US adapting ’operational posture’ to deter Russian aggression

SIMI VALLEY: The United States is adapting its “operational posture” to counter Russian aggression, Defense Secretary Ashton Carter said Saturday.

“We are adapting our operational posture and contingency plans as we — on our own and with allies — work to deter Russia’s aggression, and to help reduce the vulnerability of allies and partners,” Carter told a defense forum at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in California.
