Why is Russia accusing the US of provoking Arms Race in the Asia Pacific Region?  Moscow has alleged that the US forces deployed in the Asia Pacific Region have exceeded 400,000 which is initiating a new arms race in the region. This was stated by the first deputy chief of the Main Directorate of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, Vice Admiral Igor Kostyukov.

India-Pakistan War Possible Due to Ceasefire Violations and Kashmir Killings – Pakistan

“To implement its ambitions of rapid deployment of US troops anywhere in the Asia Pacific region, the United States has created a strong base of 400,000 troops. Presently, there are more than 50 large military bases in the Asia Pacific region and more than 200 US military facilities, said Kostyukov.

According to Kostyukov, one of the main instruments for carrying out Washington’s foreign policy are carrier-based strike groups. One of them is constantly based in Japan, he added.

“It is possible to for the US to periodically deploy up to two carrier-based strike groups in the western part of the Pacific.The most worrisome situation was the demonstration of US military power in November 2017 due to the escalation of conflict with North Korea.

Additionally, the US considers an effective means of demonstrating the strength of strategic bomber Kostyukov said. “At least six B-52, B-1 and B-2 bombers are permanently stationed at the Andersen airbase, which is located on the island of Guam. In some cases, there are even 15+ strategic bombers that regularly patrol the airspace over the Pacific Ocean”, – he said.

THAAD Impact in the Asia Pacific Region

The Pentagon is also actively deploying powerful THAAD anti-missile systems in the Asia Pacific Region “provoking an arms race in the region.” “At present, the US has deployed 19 ships which have anti-tank missiles, two anti-missile batteries THAAD, three anti-aircraft missile battalions and five mobile radars, and Washington is expanding its cooperation with Japan and the Republic of Korea,” said Kostyukov.
