Russia To Respond To US Radar Deployment In Norwegian Vardo Municipality – Zakharova

Russia will provide an adequate response to the deployment of a US radar facility in Vardo, Norway, near the Russian border, Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova said at a weekly briefing on Thursday

MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik – ) Russia will provide an adequate response to the deployment of a US radar facility in Vardo, Norway, near the Russian borderRussian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova said at a weekly briefing on Thursday.

The US-funded Globus II station on the Arctic island of Vardo is located only 50 kilometers from the border with Russia and is staffed by the Norwegian military intelligence personnel.

“There is every reason to believe that the radar will monitor specifically the Russian territory and will become part of the US global missile defense network,” Zakharova said.

“It is obvious that the military preparations of this kind … be it near the Russian border or another border, cannot be ignored by our country or any other country. Accordingly, we are considering reciprocal measures that will be taken to ensure our own security,” Zakharova stressed
