U.S. Pro-Ukrainian Troops Arrive in Poland

  • Written by 

Today, the first batch of United States Army troops landed in Poland.

The military agents were dispatched to the region, as the Ukrainian crisis continues to grow. The soldiers will hold trainings with Polish complements, and were requested by Poland. Currently, Russia and the U.S. are blaming one another, regarding the enlarging Ukrainian tensions.

United States Ambassador to Poland Stephen Mull commented, "Poland has been there for the United States, and today, as the transatlantic community confronts Russia's unacceptable aggression against Poland's neighbor, Ukraine, a sovereign and independent state, we have a solemn obligation in the framework of NATO to reassure Poland of our security guarantee". The U.S. troops plan to remain in the region until the end of 2014, at the very least.

Pentagon Spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby explained of the military trainings, "...a result of what's going on in Ukraine...What we're after here is persistent presence, a persistent rotational presence". However, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov claimed that the United States is controlling Ukrainian activity. Lavrov stated to his state-led RT news channel today: "Now that Joe Biden visited Kiev, this counterterrorist operation was declared in the active phase again...I don't have any reasons not to believe that the Americans are running the show in a very close way".
