Russia to continue relocating Iskander systems to Kaliningrad

The Russian military have more than once relocated the Iskander ballistic missile systems to the Kaliningrad region and will continue doing so in future for training purposes, spokesman of the Russian Defense Ministry Major General Igor Konashenkov told reporters on Oct. 8.

"The Iskander ballistic missile system is mobile, as during the training process units of the missile forces year-round improve their skills covering big distances across the Russian territory by various means: by air, by sea and by own movement," the general said.

"Here, the Kaliningrad region is not an exception, and to there those units have been relocating and would be relocated during the training courses of the Russian Armed Forces," he added.
