Polish foreign minister: Missile shield in Poland poses no threat to Russia

President Vladimir Putin should know that the missile shield in Poland has no bearing on Russia’s security, Polish Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski told PAP Polish news agency in an interview referring to the Russian president’s warning over implementing the US missile shield.

President Putin on Friday warned Poland and Romania they could find themselves in the potential crosshairs of Russian rockets because they are hosting elements of a US missile shield that Moscow considers a threat to its national security.

Earlier this month the U.S. military switched on the Romanian part of the shield. Another part of the shield is getting ready to be implemented in Poland.
