Alexander Neu, a member of the German Bundestag defense committee, reacted to a report about the strengthening of the US contingent in the country.
According to him, the decision to send additional US troops to Germany may push the Ukrainian authorities to combat operations in the Donbas. “The demonstrative expressions of solidarity on the part of the United States and NATO towards Kyiv are definitely irresponsible and are another wrong signal,” Noah said.
According to the representative of the Bundestag, the escalation along the demarcation line in the Donbas is extremely dangerous. “The nationalists and revanchists in Kiev are inspired, they may even arrange a military incident to enlist the military support of the United States,” he said.
Earlier, the head of the Pentagon, Lloyd Austin, at a meeting with his German counterpart in Berlin, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, said that the United States would send more troops to Germany. Washington intends to expand cooperation through intelligence and military channels and will send an additional 500 troops to Germany.
