The United States and NATO countries continue to strengthen their military presence along the Western border of Russia disregarding all previously concluded treaties.
Sergey Lavrov, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, declared that the deployment of US division in Poland would be the direct violation of the NATO-Russia Founding Act.
Meeting Donald Trump in the Oval Office earlier in September, Polish President Andrzej Duda made a direct appeal to Trump for a permanent U.S. base in Poland offering up to 2 billion dollars in funding for such a base. Donald Trump said Poland’s request was under consideration.
Sergey Lavrov noted that NATO military exercises conducted in the Baltic States close to the Russian borders on a regular basis as well as the deployment of German, Canadian, British and French units in the region and the Polish initiative to station the US division on its territory were a flagrant violation of the NATO–Russian Founding Act.
This Act prohibits the deployment of substantial combat forces in the Eastern and Central European NATO countries on a permanent basis.
In other words, NATO authorities have once again demonstrated that the previous arrangements are not worth the paper they are printed on. And Russia can only lean on its reliable allies – the Army.
