Russia plans to bolster its military presence in Crimea
- 3 months ago
According to Interfax news agency Russia has reportedly taken in consideration building a missile-warning radar station in the disputed region of Crimea by 2019.
The Kremlin claims it will aid in tracking ballistic missiles and also allow it to enhance its tracking system of vessels in the disputed waters.
This of course comes to mixed reactions given the latest developments in the peninsula, the Ukrainian President Poroshenko calling on NATO to dispatch naval fleets to the conflict area and Donald Trump threatening to cancel his meeting with Putin ahead of this weekend’s G20 summit in Buenos Aires.
