Sands: the location of US bases in Poland will lead to counteractions from the Russian side
Press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov commented on the decision of Poland about placing in its territory of military bases of the United States.
“Depends on what it will be for the base. In General, when we capture the gradual expansion of the military structure of NATO towards our borders, close approximation of the military structures of NATO to our borders is, of course, in no way contributes to security and stability on the continent, on the contrary, these expansionist actions — they are, of course, inevitably lead to counteractions from the Russian side in order to balance the break every time, thus, the parity”, — quotes “RIA Novosti” Mr Peskov.
Earlier it was reported that Poland is ready to allocate up to $2 billion for the establishment of a permanent US military base in the country. The need for permanent US military presence in Poland was substantiated by the need to contain “growing threat from Russia,” since “after the Russian invasion of Georgia and Ukraine, the countries of Central and Eastern Europe are concerned that the next will be in the sights of Moscow.”
