Over the weekend, tanks from the United States and 3,500 troops were given to Germany. The decision is said to protect the Eastern part of Europe in case Russia will attack it.
The dock area from Bremerhaven is full of American equipment, including tanks and Humvees.
Operation Atlantic Resolve is the official name. USA wants to reassure the European countries that they have its support in case Russia will ever decide to attack.
Everyone is worried about a possibility like this coming from Russia. In 2014, it invaded Crimea. Then, the Russian troops fought for Kremlin.
The worries about US have been caused by the bond of the next president of the states, Donald Trump, with Vladimir Putin. Governments are worried that the two powers will affiliate.
There are also reports that state a Russian implication in the US elections of 2016. Putin is thought to have interfered with the election.
This is the first time since the Cold War that American troops are rejoicing in Europe.
“We intend to reassure all those here in Europe that we are committed to peace and security, and to send a signal to anybody else who would differ with that, that that’s not gonna work,” declared Lt. General Timothy Ray, who is in charge of the European command of US.
Vladimir Putin has responded and said that it is unrealistic to believe that Russia will attack.
The equipment will leave for Poland next week and then for the Eastern Europe.
This is definitely stirring a lot of questions, as people have been talking about the possibility of a third World War for a long time.
