WARSAW, November 28 — RIA Novosti. The President of Poland Andrzej Duda expressed concern about the placement of Russian weapons in Kaliningrad region, saying it demonstrates the need to strengthen the defense capability of the region.
Earlier in the Russian defense Ministry confirmed media reports on the relocation of mobile missile complexes “Iskander-M” in Kaliningrad oblast. According to the official representative of the military Department Igor Konashenkov, “the big secret of the transportation complex no one is doing”, moreover, “one “Iskander” was especially exposed under a passing American spy satellite to clarify the parameters of this spacecraft”.
“Of course, I’m concerned as this concerned and Mr. President (Germany), Joachim gauck, with whom we spoke today on this topic. But it is a question of building us security environment in our region, this good cooperation in the framework of the Alliance, as well as neighborly cooperation,” said Duda, in an interview with Polish television in Szczecin, where on Monday held a meeting with the German colleague.
The moderator noted that, according to some experts, the placement of the arms in the Kaliningrad region is “preparing to negotiate” with the elected President of the USA Donald Ladder, in which the latter may be discarded, for example, the construction of the Polish missile defense base in redzikowo or to strengthen the Eastern flank of NATO.
“I doubt that Mr. President, Donald trump has let himself be intimidated by Russian missiles. Even if it was an attempt to pressure, such pressure can not resist… I am against any violent reactions in Russia, too, might have their concerns,” — says Duda.
Press Secretary of the Russian President, Dmitry Peskov, said earlier that Russia is doing everything that is necessary to protect himself against expansion toward its borders by NATO.
