Russische Raketenstationierung

Russian missile emplacement.

Moscow confirmed on 16 Dec 2013 that it had put short-range mobile SS-26, “Iskander” or “Stone” missiles on its western borders that could travel approx. 500 kilometers. From Kaliningrad in the island territory formerly known as East Prussia, an ARD tagesschau.de graphic showed for example, a circle with a 500-km radius could reach all of Poland and Lithuania and even pieces of Sweden and Finland, though perhaps not quite Berlin.

These missiles travel at several times the speed of sound and were first deployed against Georgia in 2008, Spiegel.de said.
