Russian President Threatens Targeting US Missile Defense Sites in Europe

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said that Russia will target US missile defense sites in Europe with its missiles if a deal is not reached regarding US missile defense plans.

Medvedev said that Russia will deploy missiles in its westernmost Kaliningrad region and other areas if the Russia and NATO fail to reach a deal on US-led missile defense plans. He further stated that Russia may not participate in further arms reduction negotiations if the US proceeds with its plans to deploy a missile defense shield in Europe.

Medvedev considers the missile defense shield as a threat to Russia's nuclear force.
