TURKA SETTLEMENT (Buryatia), June 24. /TASS/. Instead of counting on NATO weapons, the Baltic States should think about the threats they have created for their countries by deploying elements of the anti-missile shield, the deputy secretary of the Russian Security Council, Yevgeny Lukyanov, said on Wednesday.
"They’d better think about other things - the deployment of missile defence system elements that are targeting our strategic nuclear forces, that is where their problem is, as they become our targets," Lukyanov told reporters.
"If they like to be targets because of American weapons systems, it is their choice," he added. "The logic of the conflict is that nobody wins from a conflict, but somebody finds itself in between (the opposing parties)," he said, adding that this is exactly the situation the Baltic States could face.
He declined to assess potentials of heavy armaments that the United States intended to supply to Baltic states. "Unhealthy agitation of certain states, new members of the Atlantic bloc, is not substantiation of the existence of some threats allegedly coming from us," he said.
