Russia dangerous for my country: Polish PM

Polish Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski has said hosting a U.S anti-missile shield could help protect Poland from possible threats from Russia. Following this statement, Russia's Foreign Ministry has warned Poland not to provoke further political conflic

Mr Kaczynski said Poland wants to host the installation because it will boost the country's security, insisting Russia still considers Poland to be within its sphere of influence.
Shortly after, Poland's Foreign Ministry seemed to backtrack saying the shield is aimed to prevent any threats from Iran – and is not designed to be aimed at Russia. 
The plan, opposed by Moscow, is to put installations for the shield in Poland and the Czech Republic.
