Russia ‘to deploy missiles on EU border this year’

The Iskander tactical ballistic missiles have a range of 400 km and were last used in the 2008 war with Georgia.

From AFP:  Russia plans to deploy Iskander missiles on the European Union’s border later this year, a source in its western Baltic Fleet told the Interfax news agency on Wednesday.

A source told the news agency that senior naval staff had confirmed plans to assign personnel for a naval unit set to service the missile complexes in the Kaliningrad exclave that borders EU members Poland and Lithuania.  (photo: RIA Novosti)
