US and Europe Deploying Tens of Thousands of Troops Around Russia



Despite reports of US tensions with Europe under President Donald Trump’s tenure, the NATO alliance formed between US and European nations remains strong.

A deployment of tens of thousands of US troops to Europe next month has been announced to conduct military exercises in a show of force against Russia. It is to be the largest US deployment of troops to Europe in 25 years.

Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Kevin Martin, President of Peace Action, and convener of the Korea Peace Network to discuss this move by the U.S. military.

Rising Up with Sonali is a radio and television show that brings progressive news coverage to a wide audience. Rising Up With Sonali was built on the foundation of Sonali Kolhatkar's earlier show, Uprising, which became the longest-running drive-time radio show on KPFK in Los Angeles hosted by a woman. RUS airs on Free Speech TV every weekday.
