29.10.2015 13:58

Moscow has repeatedly warned about the inappropriateness and threat posed by an increase in the number of NATO troops positioned along Russia's western border, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Thursday.

On Wednesday, US media reported that NATO was considering expanding its military presence along its member-countries' shared borders with Russia.

"It is this advance of NATO and its military infrastructure toward our borders, this is not a new phenomenon, we've been talking about the undesirability and danger as regards consequences of this phenomenon for a long time," Peskov told reporters.

"It is this advance of NATO and its military infrastructure toward our borders, this is not a new phenomenon, we've been talking about the undesirability and danger as regards consequences of this phenomenon for a long time," Peskov told reporters.

One NATO plan envisages the deployment of a battalion of 1,000 soldiers to Poland and each Baltic country, namely Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing diplomatic and military sources.

Another option recommends deploying a single battalion to cover the entire region, according to the newspaper.

Both scenarios of a possible NATO military buildup along the bloc's eastern flank, circulating in the media, are viewed by the Kremlin as undermining regional and global security.
