>> Warsaw getting set to host a NATO summit with Russian deterrence at the top of the agenda. In the shadow of the Brexit vote, Alliance leaders will meet in Poland on Friday, hoping to come up with ways to discourage an emboldened Moscow, with Washington taking the role of Europe's protector.
Reuters Robin Emmott in Brussels explains the concerns.>> NATO insists that we're not in a new Cold War. But with Russia's buildup in Kaliningrad, the enclave between Poland and the Baltics, there's a real concern that Russia might try something, not clear what, in the Baltics or annex a part of Poland.
>> Some countries want a large permanent NATO presence to put Russia off>> The Alliance is trying to have a more nuanced and light-footed presence that won't provoke Moscow but still send a strong message that it's ready to defend its territory.>> After the British referendum to leave the EU, there's huge uncertainty in the West about what it means on so many levels and obviously, for the West's security, it's a big issue.
People at NATO say, actually, nothing changes. But at the same time, I've been told that the summit in Warsaw will be an opportunity for Britain and for all the allies to, if you like, give a massive show of unity that the West security pillars of the European Union and NATO still stand tall and are in no way weakened by Brexit.
>> Russia, meanwhile, says it's NATO, not Moscow that is increasing the risks of a broader conflict in Europe. It sights the U.S. missile defense shield in Romania as a great danger. NATO insists the shield is to protect member countries from so called rogue states like Iran.
