The Chairman of the Duma Committee on defence Yury Shvydkin commented the statement of NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, called on Russia to “transparency” in the placement of missile complexes “Iskander” in the Kaliningrad region. Svitkin stressed that Moscow is not obliged to provide to Alliance such information.

The MP said in comments to RIA Novosti that he sees no reason for this exchange of information between Russia and NATO because the Alliance has not taken a “real” action to start constructive dialogue.
Svitkin noted that Russia’s actions, unlike the actions of the United States, do not contradict the norms of international law, while NATO should be double standards when he says one thing and does another.

He noted that they are on the border with Poland and Lithuania. “We call on Russia to maximum transparency,” — said Stoltenberg.
