The United States and Poland are in negotiations over the deployment of US heavy weaponry in eastern Europe as a response to Moscow’s expansionism in the region.
According to Poland’s defense ministry, America and Poland were discussing the permanent stationing of American heavy weapons including battle tanks in Poland and the region’s other countries.
The possible deployment would be part of NATO’s “Spearhead” strategy aimed at rapid deployment of forces to deter attempts by Moscow to destabilize nations of the former Soviet block, reports said.
