Baluyevsky commented on the U.S. statement on withdrawal from Germany

Statement on the withdrawal of American troops from Germany, "propaganda hype", but even the withdrawal and relocation of American troops in Europe will not change the ratio of military forces in the region, said to RIA Novosti, the former chief of the General staff of the Russian Armed forces army General Yury Baluyevsky commenting on the words of the head of the Pentagon, Mark Esper.

Earlier, the head of Pentagon said that the US withdraw from Germany 11.9 thousand military, 6.4 thousand of them will come back. The current plan of the US European command is to reduce the number of military in Germany, with approximately 36 thousand to 24 thousand. 4500 troops armored troops return to the United States, and other entities will continue to be available on a rotational basis "in the East and in the Black sea area" to "strengthen deterrence" of Russia and to ensure the security of the allies on the South-Eastern flank. In the future the United States can deploy additional forces in Poland and the Baltic States.

"Statements about the withdrawal of American troops from Germany is a propaganda hype, which should not be given much importance. It's tactical aspects, no significant changes in the balance of military forces in Europe will not happen," - said Baluyevsky.

The General believes that the Americans in any case in one form or another will remain in the region where it is possible to influence the geopolitics and receive good money for their participation in "so-called democratic process."
