Ukraine and the American missile defense

Ukraine and the American missile defenseThe entry of Crimea into Russia, which America and most of its allies, despite any international norms and even simple logic, consider illegal, and instability in the eastern and southern regions of Ukraine, focused on Russia and not wanting to obey the Fascist Government Square, can have the most direct influence on the implementation of the White House’s plans for the development of the European echelon of the American anti-missile defense system. According to experts of the independent American Heritage Foundation (Heritage Foundation), which is one of the Pentagon’s brain trusts and is developing recommendations on military construction issues, this situation requires a thorough review of the approaches of the US military-political leadership to the construction of a European missile defense system (EuroMAN).


According to the Foundation’s specialists, the White House’s military policy in the current circumstances does not provide a strategic missile balance with the Russian Federation. In addition, the Kremlin, according to American analysts, clearly demonstrates its readiness to use force against threats arising on the state borders of Russia, and when holding actions to counteract America’s national interests by military means. In this regard, American experts believe that Washington needs to further expand its missile defense system to ensure the protection of America, its allies and partners.

RUSSIAN THREATS AND AMERICAN POLICY OF MISSILE DEFENSE

Russia is currently making the greatest efforts to develop its strategic nuclear forces (SNF) since the end of the Cold War. In addition, in accordance with the plans of the Kremlin, in the next six years about 55 billion will be spent on improving missile and air defense systems. While the United States plans to spend only 8 billion on these purposes for these purposes.

Currently, according to American experts, more than 1400 warheads have been installed on intercontinental ballistic missiles of the Russian strategic nuclear forces. Each of these missiles can reach US territory in 33 minutes. The Russian Ministry of Defense also continues to carry out measures for the modernization of medium-range ballistic missiles, which, according to the White House administration, is a violation of the bilateral “Treaty on the Prohibition of Ballistic Missiles of Medium and Small-Range”, which Moscow and Washington signed in 1987 year. These missiles, according to American experts, pose a very significant threat to the security of the allies and partners of the United States in Europe.

The Treaty on the Elimination of Intermediate-Range and Shorter-Range Missiles imposed a ban on all American and Soviet ballistic and cruise ground-based missiles with a range from 500 to 5500 kilometers. When the cut-off period for the 1991 was over in June, 846 American and 1846 Soviet missiles were destroyed along with their launchers and other equipment. Strict controls over the implementation of the clauses of this agreement formed the basis of the provisions included in the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START-1) of 1991.

In 2009, the White House administration, with the goal of improving relations with Moscow, canceled George Bush’s two-stage plan to deploy anti-missile systems in Poland and to deploy a modern X-band radar station in the Czech Republic. This station detects, escorts, recognizes and allocates attacking targets, selects combat units comprising elements of a complex ballistic target, and also targets missiles at selected objects that are real targets to be destroyed.

In exchange for Bush’s plan to create a European missile defense system, the American military-political leadership proposed a four-stage plan for the development and deployment of radar and missile defense system launchers, called the European Phased Adaptive Approach (EPAA).

The decision to create a European missile defense was taken by members of the NATO bloc in November 2010 at the Lisbon summit. The creation of this system is scheduled for completion in the 2020 year. The first phase of this plan was actually completed when, in the Mediterranean, the American cruiser Monterrey, armed with the Aegis missile defense system and interceptor missiles, took up combat duty.

At the second stage of the implementation of this plan, which is to be completed in 2015, anti-missile radar will be installed in Turkey and Bulgaria. In addition, during this period, supplies of anti-aircraft missile systems THAAD to the theater, which are designed to intercept the head parts of ballistic missiles at the final stage of the middle section of the flight trajectory and when approaching the target, should begin in the US Army. These complexes will allow, in the opinion of the American leadership, to ensure the protection of US troops and their allies, as well as cities and important objects from ballistic missiles of both short range and long range.

All activities of the third stage should be completed by the end of 2018. At this stage, it is planned to deploy a ground-based version of the Aegis system equipment in Poland and complete the modification of this system in Romania, which, according to the Pentagon, will make it possible to monitor almost the entire territory of Europe. At this stage, the United States also intends to deploy the PTSS (Precision Tracking Space System) and the airborne infrared detection system ABIR (Airborne Infrared). These systems, according to American experts, will be able to simultaneously track up to several hundred missiles. In addition, the number of ships with the Aegis system in the combat structure of the American fleet should increase to 43 units.

