RFE/RL: Germany's Foreign Minister Accuses NATO Of 'Warmongering'

"What we should avoid today is inflaming the situation by warmongering and stomping boots," Steinmeier told the German tabloid Bild Am Sonntag in an interview to be published on June 19.

He said it is a mistake to think "you can increase security in the alliance with symbolic parades of tanks near the eastern borders."

NATO announced on June 13 it would deploy new battalions to Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Poland to ease fears those countries have of Russian aggression amid Moscow's illegal annexation of Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula in 2014 and subsequent support for separatists in eastern Ukraine.
