Russia warns for a crisis in Europe, if US relocated its nuclear arsenal to Poland
MOSCOW, (BM) – US nuclear arsenal could be relocated from Germany to Poland, the US ambassador to Warsaw, Georgette Mosbacher, said in her Twitter account learned BulgarianMilitary.com.
“If Germany wants to diminish nuclear capability and weaken NATO, perhaps Poland – which pays its fair share, understands the risks, and is on NATO’s eastern flank – could house the capabilities here” she wrote in her Twitter account
She made such a statement against the backdrop of ongoing political discussion in Germany about the feasibility of deploying nuclear weapons in the country.
The possible redeployment of US nuclear weapons from Germany to Poland will adversely affect security in Europe. So experts commented on the recent statements by the US ambassador to Warsaw, Georgette Mosbacher, who proposed placing American nuclear weapons in Poland in the event Germany refuses to be present in the country.
Mosbacher confirmed her position on the possible deployment of US strategic nuclear weapons in Poland on May 16 in an interview with Fakt. In her communication with reporters, she emphasized that the “Russian nuclear arsenal” is the main threat to Europe.
In response to Mosbacher’s remarks, Russian Senator Alexei Pushkov suggested that American and Polish politicians recall the history of the 1962 Caribbean crisis. Then the deployment of Soviet nuclear missiles in Cuba led to one of the most dangerous aggravation of relations between the USA and the USSR during the years of the Cold War.
“Most likely, they don’t know about him or forgot about him. Placing such weapons in Poland is the right way to bring things to the same crisis,” said Pushkov.
