RUSSIA is preparing to send thousands of troops into Europe, with the Kremlin forced to deny a plot to invade Poland.

Russia and Belarus will hold a huge joint military exercise next month, officially involving almost 13,000 soldiers.

The Kremlin revealed today almost 700 “pieces of military hardware” will be used in the Zapad 2017 war games, which begin on September 14.

The week-long operation will take place in Belarus, sparking concerns in neighbouring Poland, Lithuania and Ukraine of a possible invasion.

The Kremlin today dismissed these claims and said the drills would be purely defensive in nature. It described invasion claims as “false allegations”.

Russian Deputy Defence Minister Alexander Fomin said the drills would be in line with international rules – however observers have expressed concerns.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said the alliance will closely watch the exercises and has called for them to be held in an open and legal manner.

It has also been noted how the total of troops involved falls just short of the 13,000 threshold at which independent observers must be invited.

In reality, experts believe at least 60,000 and as many as 100,000 troops will actually take part in the drill.

The US has sent 600 soldiers to Europe as a precaution.

Lt. Gen. Frederick B. Hodges said: “Look, we’ll be ready; we’ll be prepared.”
