VLASIKHA (Moscow Region), December 16. /TASS/. The Russian Strategic Missile Forces (RVSN) have no intention to deploy military units in Crimea, RVSN commander Colonel-Geenral Sergey Karakayev said on Tuesday.

"This is not necessary," he said. "The range of modern ballistic missiles allows to hit targets in any part of the globe without approaching Russia's borders."

"All missile complexes are deployed deep within Russia where they are protected from the enemy's destruction weapons," Karakayev said.
