Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaitė said that Russia’s military activity in the Baltic Sea is a threat to not only the Baltic States, but to Western European countries as well, as reported by Delfi.
While commenting on the presence of the Russian Navy in the Baltic Sea and the recent deployment of nuclear-capable Iskander missile systems to Kaliningrad, Grybauskaitė said “There is no doubt that it is not directed just against the Baltic States, but against European capitals. This conspicuous increase in tension between the East and the West has been long noted by the Baltic States. With each passing day, it becomes more and more obvious.”
Earlier this month, the Russian Defense Ministry confirmed that nuclear-capable Iskander-M missile systems had been transferred to the Russian Baltic Sea exclave of Kaliningrad.
