No plans for arming of the Baltic Fleet with nuclear weapons, yet


The are no plans, so far, for arming the Baltic Fleet with nuclear weapons as a response for the installations of Anti-missile systems in Poland. This was reported by the chairman of the Defence Committee of the State Duma, Victor Zavarzin.

Nevertheless, the Russian response to NATO is being prepared. "I say this responsibly, we do have new models of high precision weapons, which we will deploy near these positional regions. The preparations are under way." - quotes the words of Victor Zavarzin, the Rossiyskaya Gazeta.

The delegation of Duma deputies and high-ranking military officers has completed a three day visit to the Kaliningrad region. The guests not only conducted a meeting at the Baltic Fleet Headquarters, but also familiarized themselves with the life of the personnel and the state of battle readiness of the Baltic Fleet, visited the destroyer Nastoychiviy, met with the command and cadets of the Admiral Ushakov Baltic Naval Institute, and reviewed the Yantar naval shipyard.

"We believe that today, the Fleet meets the requirements of battle readiness," - concludes Victor Zavarzin.
