VILNIUS, December 16. /ITAR-TASS/. Lithuania is concerned about the reports Iskander defence missile complexes have been deployed near the country’s border in Russia’s westernmost Kaliningrad region and has entered into consultations with NATO on the issue, Lithuanian Defence Minister Juozas Olekas told journalists Monday.
“We are monitoring the alarming situation and exchanging opinions with both regional partners and NATO partners,” he said. Olekas described the deployment of Iskander battalions in Russia’s Western military district as “another spiral of militarization” in Russia’s west. The partners were discussing likely reaction and protection measures to be taken should any incidents occur, Olekas said.
On Monday Russian officials confirmed Iskander launchers’ deployment in the western military district.
