Baltic neighbours have expressed concern about deployment of nuclear-capable missiles to Kaliningrad
The Russian enclave of Kaliningrad has once again become the focus of Nato concerns after Moscow confirmed that it was deploying several nuclear-capable Iskander missiles to the region.
Located 300km to the west of Russia and bordered by the Nato states of Lithuania and Poland, the province is the westernmost point of Russia's military presence. Residents must travel through at least two European states using a special permit to reach Russia.
Seized by the Soviet Union in 1945, the region operated as a closed military zone after the Iron Curtain divided Europe between communism and capitalism.
