GORKI, November 23 (Itar-Tass) — Russia will deploy strike systems like the Iskander ones in case of further U.S. missile defence deployment in Europe, President Dmitry Medvedev said on Wednesday.
“If other measures are insufficient, the Russian Federation will deploy contemporary strike systems [for example, the Iskander systems] in the west and south in order to prevent fire damage from U.S. missile defence deployed in Europe,” Medvedev said.
“The deployment of the Iskand missile system in the Kaliningrad region will be one of such steps in this aspect,” the Russian leader stressed.
