Russian President Vladimir Putin has said his country will move missiles closer to Europe over “concern” about Nato expansion.
Moscow will deploy S-400 surface-to-air missiles and nuclear-capable Iskander missiles in the exclave of Kaliningrad, a pro-Kremlin lawmaker told the state-owned RIA news agency.
“Why are we reacting to Nato expansion so emotionally? We are concerned by Nato’s decision making,” Mr Putin said in an interview due to be broadcast later on Monday.
“What should we do? We have, therefore, to take countermeasures, which means to target with our missile systems the facilities, that, in our opinion, start posing a threat to us,” he added.
