 Russian ambassador to Denmark threatened nuclear strike against the country

Russia's ambassador to Denmark has said Moscow could send nuclear missiles against the country.

Censor.NET reports, citing NV.

"I do not think that the Danes fully understand the consequences if Denmark joins the US-led missile defence shield. If that happens, Danish warships become targets for Russian nuclear missiles," Russia's ambassador to Denmark Mikhail Vanin told Jyllands-Posten.

Vanin said that Denmark would become "part of the threat to Russia and relations with Russia will be damaged". Vanin warned that joining the defence shield would be "Denmark's decision" and that the country would "lose both money and security".

Danish Foreign Minister Martin Lidegaard said the comments were "inacceptable" and that Vanin had "crossed the line" by saying that "everyone who joins" the shield "in the future will be a target for Russian ballistic missiles."
