It's at least twice as more expensive and from the looks of it that are even expecting it to export it all across Europe. I suspect that's pushing it a bit to far said:"It's not about Russia," added Frank Rose, the assistant secretary of state for arms control verification and compliance, who attended the Romanian ceremony. Rose says the alliance has "been clear for over 20 years that U.S. and NATO missile defense are not directed against Russia, nor do they have the technical capability to undermine Russia's strategic deterrence."
"During the NATO summit in Warsaw in July 2016, the allies agreed to deploy four multinational battalions to Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland to counter the alleged threat of Russian aggression following the events in Ukraine."
However, as reported by Sputnik earlier this month, despite all the efforts, the number of Poles who view Russian foreign policy as a threat decreases by half. It is still high, currently at 40%, but the downward movement when the anti-Russian propaganda has not decreased in its efforts is really interesting.
The number of Poles who view the so-called Russian threat as a potential danger for Poland has decreased by half to 40 percent, a poll showed on Thursday.
WARSAW (Sputnik) – Three years ago the poll, conducted by the IBRiS institution for the Rzeczpospolita newspaper amid crisis in Ukraine and Crimea's reunification with Russia, showed that 83 percent of Polish citizens viewed Russia's policy as a threat.
Islamist terrorism is viewed as threat to Poland by 20 percent of respondents, while 11 percent put Germany's domination in Europe as their primary concern among the list of threats, the poll new added.
The poll was conducted on August 11-12, but the newspaper did not specify the number of respondents.
In 2014, a military conflict erupted in southeastern Ukraine amid the local population's disagreement with the new government in Kiev, which came to power as a result of what they believed was a coup. The conflict has also caused the Crimean population to decide to reunite with Russia. The media and politicians in the West have accused Russia of meddling in the crisis and viewed the reunification as an annexation.
During the NATO summit in Warsaw in July 2016, the allies agreed to deploy four multinational battalions to Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland to counter the alleged threat of Russian aggression following the events in Ukraine.
Moscow has repeatedly denied the West's substantiated accusations, and warned against boosting military presence near Russian borders.
