In the US, called the «Last gift» of Trump to Putin




The decision to withdraw more than a third of US troops from Germany is perhaps the ”last gift“ from current US President Donald Trump to Russian leader Vladimir Putin. This opinion was expressed by analyst Nick Robertson in a text for CNN.





The expert believes that the gifts of the American head to the geopolitical opponents of the United States do not stop during his entire presidency. And he considers the decision to relocate the troops of the European command to be a particularly grave mistake.

As Robertson writes, it took Trump a couple of seconds to announce his decision, but “it may take years to fix the damage this will do to the military Alliance.”

Earlier, Trump questioned the need to protect Germany from Russia. According to him, this is strange, given that Berlin pays Moscow billions of dollars a year for energy. In addition, the US President pointed out that Germany is not in a hurry to spend enough budget funds on contributions to NATO.

On July 29, US Defense Secretary Mark Esper said that the Pentagon will withdraw from Germany about 11.9 thousand troops stationed there, and will also move the headquarters of the European command of the US armed forces to Belgium. Of the displaced military, about 5.6 thousand will go to other NATO countries, and another 6.4 thousand will return to the United States and will be in Europe on a rotating basis. They will serve including in the East, and in the Black sea region in order to contain Russia.
