Lukashenko considers missiles

November 15, 2008|Times Wire Reports

Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko was quoted as saying that Russia had suggested deploying missiles in his former Soviet state to counter a proposed U.S. antimissile system in nearby countries.

Lukashenko told the Wall Street Journal that even if Moscow did not deploy the Iskander missiles, Belarus would consider buying them for its own use. He also supported a Kremlin proposal to place the missiles in Russia's Baltic enclave of Kaliningrad.
