Russia will see Poland as a threat if NATO facilities are deployed in that country. The spokesman for the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov said this to the Channel One reporters, as RBC reports.
"As a country ready to provide its territory for the military infrastructure of third countries or for an organization such as the North Atlantic Alliance, this poses a threat to us," Peskov said.
He noted that at the moment, Russia does not consider Poland a country of danger. However, "a consistent drift of NATO's military infrastructure" toward Russian borders is undesirable for Moscow. According to Peskov, this is forcing Russia to strengthen measures to guarantee security.
On June 19, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov called NATO's "provocative" actions in the Baltic states and Poland.
In March of this year, Polish Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz announced the creation of up to six new NATO military facilities for various purposes in the country.
In addition, in May, the United States announced its intention to redeploy part of its military contingent from Germany to Poland.
