THE US has ramped up its military response to Russian aggression, with plans for a permanent military base in Poland – and a rapid build of tanks along Vladimir Putin’s border.

The US is hitting back at Russian aggression with a terrifying military build-up, according to lead allies of the Trump administration. Earlier this week, the US struck a colossal £320million deal with Poland to set up a ballistic missile system in the country – with rockets capable of striking targets within Russia. At the same time, incredible images this week showed US battle tanks arriving in Poland on the border with Russia ahead of one of the world’s biggest ever military drills.

Poland’s foreign minister also admitted that his country is working on creating a “permanent American military base” in the country to compete with Russia.

This has sparked fear around the possibility of a military clash between the two global superpowers.

Following the purchase of the M142 HIMARS weapons system, foreign minister Jacek Czaputowicz said Poland and the US were “continuing discussions” regarding further US deployments on Polish soil.

The large-scale Polish drills with the US is part of Operation Atlantic Resolve – a military bid to stop the spread of Russian influence.

Congressman Mike Turner told CNBC at the Munich Security Conference: “Trump has made efforts to arm the soldiers in Ukraine, against Russian aggression.

“He has moved to increase sanctions. He has moved to increase – almost double – the amount of European reassurance dollars.

“And he has moved US troops into Europe as well as equipment in countries like Poland.”

“We are rising toward countering Russian aggression.”

The concern around an outbreak of war between Russia and the US comes after reports this week that Russia had carried out a “mock invasion” exercise over Norway.

Lieutenant General Morten Haga Lunde of the Norwegian Intelligence Service revealed this week that Russia staged “two practice attack runs” last year.
