The Kremlin has commented on the deployment of a permanent USA military base in Poland, which will cost the country $1.5-2 billion. It says the Defense Ministry has written to U.S. politicians and the U.S. Congress with details of the proposal. "In general, when we noticed the gradual expansion of NATO's military infrastructure towards our borders, the immediate approach of NATO's military structure to our borders does not in any way contribute to security and stability on the continent, on the contrary, these expansionist actions, of course, inevitably lead to counter-measures on the Russian side in order to balance the parity that breaks each time", Peskov told reporters on Monday.
The ministry's press office confirmed to The Associated Press that such a document has been forwarded but declined to give more details.
The Kremlin warned that the proposed USA base would pose a security risk to the region.
