Ryabkov was asked to comment on the possibility of deploying the military infrastructure of the Russian Federation in these countries in case of failure of negotiations between Russia and the West. He replied that he did not want to either confirm or exclude – and everything “depends on the American colleagues.”

The head of the NATO Military Committee, Rob Bauer, said at a briefing that Russia’s deployment of missiles in any territory “will certainly cause concern.”

“This is not NATO territory if we are talking about Cuba and Venezuela. But I can imagine that such a move would cause concern among NATO allies,” he added.

US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said at a briefing that this issue was not raised at recent US-NATO talks in Geneva, and he has no intention of responding to bragging in public comments.

Sullivan added, however, that the United States would respond decisively if Russia moved towards troop deployment in Latin America.
