MOSCOW (Reuters) - The Kremlin said on Thursday that the Russian military was closely tracking U.S. plans to beef up its forces in Poland and would ensure that any U.S. actions did not threaten Russia’s national security.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov was responding to plans unveiled by U.S. President Donald Trump the previous day to deploy 1,000 extra U.S. troops in Poland as well as new surveillance drones, a step sought by Warsaw to deter potential aggression from Russia.
