US puts thousands of troops on alert to deploy if needed by NATO


The Pentagon has put about 8,500 troops on high alert as tensions rise with Russia as it builds up its presence on the Ukrainian border. These troops could be deployed as part of the NATO Response Force.

The US is also watching Russian President Putin quite closely.

We respect Ukraine’s territorial integrity and sovereignty, and we hope that Russia will do the same and any aggression committed by it. Vladimir Putin Vice President Kamala Harris said.

Those consequences could include 8,500 American troops.

Russia has been putting pressure on the Ukrainian border. Brandon Jett is a Professor of History at the University of Florida Southwestern. What appears to be an invasion actually stems from the historical relationship between Moscow and the governments of the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union, and now present Russia and Ukraine, says Jett.

Jett describes this conflict as a power struggle. “You’ve got Vladimir Putin and Russia is trying to reassert control over Ukraine, or sorry, over Ukraine…” Mr. Jett said.

And these tensions can have significant effects if they are not addressed. “Because this is all about being part of the global police. We should not be comfortable allowing these military strongmen or anyone to encroach on sovereign territory and think they can get away with it,” Jett said.

“Because it just encourages other countries to act that way and will really destabilize this network of alliances and global economic networks,” says Jett.

President Bident tweeted about the tension just hours ago:
