Documentation for claim

Period/date: 1. February 2017

Debunk claim:

Tasteless parallels comparing today’s democratic Germany to Adolf Hitler’s Reich have no basis in reality. // The deployment of multinational troops in Baltic states and Poland was approved in July 2016 at the NATO summit in Warsaw. The expected size of 4000 soldiers is designed to provide security guarantees and bolster deterrence on the eastern flank.