In the fourth stage of Washington’s missile plan, which was to be fully completed in 2020, the deployment of SM-3 Block IIB interceptors capable of intercepting short and medium-range ballistic missiles and intercontinental ballistic missiles was proposed. However, last year the White House, for political and economic reasons, canceled the practical implementation of this stage.

NEW MISSING REALITIES IN EUROPE

The actions of Russia in Ukraine and their geopolitical implications, say American experts, require new assessments of plans for building a European missile defense system, a study of issues for its further improvement and the study of the expansion of its functionality. According to US military and civilian specialists, deploying an X-band radar station in Europe can significantly increase the defenses of allies and partners of the United States in Europe and the Middle East, and also provide a higher level of protection for the US against missile strikes that can be inflicted on their continental part.

The actions of the Kremlin at the present stage, the American experts emphasize, also point to the extreme importance of maintaining the necessary funding for the development programs and systems of the American missile defense system. At present, the budget of the Department of Defense Missile Defense Department of the United States, which is responsible for the creation and procurement of appropriate systems and tools to combat the nuclear threat, is less than 1,5% of all allocations allocated to the Pentagon for military construction. Considering how much damage to material and human resources can be caused to America by nuclear missile strikes by potential adversaries on its territory, investments in the missile defense system are considered by American military analysts to be, at the present stage, highly effective.

In their opinion, the United States first of all needs to create a multi-level, effective and efficient anti-missile defense system capable of hitting all ballistic missiles flying towards the US, including the reflection of salvo-nuclear strikes that Russia can inflict on US territory. If necessary, the optimal use of financial resources in the face of budgetary constraints is, according to American military experts, space-based interceptor missiles the most effective means of solving missile defense tasks.

It should be noted here that a year and a half ago, at the Moscow ABM conference, then General of the Army Nikolai Makarov, who held the post of Chief of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, said that Russia could decide on pre-emptive strikes on European missile defense facilities. “Given the destabilizing nature of the missile defense system, namely, creating the illusion of causing an unpunished disarming strike, the decision to proactively use existing means of destruction will be made during a period of aggravation of the situation,” said Army General Makarov.

The next step in improving the European missile defense system should be the deployment in one of the NATO countries of an X-band radar station, which was previously supposed to be deployed in the Czech Republic. This radar, allegedly, will significantly expand the capabilities of the American continental missile defense system.

According to American experts, Washington should officially announce to Moscow that “strategic stability” is no longer the main factor in the development of Russian-American relations, since Russia is very actively intensifying the processes of modernizing its nuclear weapons and increasing funding for programs to develop anti-missile defense technologies. At the same time, the leadership of the White House, the same experts believe, should officially indicate to the Kremlin the exclusively defensive nature of its strategic nuclear forces, and also note the crucial role that the missile defense system plays in implementing this approach.

Experts of the Heritage Foundation believe that the deterioration of Russia's relations with Ukraine and the separation of the Crimea from it will require a fundamental change in the White House’s approaches to the development of a European anti-missile defense system. They emphasize the fact that if the White House does not pay enough attention to the growing threat from the Russian Federation, America may subsequently pay an exorbitant price for the inadequate attitude of the federal government and lawmakers to the current growth processes of the Russian military potential and increasing the aggressiveness of the Kremlin leaders.

PARLIAMENTARIANS, FORMER MILITARY AND OTHER ABOUT EUROPRO

Some leading US parliamentarians, retired high-ranking military officials and some former political figures also adhere to the opinions of the American Foundation specialists. All of them suggest that the current White House administration should tighten its stance towards Russia and revise its attitude to the canceled plans to build anti-ballistic missile defense facilities in Poland and the Czech Republic.

In particular, the former well-known politician Dick Cheney told representatives of the American media in March of this year that “there are military options for solving the Ukrainian problem without bringing troops into the Crimea.”

“We can go back and restore the missile defense development program, which was closed. This program was to be implemented in Poland and the Czech Republic. Obama canceled it to appease Vladimir Putin, ”said Dick Cheney. Recall that this program was adopted during the reign of President George W. Bush, when Cheney himself served as vice president in the administration of the White House and was one of the main initiators of this program.

