradley fighting vehicles and hundreds of Humvees.

NATO has been building up its presence and defense capabilities in Eastern Europe, concentrating on the three the Baltic States and Poland, with each expected to receive additional battalions starting this year. In meantime, Russia has repeatedly warned that amassing troops and military equipment on or near its borders are provocative acts that can destabilize the region.

A man, who was being pursued by police officers, took refuge on Wilford Burgess’s roof, evading police for nearly five hours and creating a standoff. Crisis negotiators arrived on the scene, trying to coax the man to come down. After several hours where authorities were unable to convince the man to leave the roof, Burgess decided to take action, with the entire incident caught on film.

The incident began at 6:34 am local time when law enforcement officials received a call some someone who said they were being followed. Once deputies arrived at the scene, a man was spotted jumping from one roof to the next, coming to a stop on top of Burgess’s home.

Wrenn said she was woken up at about 7:00 am local time when deputies began shouting: “We know where you are. We can see you.”

After being on Burgess’ roof for about an hour or so, Burgess said he felt it was time to try taking matters into his own hands. He decided to bring out a ladder and climb up there himself. “He’d been up there too long,” Burgess said. “I figured … if they can’t get him off, I can.”

Burgess’ grandaughter, Ashley Wrenn, captured the whole scene on video. She said she isn’t surprised her elderly grandfather did what he did.
