The deployments are part of President Vladimir Putin's program to modernize defenses, and come amid strained ties between Russia and NATO over U.S. plans to deploy parts of a missile shield in Central and Eastern Europe.
Reports say the Topol-M mobile missiles, which carry a single warhead, will be deployed in Teikovo about 240 kilometers northeast of Moscow. No details have been given for the number of missiles, however.
