Russia not ‘intimidated’ by US military buildup in Europe: Deputy minister

Russia said Wednesday it would not be intimidated by US military reinforcements in Europe as tensions spiral over Moscow’s military intervention in Ukraine.

“I think that those who propose such solutions are under the illusion that they will be able to intimidate Russia, somehow restrain it – they will not succeed,” Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov told reporters.

“The security of countries where additional contingents will appear will not be strengthened. The prospect of stabilization will be distant. Risks will increase,” he added.

He said Russia would respond.

“We have the capabilities and resources,” Ryabkov added, threatening retaliation. “Now what is happening will certainly lead to compensatory measures on our part.”

NATO leaders invited Finland and Sweden to join after Turkey dropped objections, as the alliance looked to revamp its defenses at a summit dominated by Moscow’s intervention in Ukraine.


  1. This is what the Putler lapdog said in December.

    “”The line pursued by the United States and NATO over recent years to aggressively escalate the security situation is absolutely unacceptable and extremely dangerous,” he told reporters.

    Ryabkov said Russia was not willing to put up with the current situation any longer, and urged Washington to come up with a constructive response fast”

    You got your answer, but your response is pretty feeble to say the least. In light of the struggle the orcs are having in Ukraine, I suggest you keep to your side of the fence. Crossing it will cause you a world of hurt.

    • And their army of trolls are still blaming the US for pulling Ukraine from her “neutral status” which forced putin to start his genocide campaign. They only understand death so it should be delivered to them.

        • Absolutely. That’s why the limping imp demands Ukraine be “demilitarized.” Well, in real language that means completely defenseless. How did that work out with Scotland in the 15th century?…..

    No one expected to hear anything else and everyone knows that they are burning up inside, most of all the little runt.

What is your opinion?
