Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
So, even though there are plenty of other ships/radars/weapons systems that are part of this defensive shield. Russia will suddenly start a world war just because little Denmark enters the defensive shield agreement?
That is ludicrous and makes absolutely no sense.
But judging by your posts thus far ...I am not shocked.

Russia delivers nuclear threat to DenmarkPublished: 21 Mar 2015
“I don’t think the Danes fully understand the consequences of what will happen if Denmark joins the American-controlled missile defence. If it happens, Danish war ships will become targets for Russian atomic missiles,” Vanin wrote.
Denmark stated that NATO anti-missile defense radars would operate on coastal frigates which typically stay close to the mainland. Ergo, nuclear attacks on such frigates would also cause collateral atomic destruction on mainland Denmark.
The NATO anti-missile defense system was inaugurated in 2010 and will not be fully operational until 2025. Despite Russia's recent huffing and puffing, it has been aware of this defensive shield for many years. This NATO defense system is headquartered in Ramstein, Germany. Yet the Russians have never threatened to nuke Germany on similar grounds. With the 2014 Russian military incursions into Crimea and eastern Ukraine and the subsequent US/EU responses, Putin has recently embarked on threatening/menacing the smaller members of NATO in an attempt to create frictions and divisiveness among the alliance members. Much like his erroneous calculus regarding his immediate neighbor, his clumsy actions here are actually promoting NATO cohesiveness and strengthening the alliance.

Missile shield or not, you are probably correct that some Danish military facilities have long been targeted by the Strategic Rocket Forces of the Russian Federation (RVSN/RF).
