NATO tripled military presence on Russia's borders in just 5 years - Moscow

NATO tripled military presence on Russia's borders in just 5 years - Moscow | 22 Dec 2017 | NATO significantly bolstered its military presence on Russia's Western border over the past five years, forcing Moscow to take retaliatory steps, Russia's Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu has said. Shoigu's remarks came during Friday's annual extended meeting of the Defense Ministry Board. "Since 2012, the strength of NATO military contingents deployed at Russia's western borders has grown three times. Four tactical groups of battalion level are a US armored brigade deployed in the Baltics and Poland, the staffs of international NATO divisions in Poland and Romania," Shoigu outlined. The number of engagement-ready troops has grown even more, from 10 to 40 thousand, the minister said.
