We will continue to monitor any possible placements and evaluate them accordingly.- said RIA Novosti official representative of the defense department of the United States Michel Baldans.
According to her, "the deployment of short-range ballistic missiles in the Kaliningrad region is regrettable and has a destabilizing effect, given the offensive capabilities (of the complex) and proximity to several NATO allies."
Although this does not violate any bilateral agreements between the US and Russia, this placement only heightens tension between Russia and its neighbors.- Said the representative office.
Earlier, Lithuanian Defense Minister Raimundas Karoblis said that the Russian Federation had deployed the Iskander missile system in the Kaliningrad Region. Later, the head of the State Duma Defense Committee, Vladimir Shamanov, confirmed to journalists that the Russian Federation had deployed Iskanders in the Kaliningrad region. Press Secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov, commenting on these reports, said that Russia does not threaten anyone, but has the sovereign right to place weapons anywhere on its territory.
