According to the Russian Defense Ministry, the US presence in the Baltic States contradicts the Russia-NATO agreement.

The second US armored brigade arrived in Poland and has deployed together with armored vehicles; the third US brigade remains in Poland, said the Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov.

"Thus, contrary to all the statements of NATO and the United States about the 'insignificant' amount of troops being sent to Russia's borders, now it is not a brigade that has been deployed, but a mechanized division of the US Armed Forces, where in two hours, prepared personnel can be transferred from the nearest American base in Europe [Ramstein, Germany]," Konashenkov said.
