Veiled threat

MOSCOW, July 4, 2007 (AFP) – Russia on Wednesday issued a veiled threat to deploy rocket units in the Kaliningrad exclave near Poland if Washington does not draw back from its missile defence plans in central Europe.
“If our offers are accepted, Russia will not believe it necessary to deploy new rocket units in the European part of the country, including in Kaliningrad,” Russia’s First Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Ivanov was quoted by Russian news agencies as saying.