Coastal missile defense system "Aegis" is capable of providing with high efficiency to counter regional missile threatsThe construction of mine launchers for missile defense interceptor missiles almost immediately after the start of work in 2009 was discontinued. This was due to the fact that US President Barack Obama sought to improve relations with the Russian leadership, which categorically objected to the deployment of these objects of the American anti-missile defense system near the borders of the Russian Federation. The resulting improvement in relations between the United States and Russia allowed the White House in 2010 to conclude a new bilateral “Treaty on the Reduction and Limitation of Strategic Offensive Arms”, called START-3. This treaty provided for the reduction of intercontinental ballistic missiles, their launch systems and the number of combat units in service with both states.

Chairman of the Budget Committee of the House of Representatives of the American Congress, Republican Paul Ryan, speaking with Cheney to reporters, also said that in the light of Ukrainian events, Washington needs to thoroughly review its missile defense policy in Europe again.

“I believe that we just need to re-consider the program for building missile defense, told the congressman told reporters. - In my opinion, if President Obama himself decides to consider this program again, this will be a very good signal. I think that you should show in soft tones to the American and world public that the revision of plans to build a missile defense system is nothing more than a naive wishful thinking. ”

The official representative of the Department of Defense Missile Defense Department of the United States, Rick Lehner, told the press that the White House, instead of the previous plan for the construction of ground-based missile defense systems, developed a plan for the phased deployment of the Aegis sea-based radar system in the offshore areas adjacent to Romania and Poland. this system in the territories of the specified countries in 2015 and in 2018. He did not touch on the various opinions of experts on this plan, but noted that work on the construction of facilities of the land variant of the Aegis system in Romania had already begun. Lehner also officially announced that the coastal version of this system will be ready for use by the end of 2015. According to him, in the next three to four months, tests of this missile defense system will be held in Hawaii. In the Romanian version of the Aegis system, SM-3 IB interceptor missiles will be used, and from Poland, intercontinental enemy ballistic missiles will be destroyed by SM-3 IIA missiles, which have a greater range and greater power than their predecessors, SM-3 IB missiles.

As Lehner stressed, unlike SM-3 missiles, interceptor missile silos, which were planned to be deployed in Poland, are capable of destroying intercontinental ballistic missiles that are in space in the middle of their flight path. "These missiles are designed to destroy intercontinental ballistic missiles that can appear in Iran and North Korea, while Ajis coastal missiles can only hit short-range and medium-range ballistic missiles," said the US Defense Department’s Missile Defense Department spokesman.

In turn, the vice-president of the Lexington Institute, Dr. Daniel Gore, notes that mine-based interceptor missiles are capable of destroying enemy intercontinental ballistic missiles flying at a speed of more than 27 thousand km / h. In his opinion, the White House’s ban on the construction of missile defense installations in Poland was due to many factors. First of all, this was dictated by the need to improve relations with Russia and the signing of the START-3 agreement. Secondly, the experts of the presidential administration believed that the coastal system "Aegis" is fully capable of providing resistance to regional missile threats. To a certain extent, the decision to stop the construction of mine installations was due to the conviction of Washington experts that in the near future, Tehran is simply not able to create an intercontinental ballistic missile to attack the United States and will only be armed with ballistic missiles that can only threaten European countries NATO and the states of the Middle East. According to the White House administration, the missile defense of the continental US will be fully supported by missile defense systems based in Alaska and in California. In particular, last year the Pentagon announced that the number of mine installations at these missile defense bases would soon increase from 33 to 44 units.

EVIL OFFER

Gore also noted that the White House needs to resume the research and development program for the development of the SM-3 IIB rocket, which will be able to destroy intercontinental ballistic missiles of various capacities. This program was closed "in favor of Russian President Vladimir Putin," since the Kremlin was categorically opposed to creating a missile defense system in Europe.

