Russia threatens troops deployment amidst US tensions

On Friday, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said that he could “neither confirm nor exclude” the possibility of Russia sending military assets to Latin America if the United States and its allies do not decrease their military activities on Russia’s doorstep. “It all depends on the action by our US counterparts,” Ryabkov said in an interview. He also cited Russian President Vladimir Putin’s warning that Moscow could take unspecified “military-technical measures” if Western powers fail to heed its demands.
