Russia moves nuclear Iskander missiles closer to E.U

Russia revealed that its armed forces had moved nuclear-capable Iskander missiles closer to Europe's borders in response to the US-led deployment of a disputed air defense shield. The announcement prompted fears in the US and neighboring states such as Poland whose Poland's foreign ministry called the planned missile movement "disturbing". 

American State Department deputy spokeswoman “Marie Harf” said "we've urged Russia to take no steps to destabilize the region", adding that the US had also passed on to Moscow its neighbors’ concerns.

Russian news agencies quoted defense ministry spokesman “Igor Konashenkov” saying that "Iskander operational-tactical missile systems have indeed been commissioned by the Western Military District's missile and artillery forces" , adding that Russia's deployment "doesn’t violate any international treaties or agreements and should therefore not be subject to protests from the West.
