New York Governor Andrew Cuomo sent 1,000 local National Guard soldiers to Washington. The fighters, according to Mr. Cuomo, are necessary for the “peaceful transfer of power.”
“At the request of the US National Guard, I am sending 1,000 members of the New York National Guard to DC for up to 2 weeks. A peaceful transfer of power is the cornerstone of our democracy, and New York stands ready to help ensure that the will of the American people is carried out safely, ”Cuomo wrote on Twitter.
Previously, the Pentagon authorized the mobilization of the entire DC National Guard, which has approximately 1,800 troops. An additional 200 troops will be deployed from Virginia.
We will remind, supporters of the current US President Donald Trump, demanding a revision of the presidential election results, broke into the Capitol building in Washington. Senators suspended the meeting amid protests. Congressmen were evacuated to a military base. At the moment, the Capitol has been cleared of demonstrators, the debate has resumed.
