German Christian-Democrat MEP Elmar Brok, an ally of Chancellor Merkel, told Die Welt that given the Ukraine conflict, "it is right to consider a permanent stationing of Nato soldiers in eastern Europe". Brok said a "credible deterrent" is needed if Putin "does not change course from his policy of aggression".
