Holy Cold War Batman! Russia threatens to deploy missiles in row with US

Russia could deploy missiles to its EU borders aimed at missile defence facilities in Europe planned by the United States. ¬†Iskander missiles, which have a range of up to 500 kilometres, may be stationed in the Kaliningrad exclave, if Washington goes ahead with a defence system whose sites would be in countries close enough to pose a threat to Russia. ¬†NATO had been trying to broker a deal for Russia’s cooperation with the US plan, but refused Russia’s proposal to run the system jointly.
