RUSSIA’S STRATEGIC TOOL AGAINST EUROPE – ISLAMIC MIGRATION
Russia and Syria are deliberately using migration as an aggressive strategy towards Europe, the senior NATO commander in Europe, US Gen Philip Breedlove , has said on Tuesday 03/01/2016 . He said they were “weaponising” migration to destabilise and undermine the continent. The General also suggested that criminals, extremists and fighters were hiding in the flow of migrants. In testimony to the Senate armed services committee, US general Philip Breedlove said that the Islamic State terror group is “spreading like a cancer” among refugees.
Migrants are continuing to accumulate in Greece, after Macedonia stopped allowing more than a trickle through. New figures suggest last year’s total of one million seaborne migrants could be matched well before the end of the year.
The International Organization for Migration (IOM) said nearly 129,500 migrants had arrived by sea so far in 2016, plus another 1,545 by land. It said 418 had drowned or were missing.
Gen Breedlove is the head of the US European Command as well as NATO’s Supreme Allied Commander Europe. He told the US Senate Armed Services Committee that the crisis was allowing Russia to use non-military means to create divisions in the NATO alliance and Europe.
