MOSCOW, January 16. /TASS/. Washington actually initiates a new arms race in Europe, plans to deploy in the region of large-scale armed forces have a devastating potential.

This was stated by the official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova.

The numbers speak for themselves

“In recent years the Western media and among the bloggers actively propagated the thesis that the deployment of U.S. troops in Europe does not play any special role in military and is reduced to the transfer of several hundred U.S. military personnel on a rotational basis with a small number of weapons and military equipment in the framework of the allied solidarity, – noted the diplomat. – If you look at some the planned and implemented by the Americans military preparations in Europe, the figures tell a different story”.