Interestingly, recently the ambassador of Ukraine in Minsk, Mikhail Yezhel, said: the possibility of deploying an American missile defense system in Ukraine in exchange for receiving financial aid from the United States to Kiev is the subject of negotiations that may be held between Kiev and Washington in the near future. However, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, summing up the talks with his Spanish counterpart, José Manuel Garcia-Margallo, 3 of April of this year. stressed that the statements about the possibility of deploying the US missile defense system in Ukraine are speculation. “I have not heard this statement, but if this is so, then we see another example of how, with the connivance of our Western partners, those who now sit in the Verkhovna Rada try to speculate on the relations between the Russian Federation and the West, try to aggravate these relations, hoping to catch something in the muddy water, ”the ITAR-TASS news agency quoted the minister as saying. Lavrov called this policy of the Ukrainian authorities "extremely frivolous" and expressed the hope that Russia's western colleagues "understand this entire game perfectly well."

True, in January of this year, NATO Deputy Secretary General Alexander Vershbow invited Russia to join the construction of a NATO missile defense system in Europe. This step, he said, could help improve the security of Russia and NATO countries. “I still believe that our cooperation on missile defense can change the rules of the game in Russia-NATO relations,” said Vershbow in his speech at the University of Tel Aviv. “I still hope that Russia can join us in this venture, thereby enhancing its security and that of the NATO countries,” the Deputy Secretary General of the North Atlantic Alliance said, noting also that “if this opportunity is missed, NATO will continue to develop those opportunities that it considers necessary in order to counter the growing threat of rocket ".

OBJECTIVES, COSTS AND PRELIMINARY RESULTS OF THE BROWN REVOLUTION

A coup d'état in Ukraine organized by the United States and the European Union, directly involving CIA officials, representatives of the US State Department and members of non-governmental organizations, cost 5 billion dollars to Washington in a speech at the National Press Club in Washington 13 December last year, announced the US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland. However, according to Russian and foreign experts, this amount is ten times less than America, the European Union and numerous foreign funds spent on destabilizing the situation in Ukraine and on coming to power of brown representatives of Ukrainian society. In addition, experts believe that the United States has already earned about 500 billion dollars on the New Orange Revolution, which is 100 times the expenditures of the federal treasury, although few can say exactly what America’s revenues are in that amount.

The main purpose of this action of America, its NATO and EU allies, is believed to have been the destruction of Ukraine’s sovereignty, the subordination of its government to Washington and Brussels and the deployment of new Pentagon military bases near the borders of Russia, which is in line with the concept of forward basing that is actively implemented by the US military. . The US military bases, Russian experts say, could then approach the borders of Russia by almost a thousand kilometers.

However, the United States has not yet achieved the desired result. The entry of the Crimea and Sevastopol into the Russian Federation became a bone in the throat of the White House administration and the NATO leadership. Now, US Navy warships armed with the Aegis multifunctional combat information and control system will not be able to be based in Sevastopol if necessary, as the Americans expected, and the military potential of Crimea from the Russian side will now be significantly increased. Recently, at a conference call at the National Center for Defense Management, Russian Defense Minister General of the Army Sergei Shoigu stated that the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces is already developing a military action plan for the period up to 2020 to ensure the security of the Russian Federation in the Crimean Federal District.

True, it should be noted here that Washington, not only in the economic and political, but also in the military sense, nevertheless managed to achieve certain positive results for itself. In particular, the leadership of Ukraine has frozen military-technical cooperation with Russia, which in a number of areas, primarily in rocketry, space and production aviation engines, was very voluminous, significant and important for both sides. And although this may to some extent weaken the military potential of the Russian Federation, but not to the extent that the United States would like it. The Russian leadership is already taking measures to eliminate the consequences of the decision of the Ukrainian administration, and in the near future the Russian defense-industrial complex will be able to independently solve the tasks that were previously assigned to the Ukrainian defense industry. But the latter will receive such a serious blow from this decision that it is unlikely to be able to recover. Ultimately, this will further exacerbate the economic crisis and increase social tension in the country.

In conclusion, it should be noted that the deployment of the US missile defense system in Europe is one of the most important and difficult problems in relations between the Kremlin and the White House. But neither Washington nor the Pentagon has yet commented on the wishes of some politicians and legislators on changing plans to build missile defense systems in Europe. What steps will be taken by American politicians and the military in this direction in connection with the changing situation in Ukraine and the inclusion of Crimea in the Russian Federation, only time will tell.

