"Primarily, surface, underwater and air components of the Baltic Fleet will be reinforced," the source said.
He added that new corvette class warships with long-range high-precision cruise missiles on board would join the fleet.
The Russian naval spokesman's statement came a day after Poland announced plans to deploy a battery of U.S. Patriot missiles just 100 kilometers (60 miles) from the Russian border. (photo: Daily Mail)
