Russia to strengthen Baltic fleet over U.S. missile plans: report
MOSCOW: The Russian navy will reinforce its Baltic Fleet over U.S. plans to
place Patriot missiles in Poland, the RIA Novosti news agency reported on
Thursday, citing a senior navy official.
"Primarily, surface, underwater and air components of the Baltic Fleet will
be enhanced," the unidentified source was quoted as saying.
The official said new corvette class warships with long-range,
high-precision cruise missiles aboard would join the fleet.
The remarks came a day after Poland announced that a U.S. Patriot missile
battery would be deployed in Morag, a small town in northeastern Poland
about 100 km from the Russian border.
Polish Defense Minister Bogdan Klich said on Wednesday the decision was
neither political nor strategic, explaining that good infrastructure was the
only reason to use a base near Russia's Baltic enclave of Kaliningrad
instead of one outside Warsaw.
