Washington plans to carry out the largest redeployment of troops to the European continent over the past 25 years during the Defender 2020 military exercises, which are scheduled for next spring.
The maneuvers will be attended by about 37 thousand troops from 19 countries of NATO.
Politicians of the Left Party of Germany have already spoken out about this, saying that the Defender 2020 exercises are a “new planned provocation” against Russia and, in their opinion, this will lead to decisive (retaliatory) actions on the part of Moscow.
Indeed, the US by excessive militarization of Europe and intimidation by Russia only increase tension on the continent. At the same time, the US role in these processes is not a defender, but a provocateur.
