This military "capacity building" near the Russian border illustrates the game of hardball that Washington and Brussels are playing. They are putting a loaded gun to Putin's head - the threat is being made to either submit or face expanded war and chaos similar to what the US-NATO have already unleashed in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, and beyond. The US corporate oligarchy thought they had Moscow safely in the bag back in the early 1990's.
