The White House said the Russian alert is part of a pattern of manufacturing threats to Moscow to justify aggression.

“We have seen him do this over and over again. Russia has never been threatened by NATO, is Russia under threat from Ukraine. It’s all a pattern of President Putin and we’re going to stand by it. White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki told ABC News, “We have the ability to defend ourselves, but we don’t have to deal with President Putin from what we’re seeing here.” Yes, he needs to be told too.”
