US President Joe Biden has announced that he wants to expand American troops into Europe. Russia wants to respond with “compensatory measures”.
Russia has threatened “compensatory measures” in the wake of the announced US military reinforcements in Europe. According to the Interfax agency, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on Wednesday that Moscow had last year offered talks about mutual security guarantees. He said that the United States had missed the opportunity. “What is happening now will certainly lead to compensatory measures on our part.”
Ryabkov said: “I think those who propose such a solution are under the illusion that they can scare Russia, somehow control it. They will not succeed.” Despite the fact that Russia invaded neighboring Ukraine more than four months ago, the Kremlin has repeatedly portrayed NATO and the United States as the main threats to Europe’s security. Against this background, Moscow has repeatedly emphasized that it wants to strengthen its western borders.
US President Joe Biden said in a meeting with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg on Wednesday that the US plans to further expand its military presence in Europe in the face of Russia’s aggression against Ukraine. According to Biden, a focus of US military reinforcements is the eastern side of NATO – such as Poland.
