    Russia's foreign minister Sergei Lavrov warns Poland over US anti-missile shield

    Russia's foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, has told his Polish counterpart that Moscow regards a US anti-missile shield, which Poland has agreed to host, as a direct threat to Russian forces.

    Speaking after meeting with Poland's foreign minister, Radek Sikorski, in Warsaw, Mr Lavrov, on his first visit to a Western capital since August's Georgian-Russian conflict, said: "Russia cannot fail to see the risks emerging as a result of US strategic forces coming closer to our borders."
    Both Poland and the United States insist that the shield poses no threat to Russia, and is intended to protect the West from rouge states in the Middle East.
    But although Mr Lavrov dismissed these claims, arguing the American system targeted Russia, he added that he was open to further discussion on the subject, and tried to ease his country's strained relations with Warsaw by saying that Poland itself posed no threat to his country.
    His conciliatory words, which were matched by those of Mr Sikorski, came as marked change of tack from Russia, who has previously threatened to target nuclear weapons at its former Central-European vassal state as a response to Poland agreeing to host American interceptor missiles.

    "We cannot fail to see the risks emerging as a result of U.S. strategic forces coming closer to our borders," Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told a joint news conference with his Polish counterpart Radoslaw Sikorski.
    "We are certain this system in Europe can have no other target for a long time to come but Russia's strategic forces."

    Putin also warned Poland and the Czech Republic against hosting the U.S. missile shield. "Our targeting of these countries will happen as soon as these missiles are brought," Putin said. "Please do not instigate an arms race in Europe. It is not needed. What should we do? Sit pretty while they deploy missiles?"

    Oh look the same wonderful man who told British Foreign Minister Dave Milliband to fuck off repeatedly when Mr. Milliband attempted to discuss the Georgia situation with him.

    He's so butch. Can you please next time send us a photo of Paris Hilton. At least her vulgarity is easier on the eyes.
