The commander of the British Land Forces, Lieutenant-General, Ralph Fodis, said that his country plans to send several hundred military equipment to Germany for use in the event of a war with Russia.
The Times quoted a statement to the team that London, in light of the extensive reforms in the British army, intends to establish 3 new military bases in Germany, Kenya and Oman.
“I pay special attention to Germany, to which we will transport a large number of armored vehicles,” he said, adding that, in his opinion, this would be easy by transporting reinforcements through the Channel Strait.
He explained that the new units will include updated Challenger 3 tanks, Boxer armored carriers, Ajax combat vehicles, artillery weapons, mine-lifting vehicles and drones.
He continued that a brigade of more than 250 people was supposed to be deployed for use “in the event of a war with Russia”.
Western and Ukrainian media have recently been predicting the possibility of “Russian aggression”.
For its part, the Kremlin described these statements as a media campaign aimed at increasing tension, and some countries are trying to portray Russia as a side that threatens the process of settling the conflict in Donbass, eastern Ukraine.
