USA criticized Russia’s plans to deploy Iskander missile complex in Kaliningrad


U.S. Department of State calls on Russia not to deploy missile systems Iskander and S-400 in the Kaliningrad region, as it destabilizes the European security.

“Russia used to threaten to place their Iskander missile complexes in Kaliningrad for the past decade in response to a variety of events in Europe, none of which required such a military response,” State Department spokesman John Kirby said.

“We call on Russia to refrain from words and actions that do not meet the objectives of ensuring security and stability in the region”, he added.

Last Monday, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that NATO objects that threaten Russia will be targets for Russian missiles strikes.
