US President Barack Obama announced on Tuesday that the United States plans to boost its military presence in Europe in response to growing tensions between Russia and its European neighbors.

Standing next to Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski, Obama said Washington would rotate more troops into the region and called on Congress to provide up to $1 billion to support the effort.

"Under this effort, and with the support of Congress, the United States will preposition more equipment in Europe," Obama said at Warsaw's Belweder Palace.
