Hypersonic Missiles have been Deployed in the Kaliningrad Region as Russia responds to the "Hostile Policies” of NATO
Three MiG-31 fighters with Kinzhal hypersonic missiles were sent to the Chkalovsk air base as a key component to “additional measures of strategic deterrence.”
Warplanes armed with hypersonic missiles have been deployed in the Kaliningrad region, according to Russian military officials. More specifically, three MiG-31 fighters with Kinzhal hypersonic missiles were sent to the Chkalovsk air base as a key component to “additional measures of strategic deterrence.”
According to some, the deployment of the missiles is just an intended showcase of the threatening capabilities the Russian military can send to NATO. The region the missiles are located borders Poland and Lithuania, both a part of NATO. The Kinzhal missiles have a range of 1,250 miles (roughly) and fly at 10 times the speed of sound which would make it a difficult target to intercept.
Due to the “hostile policies” of NATO, Russia has been mounting its military forces in the Kaliningrad region by supplying more weaponry such as air defense systems and precision-guided Iskander missiles.
