MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia expressed concern on Thursday about discussions on missile defense between U.S. officials and non-NATO members such as Ukraine, local news agencies reported.

“We feel concerned,” Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov was quoted as saying by RIA news agency when asked about the possible use of a Ukrainian radar station as part of Washington’s missile defense plans.



Russia has already warned that President Barack Obama’s decision to scrap Bush-era missile defense plans for central Europe still leaves many questions unanswered.

Ryabkov represented Russia at the first round of talks with the United States on anti-missile systems in Moscow on Monday, a day before the issue was discussed by U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as part of her visit to Russia.
