The United States has once again threatened Russian President Vladimir Putin with deploying more than 150 tanks and armored vehicles in Europe.
Lieutenant-General Ben Hodges, commander of the US Army in Europe, said the Pentagon planned to deploy the tanks and vehicles by the end of 2015.
They could be placed in Poland, Romania or the Baltic states, the military commander told Reuters.
“By the end of… 2015, we will have gotten all the equipment for a heavy brigade, that means three battalions plus a reconnaissance squadron, the artillery headquarters, engineers, and it will stay in Europe,” Hodges said.
Last month, the Pentagon threatened Russia with redeploying nuclear cruise missiles to Europe, accusing Moscow of violating two arms control treaties.
