The U.S. recently launched its missile defence shield in this country. The move occurred despite Russia's protests. Although Washington said the shield was aimed to protect NATO members from North Korea and Iran, Moscow claimed it posed military threat to its national security.

And now Russian President released his comment on the launch.

"If yesterday in those areas of Romania people simply did not know what it means to be in the cross-hairs, then today we will be forced to carry out certain measures to ensure our security", Putin said during his visit to Greece.

"We have these options to respond. The world knows what we are capable of in terms of medium-range missiles, lskander (missile system) has also proven itself quite great", he elaborated.

At the same time the President insisted these "certain measures would be retaliatory". He promised not to take any first steps. Putin also said, "it would be the same case with Poland".

"We will wait until Poland takes certain action. We won't take any action, no action. We won't take any action until we see rockets in areas that neighbour us", he added.

 Putin also commented on the relations with Turkey. The President said Moscow was ready to make peace with Ankara, but Turkey should apologize for shooting down the Russian fighter jet back in November, 2015.

"We didn't hear their apologies. And their desire to make amends. We hear they want to restore our relations; we want it too. We did everything to become partners with Turkey. So why they did it (shoot down the plane), I got no idea", Putin stated.
