Russia has threatened the US this week against unilateral deployment of the US Missile Defense Components in Eastern and Central Europe. High ranking Russian General Yevgeny Buzhinsky, head of the Russian Defense Ministry's international military co-operation department, in an article in Izvestia, picked up by the Associated Press and carried by Mosnews said that the US should refrain from unilateral action and negotiate with Moscow.
Buzhinsky stated that Russia sees the deployment as a threat to its security and will take retaliatory measures though he did not explain what they would be.
The great anxiety has been around discussions that the US is installing a Missile Defense Components in Poland and the Czech Republic although the Polish Government denies that they have even been approached.
The US has insisted that these installations are not against Russia but terrorists but Russia does not seem to believe any of that.
