Foreign Ministry urged the United States to withdraw nuclear weapons from Europe 

24
Moscow calls on Washington to withdraw its nuclear weapons from Europe, which hosts up to 200 aviation bombs. This was stated by Mikhail Ulyanov, Director of the Department for Nonproliferation and Arms Control of the Russian Foreign Ministry.


Russia has withdrawn all its nuclear weapons into its national territory. We believe that the same should have been done for a long time by the American side.
- quotes Ulyanova RIA News.

Foreign Ministry urged the United States to withdraw nuclear weapons from Europe


He noted that the US continues to hold up to the 200 aerial bombs in Europe and plans to modernize them so that they become, according to a number of retired US military, “more suitable for use” by increasing accuracy and reducing some destructive power

According to the diplomat, the deployment in Europe of additional nuclear warheads in excess of the existing ones can only aggravate the situation.

December 13 Russia's Permanent Representative to NATO Alexander Grushko reminded:

The Americans, on a rotational basis, transferred an armored brigade, a brigade of army aviation to Europe, and deployed weapons for another land brigade in warehouses. In the Norwegian and Barents Seas, we see an increase in US naval formations. Norway has a US Marine battalion. The implementation of plans to create a European segment of US missile defense in Romania and Poland continues. Development of joint nuclear missions involving non-nuclear countries is underway. Obviously, this worsens the security situation not only regionally, but also in Europe as a whole, including in those states that today are fighting for the deployment of foreign military forces on their territory and positioning themselves as "front-line"

      That's what the contracts are to break them. That's what diplomats are to prove that violation of the contract is not such. And the right to cancel the strong has not yet been guessed by a separate agreement.

    Something in the Foreign Ministry of true gentlemen divorced too much. All about the weather and the weather. "How do you like today's rain, sir?" . "Great, sir." . And the smile of the cobra in addition, before a bite. How do bombs interfere? They will only be able to make the weather at the place of placement in the idiots who hung them on their necks in the event of a batch.

    Most recently, the resource published that the Americans accuse us of militarism due to the development of tactical nuclear weapons. Here are our answers on the diplomatic line. Nevertheless, Europeans are almost duplicitous, they are almost declaring themselves nuclear-free, they profess green energy, they defame a peaceful atom, and tactical nuclear bombs are kept quiet. And these bombs, given their caliber, can also be suspended on b2 — this is how tactical weapons can be used by a strategic carrier. Ah, START-START ... it is curious that looking for information about our tactical nuclear weapons is worth a lot of effort.

      "tactical nuclear weapons to seek information - great effort" ////

      It is perishable.
      Small (tactical) nuclear bombs are hard to contain.
      It is necessary to constantly update the filling.
      I do not think that the Americans store these bombs directly with the "stuffing." Hassle.

    Right! Gorbach caved in before the Americans and Europeans, did not pee any document, believed the words, so what? Consequences - NATO has increased and advanced towards our borders, the massive turmoil in Ukraine has only made things worse!

    We brought nuclear weapons to our national territory for two reasons - because of the collapse of the Warsaw Treaty Organization and the collapse of the Union. Prior to that, there were nuclear weapons in the GDR, and in Poland, and in Czechoslovakia, and in Hungary. As well as in all republics of the Soviet Union. This was not a “gesture of goodwill” on the part of the USSR and Russia, but a necessary measure.

    Quote: Going
    And they wouldn’t like to remove them from Turkey either.

    Turkey is one of the five countries in the territory of which American nuclear weapons are located. And recently, Turkey has been trying to raise the question of the presence of these ammunition on its territory.

    Just how can we smack them in the feces? Bilateral agreements have been concluded between the United States and each country regarding the deployment of such ammunition. We are out of business here. They can simply say: "It's none of your business and do not meddle with your advice.". And then we find ourselves trapped in the feces. We just ... t from head to toe.

    Dear strategists !!!!
    And you don’t want to ask for a change CubansDo they want to have Russian nuclear weapons on their territory ??
    Do not forget that now is not 1962, but 2017. Cubans are no longer the same. Revolutionary pathos is a thing of the past. Yes, and dreams of a world revolution - even Cubans do not have them. The last representative of this galaxy of organizers of the world revolution was the well-known Che.
    Why should they substitute now? The help that the USSR provided then, now Russia cannot provide. It is far from us and it is not known whether strategic nuclear weapons will be used against us, but in Cuba, the Americans can strike with the same nuclear charges, if it comes to this. And it is very likely that in a situation "will TMV start and strike on Russia or will it end in Cuba" - In a certain situation, we can merge Cuba. Sacrificing it, so as not to get a nuclear strike on their own.

    Quote: Viktor.N.Aleksandrov.

    Like any topic, the following must appear in it:
    1. Yellowstone Volcano
    2. Explosions at the bottom of the US coast.
    3. "Status-6"
    4. "Zircons"
    5. "Gauges" in container launchers.


    And this is repeated from time to time. The authors of such positions do not bother to search for information, or simply turn on their heads.

    Comrades !!!!! FORGET about container system CLUB. Forever desirable. Years old FIFTEEN-TWENTY BACK We first showed this system at an exhibition. It was stated that this system is for countries that CANNOT HAVE its full navy. It was then that placing this weapon system on a ship, with the flag of its naval forces raised, was at least some solution for countries that could not, due to their finances, buy a corvette, a frigate or a destroyer with missile weapons abroad.
    System ASSUMED the installation of such containers on a ship that automatically became an auxiliary ship of the Navy. The missiles of this container system are ANTI-PORTABLE. And our writers immediately have the wet dream of putting a missile with a range of 1500-2500 km on such a container ship and firing it along the enemy shore.