      Well, the apple did not say, because many technologies are stupidly still in the bud of development and at least 5 years will pass when we create engines and other components. But in the army, cars are needed now.
      Regarding industry, yes, I agree, if their plants do not move to the territory of the Russian Federation, you can safely close. For at least 5 years, this pack will be in power if Ukraine does not fall apart into 2 parts, because the Southeast is mostly industrial, and unemployment will be terrible there.

        I would be glad to join your optimism, but ....
        To understand the mortal danger for RUSSIA, the deployment of missile defense systems on the territory of Ukraine near our borders or just in Crimea .... look at the performance characteristics of US missile defense systems. And you will see that the SM - 3 missile defense systems, calmly ... without the fuss and fears that they will be shot down by our anti-ballistic missiles, ALL OUR ICBMs and OTP WILL BE PUNCHED PRACTICALLY AT START. At this stage, the speed of the missiles is still low ... the torch brightness from running engines is maximum, the missile defense missile defense program still does not work (hunters will understand and agree with me) .... It turns out to be an elementary simple target ... just detect and shoot down everything that is running up to the Urals! And they will bring down! And then it is not necessary in our direction to aMerams and launch their ICBMs ... for self-detonation of our downed ICBMs will simply burn everything and everyone! We are not yet able to prevent the US missile defense against our ICBMs.
        And the conclusions on the degree of foresight of V. PUTIN regarding the Crimea and the initiation of the upsurge of the masses against the American sixes of the new Kiev government, ready to give its territory to the Amer and DEGREE OF FURY of the US leadership after the apparent failure of your plans, DO IT YOURSELF.

          I'm certainly not special in the Strategic Rocket Forces, and even more so in the pro, but I think that this is a scarecrow. A simple example of the Strategic Missile Forces consists of three armies of eight divisions. Take, for example, Novosibirsk or Irkutsk, the distance from the western borders is 7-9 tons km. The main complex is rt-2pm poplar. Operating time of the first stage (accelerated section) 60 s. Further, the track goes over the North Pole where there is no and will not. Now we consider the speed with which the anti-missile should fly. And we think whether the rocket can fly at such a speed. I think that it is more dangerous and was no longer created for the MBR, but for operational-tactical missiles, and possibly for medium-range missiles after Russia's possible withdrawal from the treaty. If not right, correct.

      The truth is usually somewhere in the middle ... Now we can only talk about the POTENTIAL danger of the SM-3 block IIA missile defense for our ICBMs, but in the future this potential danger may turn into real and you need to be prepared for this. What is actually being done now, especially in terms of implementing new combat equipment for missiles based on R&D results of the late 80s that Gorbachev closed and weapons based on new physical principles. If you quote the same Rogozin.

    It may not be profitable for Russia at this stage to completely abandon the dollar, but bring its global significance to that border when it remains only a regional currency.

    Strategic submarines armed with hydrogen weapons and keeping watch on the expanses of the ocean are capable of discouraging testing our defenses for strength. The West will never give up its plans to attack Russia first. All NATO military construction is proof of this. They, like a pack of hyenas, are carefully waiting for us to turn to his back. The strategic nuclear weapons of Russia are what protected us from immediate aggression at the time when Russia changed the political course and began building a new state. The strategic nuclear weapons are now our only shield. The United States is obviously ready to sacrifice even Europe to fulfill its plan for a lightning fast nuclear war. Strategic nuclear weapons it is extremely necessary for Russia, moreover, it must be improved in accordance with the challenge of the time.

    To prevent the emergence of an American missile defense system in Ukraine, one must take full control of the territory of Ukraine. I don't give a damn about sanctions. When the missile defense system is near, we won’t have time to sneeze, how such damage will be done to us that the sanctions taken together will seem such a trifle, such a minuscule, that there will no longer be any regrets about what we did not do in Ukraine.

