Russia to move nuclear-capable missiles closer to Europe as Vladimir Putin claims Nato expansion is threat

Russia to move nuclear-capable missiles closer to Europe as Vladimir Putin claims Nato expansion is threat

In the same interview, Mr Putin went on to claim that eastern European Nato members - several of which were formerly under Soviet rule - felt under "pressure" to do the bidding of the United States.

"When a country joins Nato, it becomes next to impossible for it to resist pressure from a major Nato leader such as the United States and hence it may deploy anything...a missile defense system, new bases or, if need be, missile strike systems," Mr Putin said.


However, president-elect Trump has in the past criticized Nato as "obsolete and extremely expensive." He has also suggested he would not defend other alliance members unless they paid a fair share for their defences.
