A se­nior Rus­sian law­maker says Moscow could de­ploy more sta­teof-the-art mis­siles in its west­ern­most re­gion in re­sponse to the U.S. mil­i­tary buildup in Poland.

The head of the Rus­sian par­lia­ment’s de­fense af­fairs com­mit­tee, Re­tired Gen. Vladimir Shamanov, said Thurs­day that Rus­sia could take re­tal­ia­tory steps in re­sponse to the U.S. in­creas­ing the num­ber of its weapons in Poland. Shamanov said, in re­marks car­ried by Rus­sian news agen­cies, that Moscow could de­ploy ad­di­tional Iskan­der mis­sile sys­tems in its western ar­eas.
