NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has warned Germany about a new medium-range missile developed by Russia.
In his column for the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper, Stoltenberg wrote about a mobile missile system that could reach Berlin, Frankfurt am Main and Munich, Deutsche Welle's Ukrainian service reports.
"This is a mobile missile system; it is easy to hide it from tracking systems," Stoltenberg said.
According to the secretary general, Russia even managed to deploy its new development. However, he did not specify the location.
European Union High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Vice-President of the European Commission Federica Mogherini on July 14 issued a statement on behalf of the EU, in which she warned about the threat of a new arms race.
As UNIAN reported earlier, Stoltenberg called on Russia to use its "last chance" to comply with the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF Treaty). Stoltenberg said the leadership of the Kremlin is obliged to dispose of missiles.
