Lithuania places its rapid reaction force on high alert in response to Russia's mobilization, according to Defence Minister Arvydas Anušauskas.
The U.S. deploys 200 marines from the Marine Air Control Group 28, 10 F-A-18 Hornet fighter jets, and an unspecified number of C-130s to Lithuania as part of NATO's response to Russian military aggression in Eastern Europe.
Russian President Vladimir Putin urges the Armed Forces of Ukraine to "take power in your own hands" and overthrow the Ukrainian government, which he referred to as a "gang of drug addicts and neo-Nazis".
Germany deploys 130 troops and 60 armoured personnel carriers to Lithuania. Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda says that the German forces are authorized to defend the country from threats. More troops are expected to arrive later this week.
