Amid what appears to be the beginnings of a NATO military build-up in Eastern Europe in “response” to Russia’s own troop placements near the Russia-Ukraine border, Moscow is continuing to urge the West to halt its “hysteria” – which itself is fueling the crisis.
It responded to NATO’s fresh albeit very limited deployments of jets and ships Monday with the following: “As for specific actions, we see statements by the North Atlantic Alliance about reinforcement, pulling forces and resources to the eastern flank. All this leads to the fact that tensions are growing,” according to Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov.
“This is not happening because of what we, Russia, are doing. This is all happening because of what NATO and the U.S. are doing and due to the information they are spreading.” Peskov denounced what he dubbed the “information hysteria” emanating from the US and West.
