Pentagon: the United States does not intend to increase the military contingent in Europe

20
The United States does not intend to increase its military potential in Europe and violate the fundamental Russia-NATO act, reports RIA News Pentagon spokesman Johnny Michael’s statement.




We continue to be committed to transparency,
he noted.

Earlier, the representative of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation Igor Konashenkov said that the 2-I armored brigade of the United States arrived in Poland and deployed along with armored vehicles, while there remained a technique 3 of the American brigade.

As part of Operation Atlantic Resolve (UAR), the United States rotates armored brigades every nine months,
Michael said, calling it "a demonstration of US commitment to collective security ... in the light of Russia's aggressive actions in the region."

According to him, the rotation is carried out "in full compliance with all treaties and international obligations, including the fundamental Russia-NATO act." He also said that the number of “American heavy ground-based military equipment stationed in Europe remains far below the established norms under the Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe (CFE Treaty)”.

Michael also noted that "the armored brigade leaving the position arrived in January and is currently at the stage of withdrawal from the deployment sites." Its population is about 3,5 thousand people.

According to him, "the advancing team is in the process of arriving at the position." We are talking about 3.3 thousand troops and 1,6 thousand pieces of equipment, including 85 tanks.

These personnel and equipment replace the outgoing unit, rather than being added to it,
stressed the representative of the Pentagon.

    We continue to be committed ...

    More committed than the United States in the world can not be found. And most importantly they believe in themselves.

    Well, if they say that they will not increase, then it is necessary to wait for a quick increase in the contingent in the Baltic States and Romania.

    Russia should not believe American officials whose names contain the letters: J, O, P, A, D, L, B ... In addition, when they make statements on Friday, the 13th, and sprinkle salt on the table. .. belay wassat

    Pentagon: the United States does not intend to increase the military contingent in Europe

    You’ll understand this Pentagon, the explanation of these actions may lie in the imminent possibility of the eruption of the Yellstone volcano, it is predicted that tens of millions of people will die as a result, and the entire mainland will decay into separate islands.
    Can the States, therefore, already evacuate the population?

    Too much to violate, and so violated everything that is possible. And transparency is yes ... Insolent to the extent that already, without hesitation, openly build up troops.

    How many months are the teachings, "American Determination", and each time the armored vehicles are replenished, but not reduced. At our exercises in Belarus there were a total of 13 you, these raised madmen have defended 100000 thousand. They themselves watched the teachings, as they themselves said, and left so much. There is nothing of these crazy to prove something. The truth does not exist there, they will put everything upside down. There is nothing to invite them to the exercises, let them look through the Baltic fence.

    And the troops all arrive in Europe and arrive! Probably a poltergeist? I remember we were promised not to go beyond the borders of Eastern Europe, did the poltergeist beguile it seems?
