If World War 3 speculations are true, Russia has welcomed the Iskander missile along with its S-400 air missiles in its Kaliningrad enclave, making it very likely that the nation is bound to target Europe.
The Iskander missile has the capability to affect almost an area measuring around 300 miles. That means the missile, once launched, could conveniently target Berlin, Sweden and Poland if Russia versus Europe war commences. On the other hand, NATO “Growler” S-400 is an anti-aircraft missile system that could cover short- as well as long-range targets.
The United States State Department said on Monday that Russian deployment of missiles to its enclave is enough to “destabilize” the security of European nations. “Russia has made threats to move its Iskander missiles to Kaliningrad for the past decade in response to a variety of developments in Europe, none of which demand such a military response,” spokesman John Kirby told reporters.
It was only last week when Russian President Vladimir Putin reacted to World War 3 rumors and said that the drill exercises and launch of the missiles were just an effort to ensure security for his own nation. He said that the nation did not intend making its rival countries feel insecure. He mentioned that it was more important for the nation to safeguard itself first than destroy other nations.
Following such a positive speech that came from Putin, Russian deployment of harsh missiles was unexpected. However, if Express UK reports are followed, the launch of missiles is due to the expansion of NATO, as observed these days.
