Russia continues to keep about 100,000 soldiers near the Ukrainian border. Faced with refusal to withdraw them, US President Joe Biden decided to take action on the matter. About 3,000 American soldiers will go to European countries, in this case Poland, Germany and Romania.
Pentagon spokesman John Kirby stressed that these steps are only moral support to show that “they are committed to NATO.” This is another reason why they did not send troops to Ukraine, since Ukraine is not yet a NATO member.
Russia has sharply criticized the move. Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko commented on these “destructive steps that only increase military tensions and make it difficult to reach an agreement.” Some European leaders, such as French President Emmanuel Macron or German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, are considering traveling to Moscow to continue talks.
