Moscow Ready to Respond If US Stations Military Bases Near Russian Borders

TASS

Moscow is ready to respond if the US stations military bases near Russian borders, chairman of the Russian State Duma’s International Affairs Committee Leonid Slutsky told Rossiya-24 TV channel, TASS reports

"Let’s keep in mind that one way or another, some really talented people from Washington have had these ideas during the presidency of [Ukrainian President Pyotr] Poroshenko. However, this hasn’t been done. If you want my own opinion, then no, it is unlikely [that the US would station military bases in Ukraine]. However, attempts of this kind might take place," Slutsky said.

"In any case, Russia is ready to respond to such developments," he added. "Today, our armed forces are as capable as ever. So not a single hair on any Russian citizen’s head would be harmed," Slutsky concluded.
