Vladimir Putin’s henchmen are understood to be planning to position ballistic missiles near its enclave of Kaliningrad.
A military source said a final decision would be taken after “detailed analysis of the potential threat.”
The Kremlin official added: “Certainly, it’s another, unfortunately, very serious step — towards exacerbating tensions on the European continent.
“Unfortunately, if this step is implemented — and we can say they are confidently advancing towards its implementation, it may disrupt the strategic balance in Europe and therefore will clearly make Russia take corresponding countermeasures to re-establish the balance.
“It’s not a step towards strengthening stability, towards confidence building and enhancement of security in Europe.”