    I read somewhere that our missiles fly both through the North Pole, and through the South Pole, and from the waters of the Pacific and Atlantic Ocean from submarines. Therefore, all this cataphony with missile defense in Europe is not worth a damn. Another cut of money by interested persons under horror stories about terrible Russia. Today's ballistic missiles have guaranteed means of breaking through any missile defense system, which is much cheaper.
    Further, Europe borders with us, it will be unprofitable to spend money on a hotbed of debauchery with Ballistic missiles. Even assuming a military conflict, tactical delivery vehicles are much preferable to strategic ones. As a result, we have clowns who were cured of the fear of fear, who believe that, having closed themselves in the toilet, they will be saved from the blow of the housebreaker.
    And since people are disaccustomed to think with their brains, these maneuvers are successful: they invented an enemy, said they offered protection from the enemy, sawed the money, put useless toys and everyone is happy. People by the fact that they are "protected", troublemakers - by profit. And only we laugh and pretend that we are worried. We are concerned about the destruction of our foundations within our borders, not some ghostly, useless missile defense system.
    This is just my opinion.

      The foundations undoubtedly bother us. But they are in our power and ability to influence the situation. Their destruction does not bring instant death to millions of fellow citizens. Yes, this is bad, but not deadly in the short term.
      But the missile defense system gives inspirational hopes of the possibility to inflict Moscow State University with impunity on Russia. And then forced to surrender in view of the clear advantage of the aggressor. That is why our leadership is so persistently fighting for not deploying the Euro missile defense system at our borders.
      Secondly, medium-range strike missiles can be loaded into silos for heavy anti-missiles. After all, no one will open TPK to you and show you WHAT our "overseas partners" have loaded into it. And the flight time of such a rocket leaves little chance of an adequate response to counter the first disarming strike in the MSU concept. That's what the Yankees are counting on.

        I agree with you. I just expressed the main idea that it’s not a missile defense. But the point is to advance the borders of the enemy close to ours. And not the last role is played by the fears imposed on the Western aborigines by those in power. It's me, but you understand the real background to this progress. And many need to chew and even put it in their mouths (that is, vice versa). hi

    True, in January of this year, NATO Deputy Secretary General Alexander Vershbow invited Russia to join the construction of a NATO missile defense system in Europe. This step, he said, could help improve the security of Russia and NATO countries. “I still believe that our cooperation on missile defense can change the rules of the game in Russia-NATO relations,” said Vershbow in his speech at the University of Tel Aviv. “I still hope that Russia can join us in this venture, thereby enhancing its security and that of the NATO countries,” the Deputy Secretary General of the North Atlantic Alliance said, noting also that “if this opportunity is missed, NATO will continue to develop those opportunities that it considers necessary in order to counter the growing threat of rocket ".

    2. The strategy does not stand still. To destroy the "america" ​​civilization, 1200-1500 precision weapons (CR) are enough. Now we have 400-500 in a salvo. (Until the second, you need to burn the time of reloading and retargeting. But the missile cruiser Nakhimov, which is part of the Russian Navy in 2018, has a salvo of 154 CR. Considering the armor belt and interference, it will make 2 volleys. 2/3 of America in the Stone Age. Missile defense is not will help.

    As Lehner emphasized, unlike SM-3 missiles, mine interceptor missiles, which were planned to be deployed in Poland, are capable of destroying intercontinental ballistic missiles that are in space in the middle of their flight path.

    The White House needs to resume the research and development program to create the SM-3 IIB missile, which will be able to destroy intercontinental ballistic missiles of various power

    Under conditions when the ground distance from the interceptor to the mine with ICBMs is not less than 300 km and the flight path of ICBMs to the side of the interceptor’s starting position, even with simultaneous launch, the interceptor will not be able to reach the ICBMs at the outcrop under any circumstances, it simply will not have enough speed , and then the range. That’s why it’s impossible to seriously argue, which means that the big, nasty chief is lying, as before, when they were more and more fond of writing about the ability of interceptors to destroy missile warheads, with kinetic interception and even such as shot down a satellite, but now they have changed the rhetoric, this is understandable, a rotating warhead it is impossible to hit with kinetic interception, in any case the chances are scanty, therefore they started singing about intercepting the launch rockets themselves, where the dimensions of the interceptors again do not provide the necessary speed and range for this. The conclusion is simple, they have no chance, when using the interceptors in this way and having no better option, they settled on the usual lies and returned to the old version of the 80 years of the Pershing deployment, the first strike and the flight time, in this case the interceptor becomes a short-range missile and flying along ballistic trajectory increases its range in two.
