The United States has agreed to supply a Stryker mechanized infantry company to the Bulgarian battlegroup under NATO’s drive to strengthen the eastern flank after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Bulgarian Prime Minister Kirill Petkov said on Saturday.

“The US agreed to provide a Stryker company,” he told a news conference with US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin. “This is a strong sign to all our allies in NATO.”

Bulgaria is setting up a battle group of up to 1,000 troops under the operational command of the Supreme Allied Commander Europe. The battlegroup is also expected to house troops from other allied countries.
