Russia may send more Iskander missiles to Kaliningrad after U.S. moves: RIA cites senior MP

MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia may send more Iskander tactical missiles to its Kaliningrad exclave in response to the latest U.S. actions in the Baltics, the RIA news agency cited the head of the lower house of parliament’s defense committee, Vladimir Shamanov, as saying on Thursday.

Russia accused the United States on Thursday of illegally building up its forces in Poland and the Baltic region, saying it had quietly deployed an entire armored division in breach of the main pact that governs Moscow’s relations with NATO.
