'Russia may reconfigure its military over US missile defense plans'

Russia may reconfigure its military presence in the Baltic exclave of Kaliningrad in response to US plans for missile defense sites in Europe, a top general said Wednesday, according to news reports. Gen. Vladimir Shamanov said the military's General Staff was considering ways to ensure troops are "capable of guaranteeing the protection of Russian interests," Russian news agencies reported. Shamanov, head of the General Staff's combat training department, wouldn't say what specific changes could be made to Russian forces in Russia's westernmost Kaliningrad region, which borders Poland and Lithuania.
