Biden Sending Additional Troops to Europe Amid Ukraine/Russia Border Concerns
Updated: Feb 3, 2022
President Biden has decided to send an additional 2,000 troops to Poland and Germany and an additional 1,000 troops based in Germany and Romania amid concerns over the Ukraine/Russia border situation. Last week, NATO outlined a "deterrence" plan with potential troop and ship deployments to the region.
Tension between Russia, the US and the its allies has escalated over the last few weeks as Russia has amassed an estimated 100,000 troops near the Ukraine border and many are concerned that Russia is planning to invade Ukraine. Russia denies that is has any plans to invade Ukraine and says that the accusations are a cover for NATO's own plans.
Diplomatic talks are at a standstill as Russia has demanded that Ukraine never be allowed to join NATO and that the deployment of alliance troops in Soviet bloc countries be restricted, both sticking points for NATO.
Last week, Russia warned that it would take "retaliatory measures" if the US and its allies continued to reject Russia's security demands.
On Tuesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the US and its allies have ignored the security demands Russia put forth regarding the Ukraine and NATO and that the Kremlin is still studying the US and NATO's response.
