NATO strengthening infrastructure near Russia-Belarus Union State borders — Shoigu
“Washington is deploying Aegis Ashore ballistic missile defense systems in Romania and Poland. The multi-mission capability of their launchers allows using not only interceptor missiles but also Tomahawk cruise missiles and advanced strike weapons that the Pentagon is developing,” Russia’s defense chief said

“NATO is building up its forward presence near the borders of the Russia-Belarus Union State, improving its military infrastructure, creating stockpiles of armaments, military hardware and materiel and practicing troop redeployment,” Russia’s defense chief said at a joint board meeting of the Defense Ministries of Russia and Belarus.

“Thus, an armored brigade of the US Army and four multinational battalion tactical groups have been redeployed to Poland and the Baltic states. The headquarters of NATO’s coalition divisions have been set up in Romania, Poland and Latvia. Efforts are underway to beef up the capacity of the port and airfield infrastructure,” Shoigu pointed out.

In Shoigu’s estimates, NATO’s response force strength has been actually doubled from 25,000 to 40,000 personnel.
