Russia's Response to US Military Posts in Cyprus

By in

A spokeswoman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia said that if the United States opened new military posts and increased the number of vehicles on its territory in Cyprus, Russia would have to reciprocate.

At the moment, the Russian Foreign Ministry receives a lot of data on the location of Washington’s additional military facilities on the island. According to unofficial data, this is primarily due to the growing influence of the Russian Federation among Cypriots during the successful operation of the Russian Aerospace Force in Syria.

It is reported that earlier American experts conducted a number of inspections at military-strategic sites with the aim of creating new units of the US Armed Forces in future. It is also known that at the moment the authorities of the United States are actively conducting negotiations with the government of Cyprus in order to expand military-technical cooperation.
