Amid Western efforts to provoke Russia under the pretext of the Ukraine war, the United States is planning to send 10,500 new troops to Europe to replace troops stationed in Europe following the Ukraine war, most of them on the eastern flank of the military bloc. NATO deployed.
According to the Russian network RT, the deployment of more than 10,000 American troops will increase the number of US troops stationed in Europe to about 100,000. Pentagon spokesman John Kirby confirmed the deployment of 10,000 US troops in Europe at a news conference on Friday, saying "the security situation in Europe is changing due to the conflict in Ukraine."
These deployments become one-on-one replacements, leaving the overall position of our forces in the region intact, at about 100,000. Replacement units return to their main station after a proper transfer of responsibilities.
A Pentagon spokesman said:
Troop transfers are likely to continue throughout the summer, but the military will soon look at a permanent presence in Europe and assess whether it should maintain the level of troops stationed in Europe at current levels.
