Russia on Tuesday revealed it has activated its radar warning system in Kaliningrad. Russian President Dmitry Medvedev told senior officials he expected the move to be “seen by our partners as the first signal of the readiness of our country to make an adequate response” to the U.S. shield; the decision follows US decision to install US missile shields in Europe.

Moscow has warned it would also consider stationing missile defense systems in the western and southern parts of the country if Washington continued its missile deployment in Europe. Medvedev stressed his country was willing to listen to the Western nations regarding the developments, if they provided a written agreement; Russian officials have demanded a legal written guarantee from the US and NATO that its shields would not target Russia.
