It has become known that more than 300 US marines will arrive in Norway for "war against Russia.”
Although the US has had special equipment stationed in Norway and the country is a member of NATO, US troops are being deployed for the first time. This initiative appears to be an urgent one, since the deployment of troops is to be carried out in January 2017, i.e., in arctic frost conditions.
The US Marine Corps base will be located one thousand kilometers from the border with Russia. Although this is quite a long distance, the Norwegian government and the US do not hide the fact that the reason is related to Moscow’s activities in Syria and Ukraine.
