Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov stated that Russia considers the deployment of U.S. tanks and heavy armored vehicles to Poland a threat to its interests and security, Interfax reported.
“We consider this move a threat to all of us. These actions pose a threat to our interests and security. Moreover, a third country is beefing up its military presence along our European borders,” Peskov said. He also noted that the United States is not even a European country. According to the Press Secretary, it is only normal that any country would negatively perceive the build-up of foreign military presence near its borders.
Washington says tanks have been deployed to Poland in order to deter Russian "aggression".
