Russia to boost military presence in Crimea, response to NATO E. Europe expansion

Russia is set to ramp up its military presence in Crimea, the country’s envoy to the Alliance said justifying the move by NATO’s “stepping up activities” in Eastern Europe. The envoy also urged the US to pull out its nuclear weapons stationed in Europe.

“Naturally, we will increase our forces in Crimea because NATO countries have stepped up their activities… in the immediate vicinity of our borders,” said Russia’s envoy to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Aleksandr Grushko on Friday.
