Greece was nearly bankrupt saved an EU bailout, mostly financed by German banks. Yet the Greeks spend more on the military in 2015 than many EU nations. Not sure as a result of Turkey as much as personnel costs and domestic instability.

Poland has pledged to increase military spending to meet the NATO 2℅ threshold in 2016 as a result of Russian aggressiveness in the region.

Estonia, although has seen a sharp decline in military spending per GDP remained in 2015 above the NATO threshold.
