Poland voices concern over Russian missile deployment

Poland’s foreign ministry issued a statement of concern on December 16 2013 over reports that Russia has deployed nuclear-capable missiles close to its borders.

The reaction has come on the back of the news in Russian and German media saying Moscow had deployed Iskander-M missiles in the Kaliningrad exclave, which is separated from Russia proper and wedged between Poland, Lithuania, and the Baltic Sea.

Germany’s Bild newspaper first reported over the weekend that Russia had deployed about 10 Iskander systems in its Kaliningrad exclave at some point in the past year.