    You can put this dream of yours in ... Well, everyone will choose where to put it

    Rockets for the shore CAN NOT shoot from a range of 1500-2500 km from the ocean. For the reason that to control the flight path they need to adjust their flight at correction points that are on land. WE ARE NOT ABLE still create electronic maps of the water surface. They do not make sense. And having fired such a missile from a range of 400-500 km from the coast, you have every chance DO NOT GO AIMBecause DO NOT PASS THE CORRECTION AREA. This means that the accumulation of errors in the ANN will lead to the fact that your cruise missile OWN past the target.

    Further. Go to the company’s website that offered such a container system and read its annual reports, at least for the last 10-15 years. NO AND WASN'T ANY CONTRACT on the production of this system. In addition, do you think that our enemy is so "dumb" (according to Zadornov) that he will not be able to distinguish between military radar and civilian radar? And to start you need a radar. Otherwise, a "blank" worth almost a million will fly away unknown ....

    And last - a neutral flag container ship with weapons - THIS PIRATE SHIP with all the ensuing consequences. If you want this system to be on the ship and the ship not to be pirate - be so kind as to raise the state’s naval flag.

    In Taruts? Probably in the room where the staff lives or in the kitchen? Damn, what kind of nonsense ??? To store nuclear weapons, you need a protected room in compliance with TVR, and you are ready to place nuclear weapons anywhere. The main thing is whether these countries want to be suicide bombers by deploying our nuclear weapons. But it looks like you’re not going to ask them. They will be as consumables. And will these countries exist then, respected strategists - all of you seem to give a damn ....

    Quote: Nikolai R-PM
    More recently, the resource published that the Americans accuse us of militarism due to the development of tactical nuclear weapons ..

    It has always been and will be - to blame the enemy for all sins. The very idea voiced by the Americans as an accusation against us is the development of tactical nuclear weapons. A priori, they believe that these are low-power charges. And low-power charges are an opportunity to lower the threshold for using nuclear weapons. And in fact, the very idea of ​​deploying such tactical nuclear charges in order to increase the possibility of their use without options for escalating into a general nuclear war comes from the Americans.
    A few years ago, there was a “drain” on the subject in the foreign press. On behalf of American scientists, the option of striking a country without destroying it was considered. Now I can’t say in which of their journals and which figures were given specifically in the article, but the meaning was approximately as follows.
    Using charges of small and ultra small power, you can achieve benefits without destroying the infrastructure of the state. I will give an example. In a certain city “A” there is a tank factory, an aircraft building, metallurgical plant (for the production of aluminum) and, of course, a powerful power station.

    Based on modern criteria, it is necessary to strike a city (and, of course, factories) with several warheads with a capacity of 100-400 ct. And this is a zone of continuous destruction from 1,3 to 2 km, a strong zone - from 3,4 to 5,4 km, a fire zone - from 4,5 to 8 km. And a huge number of deaths, which will definitely cause the attacked side to react accordingly (if there is something to answer this side).

    But if we are talking about small and ultra-small charges, then explosions of warheads with a capacity of 0,1 kt or 0,01 kt on the one hand can put this plant out of action without huge damage and the number of victims of such an attack will not be tens or hundreds of thousands, and in hundreds, a maximum of a couple of thousand people. Now they are starting to blame us for creating such weapons. Although the very stigma in the gun. This is their idea. And by the way, the Congress in 1994-2004 and Barack Obama, as president, imposed a ban on the development and creation of these charges, which are called mini-nukes and micronukes

    Quote: Nikolai R-PM
    Nevertheless, Europeans are almost duplicitous, they are almost declaring themselves nuclear-free, they profess green energy, they defame a peaceful atom, and tactical nuclear bombs are kept quiet.

    I have not heard that one of the Europeans declared his country a nuclear-free zone. And few people ask them now. All these nuclear storage facilities were created back in the 60-70s, when Soviet nuclear weapons were in Europe. And now it’s unlikely that they can be removed from them. Unless the Americans themselves will withdraw such arsenals, such as from Greece. And whether Europeans want it or not - no one will ask them by and large

    Quote: Nikolai R-PM
    And these bombs, given their caliber, can also be suspended on b2 — this is how tactical weapons can be used by a strategic carrier ..

    You are not quite right. Those bombs that are in Europe are tactical. Strategic bombs are located in the United States. It’s just very often confused, because they have the same designation - B-61, and the whole difference is in the modifications

    Quote: Nikolai R-PM
    Ah, START-START ... it is curious that to seek information about our tactical nuclear weapons - great effort.

    Well, what do you want. I usually quote the “redone” Vladimir Mayakovsky, his words about poetry
    Poetry is the same production of radium
    In grams of production, in years of labor
    You harass a single word for
    Thousands of tons of verbal ore

    And replacing poetry with information, you get the same thing. In order to find something (serious, of course, not husk), one has to shovel dozens and hundreds of sources. And only then, something similar to the real situation begins to appear. In essence, this is how intelligence works. Information is collected and analyzed by crumbs, by grain, by hearing, or even by a shadow of hearing. Husk - discarded. But the "Grains" are gradually lining up in a mosaic
