The Associated Press reports that “with NATO officials calling Russia more unpredictable now than during the Cold War, alliance defense ministers on Thursday are expected to approve further measures to enhance the organization’s ability to deter and, if necessary, respond to military threats from Moscow, officials said.”  

“Adam Thomson, Britain’s permanent representative to NATO, predicted “an encouraging degree of alliance commitment” that will demonstrate ‘NATO is strengthening its military posture in response in particular to the challenge that Russia’s behavior represents.'”
