The Kremlin responded to trump’s plans to increase military spending

Plans to increase military spending in the US will not touch Russia if it does not lead to a violation of the strategic balance. This was stated press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov, commenting on the statements of the President of the United States Donald trump.

“This is purely an internal matter of the United States – how to increase defense spending, where the money comes from. It is unlikely for us, until some increase in costs does not break any existing balances in the sphere of strategic deterrence,” – said the representative of the Kremlin.

Earlier trump in an interview, Fox said that he intends to significantly increase funding of the American armed forces and make them the best in the world by the end of his term in office. In an address to the U.S. Congress the American President also said he intends to stop the policy of cuts in the military budget.
