The Czech Republic may be a target for Russian missiles

The Czech Republic and Poland will risk being targeted by Russian missile if they agree to build U.S. anti-missile defence bases in their countries. These are words of the top Russian general Nikolai Solovtsov as a reaction to the meeting of Czech and Polish Prime Ministers in Warsaw yesterday.

The Prime Ministers agreed that their countries will probably say yes to the U.S. proposal. “I think it is in our joint interest to negotiate this initiative and to build in our area the missile defense,” said the Prime Minister of the Czech Republic Mirek Topolanek.

According to Russia, the anti-missile defence bases could start a new arms race. Analysts say that Russia may withdraw from the Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces Treaty signed by Mikhail Gorbachev and Ronald Reagan in 1987.
