SOCHI, Russia (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday that Moscow was not concerned about a U.S. military build-up in the Baltic region.

“We are analysing it, watching this closely. Every one of their steps are known and clear to us,” Putin said at a forum with scholars. “This doesn’t worry us. Let them train there, everything is under control.”
