Russia has said it may deploy Iskander ballistic missile launchers in Kaliningrad
Russia has turned on a new incoming missile early warning system in its westernmost region in response to US plans for a missile shield in Europe.
President Dmitry Medvedev ordered the system to be activated on a visit to the radar unit in Kaliningrad, a Baltic region bordering EU countries.
The unit is equipped with the new Voronezh-DM radar system.
Mr Medvedev has warned Russian missiles could be deployed on the EU’s borders if the shield is installed.
“I expect that this step will be seen by our partners as the first signal of the readiness of our country to make an adequate response to the threats which the missile shield poses for our strategic nuclear forces,” Mr Medvedev said in a statement carried by Russian news agencies.
Quoted by Interfax, he said Russia was ready to listen to new anti-missile defence proposals from “Western partners” but verbal statements were not enough.
“Verbal statements, unfortunately, do not guarantee the defence of our interests,” the Russian president said.
“If other steps are taken then, naturally, we are ready to listen to them but, in any case, verbal statements are not enough.”
