Vladimir Putin’s spokesman says one way Donald Trump could help build confidence with Russia after he becomes president would be to persuade NATO to slow down its expansion or withdraw its forces from Russia’s borders.
Dmitry Peskov said in an interview with The Associated Press that this “would lead to a kind of detente in Europe.”
But unfortunately, Russia now sees “NATO’s muscles … getting bigger and bigger and closer and closer to Russian borders,” he said Thursday.
At a NATO summit in July, the Western alliance said it is building up positions in Poland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania as tensions with Russia escalate. The U.S. is sending 1,000 troops to Poland next year.
Trump has praised Putin’s strong leadership and suggested that the U.S. could abandon its NATO commitments.
