Moscow says increased US military presence in Poland worsens security situation in Europe, warns NATO trying to ‘distort reality’

The US increasing its military presence in Poland aggravates the situation near Russia’s western borders and facilitates the escalation of tensions, while claims from NATO that the expansion isn't significant aren't credible.

That's according to a statement posted on Monday by the Russian Foreign Ministry which dismisses the NATO argument “as an attempt to distort reality.”

“We would like to point out once again that increasing the US military presence in Poland does not solve any security issues, on the contrary, it aggravates the difficult situation near Russia’s western borders, facilitating an escalation of tensions and increasing the risk of inadvertent incidents,” spokeswoman Maria Zakharova wrote.

Zakharova added that NATO’s claims that the military expansion is not of a significant nature is taken by the Russian side “as an attempt to distort reality.”
