Washington’s deployment of land-based missile systems near Russia‘s borders could lead to a standoff comparable to the Cuban missile crisis, an official warned.
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov threatened an escalation ‘to the hilt’ if the weapons systems remain in place.
The Kremlin has been fiercely critical of US plans to deploy missile systems in eastern Europe, and of Washington’s withdrawal from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) arms control treaty.
Ryabkov said: ‘If it really comes to deploying such systems on land, the situation will not just become complicated, it will escalate up to the hilt.’
US activity in Eastern Europe has increased in recent months, with the threat of military bases springing up in the region.
