Donald Trump’s administration is weighing sending up to 50,500 additional troops to Eastern Europe in an escalation of U.N. sanctions aimed at curbing Moscow’s annexation of Crimea and backing separatists in eastern Ukraine.
The move would be the first of a string of U-turns for Trump since taking office, with officials saying the move is aimed at reassuring allies in the Baltic states of NATO members who were uneasy about Russia’s role in the conflict.
The Trump administration has also said it will pull back from a deal to send troops to Poland and other European nations as part of a plan to address Russia’s aggression in Ukraine.
But while Trump has expressed confidence that Russia will not attack NATO member Poland, a U.K. security official told The Associated Press that the U.A.E. was not on the same page as Moscow.
“We don’t know what the U.-K.
position is on Russia,” the official said.
“They’re trying to get us to think we’re on the other side of the fence.
It’s all about us, that’s what they’re trying.”
Russia and the U-S.

Trump on Monday tweeted that NATO was “obsolete” and said Russia had been “totally ignored.”
Russia’s foreign ministry on Tuesday rejected any suggestion that its actions in Ukraine would affect U.L.N.-mediated peace talks with Ukraine, which are due to resume later this month.”NATO is obsolete, it is a non-legitimate military alliance, it doesn’t represent the interests of any country,” ministry spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in a statement.
Peskov also accused the U., U. K. and NATO of not doing enough to prevent the spread of Ebola.
