Russia mulls scrapping missiles



“In response to the US intention to drop its missile shield plans in Europe, the Russian General Staff could decide not to deploy a reinforced group of Iskander missiles in the country’s west (Kaliningrad Region),” the government-run RIA Novosti quoted an unnamed military source.

“Undoubtedly, Washington’s cancellation of its missile defence facilities will not remain unnoticed,” the source said. Obama on Thursday announced that due to a re-assessment of the threat from Iran, the US would not deploy missile defence elements in the Czech Republic and Poland.
