Kaliningrad is Asymmetrical

After months of speculation, Russia has offered its "asymmetrical response" to the proposed missile shield in Eastern Europe: missiles in Kaliningrad?

That's right. "First Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Ivanov said today the deployment will not be necessary if Washington abandons plans for missile-defense facilities in Poland and the Czech Republic," reports RFE/RL. Where exactly Russia will target said missiles, or what actual purpose they will serve in Kaliningrad, remain unanswered.
