Russia: March 7, 2001

Archives

: US intelligence reports that the Russians have moved tactical nuclear warheads into the Kaliningrad enclave, a small parcel of territory between Poland and Lithuania on the Baltic Sea coast which Russia retained after the collapse of the Warsaw Pact. Russia quickly denied the report and Baltic states said they were "astounded" by it. The Pentagon and US State Department quickly avoided any statement on the issue. If the report is true, this means Russia has broken an unwritten 1991 agreement between President Bush (Sr.) and President Gorbachev under which Russia promised to keep its nuclear weapons at home.--Stephen V Cole

beggar Help Keep Us Online!
 

Yep, we have been forced to beg for your support. We want our readers to have a good experience while they are here. We avoid video ads and populating the pages with more than three ads unlike other sites, but this has a consequence for us -- lower revenues. We are bringing in a third of the revenue we brought in just a few years ago. We are not quite homeless yet, but we need your support to keep going. There are three ways you can help:

  1. Make sure you spread the word about us. Two ways to do that are to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
  2. Subscribe to our daily newsletter. We’ll send the news to your email box, and you don’t have to come to the site unless you want to read columns or see photos.
  3. You can contribute to the health of StrategyPage. A contribution is not a donation that you can deduct at tax time, but a form of crowdfunding. We store none of your information when you contribute..

Drake appreciates any help you can give him.
