News agency claims that ‘Russian proxies’ cause of terror alert at American bases in Europe

(MENAFN) A news agency has reported that a recent heightened terror alert at United States military installations across Europe stemmed from concerns that Russia may have orchestrated plans to target these facilities through surrogate operatives. The allegations, dismissed by Moscow as unfounded, highlight ongoing tensions between Russia and Western nations.

According to the news agency`s sources, in late June, Western media disclosed a credible terrorist threat targeting United States military personnel and facilities in Europe. This development prompted the Pentagon to implement security measures not seen in over a decade. The response was reportedly triggered by intelligence indicating that "Russian-backed actors were contemplating acts of sabotage" against American installations. The information, received within the past two weeks, suggested a coordinated effort by Russian proxies to conduct remote sabotage operations across Europe.

The alert led to the activation of Force Protection Condition 'Charlie' at the bases, indicating a high state of vigilance against potential terrorist actions. This condition, as per United States Army regulations, is enacted when there is intelligence or an incident suggesting an imminent threat to personnel or facilities.

While the United States European Command declined direct comment on the specific claims, a spokesperson affirmed to a news agency that the heightened vigilance was not solely tied to a single threat, underscoring broader security concerns.

European officials have previously accused Moscow of involvement in several incidents, including arson attacks in London and Lithuania, and an attempted arson in Poland. These incidents have been attributed to alleged Russian intelligence efforts to manipulate local actors to destabilize Western support for Ukraine.

The reported developments underscore the complex geopolitical dynamics at play in Europe, where allegations of state-sponsored subversion and countermeasures heighten diplomatic tensions and security measures among key global players.
