US President is sending more troops to Europe amid deepening crisis, Russia-Ukraine tension


Russia Ukraine Conflict: US President Joe Biden is sending about 2,000 troops from Fort Bragg, North Carolina to Poland and Germany this week and about 1,000 Germany-based troops to Romania . A senior administration official said on Wednesday.

Let us tell you that Biden has said that he will not keep American troops in Ukraine to fight any Russian incursion, although the United States is supplying weapons to Ukraine for its defense.

America’s decision has come at a time when talks with Russia have been stalled due to Russia’s military activities on the borders of Ukraine. This underscores the growing fear across Europe that Russian President Vladimir Putin is ready to invade Ukraine.

Smaller NATO countries on the eastern side of the alliance worry they could be the next targets, although Russia has said it has no intention of starting a conflict and is ready to continue diplomatic efforts. But Russia has deployed an estimated 100,000 troops near Ukraine’s borders.

Biden recently said he intended to provide additional US forces to NATO allies in Eastern Europe as an assurance of US commitment as treaty allies.

The Pentagon has put about 8,500 US-based troops on high alert for a possible deployment to Europe as additional reassurance to allies, and officials have indicated the possibility that additional units could be put on high alert soon. The US already has 75,000 to 80,000 troops in Europe as permanently stationed forces and as part of regular rotation in places such as Poland.

Washington and Moscow have been at odds over Ukraine, with little sign of a diplomatic path. However, a leaked document published in a Spanish newspaper on Wednesday revealed that if Russia decides to withdraw from the Ukrainian border, the US will join forces with it (Russia) to reduce tensions over missile deployment in Europe. May be willing to compromise.

The El Pais newspaper published two documents that were written last week by the US and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) in response to Russia’s proposals for a new security deal in Europe. However, the US State Department declined to comment on this. NATO, in reference to the second document, said it never commented on the alleged leak.

At the same time, these messages largely reflect the statement made by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg to the media last week. He had told the stand of the military organization of 30 countries on the demands of Russia.

The US is willing to discuss with NATO partners a transparent mechanism to verify the absence of the Tomahawk cruise missile at Aegis ashore sites in Romania and Poland, the US document said in a confidential letter. Aegis is a defense system against ashore short or medium range missiles.

It said that this would be subject to the condition that Moscow offers equally transparent measures at the two missile launch centers “to be chosen by us in Russia”. At the same time, Russia had claimed in the past that America can attack its territory with Tomahawk medium-range missile.
