Пожалуй, ключевой — и наиболее доходчивой для наших зарубежных читателей! — фразой статьи является приведённое заявление российского президента В. Путина (в ходе совместной пресс-конференции с премьер-министром Греции Алексисом Ципрасом):

«Ещё вчера некоторые части территории Румынии не знали, что такое быть под прицелом (выделение — ред.), однако сегодня нам придется произвести определенные действия, которые будут обеспечивать нашу безопасность».

Ну что же, теперь, по всем признакам, узнают

Russia insisted it was not making the first step, but only responding to moves by Washington

Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned Romania and Polandthey could find themselves in the sights of Russian rockets because they are hosting elements of a US missile shield that Moscow considers a threat to its security.

Putin issued his starkest warning yet over the missile shield, saying that Moscow had stated repeatedly that it would have to take retaliatory steps but that Washington and its allies had ignored the warnings.

Earlier this month the US military — which says the shield is needed to protect from Iran, not threaten Russia — switched on the Romanian part of the shield. Work is going ahead on another part of the shield, in Poland.

«It will be the same case with Poland,» he said.

Putin did not specify what actions Russia would take, but he insisted that it was not making the first step, only responding to moves by Washington. «We won’t take any action until we see rockets in areas that neighbour us.»

He said the argument that the project was needed to defend against Iran made no sense because an international deal had been reached to curb Tehran’s nuclear programme. The missiles that will form the shield can easily reach Russian cities, he said.

«How can that not create a threat for us?» Putin asked.

He voiced frustration that Russia’s complaints about the missile shield had not been heeded.

«We’ve been repeating like a mantra that we will be forced to respond… Nobody wants to hear us. Nobody wants to conduct negotiations with us.»

Putin sounded a defiant note over Crimea, the Ukrainian region which Russia annexed in 2014. Moscow said it was acting on the will of the Crimean people, who voted to join Russia, but Western governments say it was an illegal land grab.

«As far as Crimea is concerned, we consider this question is closed forever,» Putin said. «Russia will not conduct any discussions with anyone on this subject.»

The Russian leader also touched on relations with Turkey, which have been toxic since the Turkish military shot down a Russian fighter jet near the Syrian-Turkish border last November. Ankara said the plane strayed into Turkish airspace, an allegation Moscow denies.

Putin said he was ready to consider restoring relations with Ankara, but that would require a first step from Turkey, and so far there was no sign of that.

Putin was asked about the South Stream project, a planned gas pipeline from Russia that would have gone under the Black Sea to Bulgaria and onwards to southern Europe. Russia shelved the project after Bulgaria backed out.

He blamed the US government and the European Commission, saying they had pressured Sofia to withdraw. But he said Russia was going ahead with an extension of its Nordstream pipeline in the Baltic, and he hoped no one would try to hinder that project.
