From DPA: The US Patriot missiles soon to arrive in Poland will be located in Morag, near the Baltic coast, instead of on the outskirts of Warsaw, a Ministry of Defence spokesman said Wednesday…

Morag, a town some 100 kilometres from the Russian border, was chosen because it had good conditions to house the buildings, accommodation and technology that will come with the missile battery, Defence Ministry spokesman Janusz Sejmej told the German Press Agency dpa.

“There were no considerations here of a strategic nature,” Defence Minister Bogdan Klich told the daily Wyborcza on Wednesday. “In Morag we could offer the best conditions for American soldiers and the best technical base for the equipment.”

From the Washington Times: [T]he Patriot site was kept secret — until Wednesday, when Polish Defense Minister Bogdan Klich said it will be about 35 miles from a Russian enclave between Poland and Lithuania that includes the city of Kaliningrad.

“Morag was chosen as the location long ago, but we didn’t make it public,” Mr. Klich was quoted as saying by Poland’s PAP news agency. (photo: Polish Ministry of National Defense)
