EuroPRO is not against Martians

29
This week, US Assistant Secretary of State for Arms Control Frank Rose explained to the world community that the European missile defense system is “not capable” of posing a threat to Russia. Russian experts have a different opinion. Yevgeny Lukyanov, Deputy Secretary of the Security Council of the Russian Federation, believes that US missile defense facilities in Europe can be used to deploy offensive weapons, including cruise missiles with nuclear warheads.




12 April Agency Interfax led a statement by Assistant Secretary of State for Arms Control Frank Rose.

In his opinion, the EuroMD system cannot pose a threat to Russia for technical reasons.

“Both the United States and NATO clearly explained that the American elements of the missile defense system being built by NATO in Europe were not designed to threaten the Russian deterrent forces. It (the EUROPRO system) is not capable of presenting such a threat, ”the agency quoted an official.

The diplomat also noted that over the past years, the US and NATO "have repeatedly explained this to the Russian side."

Recall that Moscow has long, since 2011, insisted on written assurances from the United States of nondirection against the said ABM system promoted by the Americans against the Russian Federation. In particular, Foreign Minister S. Lavrov spoke about this when he mentioned the guarantees “clear and on paper.”

However, political bosses from Washington did not intend and are not going to give written guarantees to the Kremlin. The frank American Mr. Michael McFaul, who once declared that the White House would not give Russia legal guarantees on any restriction of the European missile defense system, spoke directly about this.

Also recall that the United States recently again identified Russia as a list of "major threats" to national security. In addition, the Pentagon military asked for three billion budget dollars to "defend the Allies in Europe," which was supported by the argument about the need to "contain Russia". Last year, politicians and military from the United States more than once called Russia "enemy number one," and Hillary Clinton, now rushing for president, called Vladimir Putin "the new Hitler."

Statements by US Assistant Secretary of State for Arms Control, Frank Rose, about the European missile defense system caused the reaction of politicians and the expert community in Russia.

US missile defense facilities in Europe can be used to deploy offensive weapons, including cruise missiles with a nuclear warhead, which creates a direct threat to Russia's security, explained Interfax in Tashkent, Deputy Secretary of the Security Council of the Russian Federation Yevgeny Lukyanov.

“Launchers in the missile defense system in Romania and Poland will be able to launch both anti-missiles for the destruction of our ballistic missiles and cruise missiles. And this is already offensive weaponwhich can be supplied with nuclear warheads, ”the agency quotes him.

“For us, this is a clear threat and a direct danger,” he added.

According to Lukyanov, the deployment of a missile defense system near the borders of the Russian Federation is "a direct consequence of broken promises, simply a deception that NATO will not expand to the east."

As the expert of the Institute of Socio-Economic and Political Studies, Aleksey Zudin, noted, since the beginning of the deployment of missile defense in Europe, the United States did not want to give Russia guarantees using diplomatic nods, and now Washington has thrown off the mask and openly showed its intentions. “However, this position has not yet been voiced publicly. Any nonsense in the psaki style was voiced - such as the fact that EuroPRO is directed against the Martians, ”said the expert. Reedus.

Rose’s revelations revealed the brutal grin of American imperialism. Washington has rejected shame most likely because it sees no more reasons to “flirt” with Moscow. Strengthening Russia's position is forcing Americans to abandon ambiguous practice. “In today's arguments of Rose, we did not hear anything new, Russia knew about it from the very beginning. But on the other hand, the US allies in NATO heard what they wanted: that the United States would hold back Russia, ”said Zudin.

Whether the White House is planning to return to plans to build a missile defense system in Europe and whether it intends to build tactical nuclear weapons there, US Secretary of State Rose Gotemeller told Interfax correspondent Ksenia Baygarova. Material published in the newspaper. Kommersant.

To the question “Is it planned to restore the fourth phase of the European missile defense system (which provided for the deployment of the super-modern SM-3 Block IIB interceptors in Romania and Poland)?” A direct answer was received:

"In no case. We made a firm decision on the European phased adaptive approach (to the creation of the American segment of the missile defense system in Europe. - Note. "Kommersant"). Back in 2013, we decided that the fourth phase was not required, and we canceled it. ”


As for tactical nuclear weapons in Europe, which the United States allegedly intends to increase there, Gotemeller undertook to clarify the situation.

It turned out the following: Washington plans to "replace several types of the B61 nuclear bomb with a single B61-12 armament standard." B61-12 must undergo a program to increase service life - in order to replace obsolete non-nuclear weapons components. At the same time, the military potential of B61-12 will not increase, but will be equivalent to the potential of the old B61 species.

In addition, the number of American weapons in Europe will not increase, but rather decline. The United States will have the opportunity to significantly reduce the number of bombs in its nuclear arsenal, Gotemeller explained.

Recall in conclusion that the anti-missile defense system deployed in Europe at one time was due to the need to protect Europe from Iran’s likely missile attacks. Long before the lifting of sanctions on Iran, but with the beginning of a new cold war with Russia, American politicians and military, who spoke about European missile defense, stopped mentioning Iran.

The creation of EuroPRO is planned to be completed by 2018. Today - and Rose's words are an additional confirmation of this - the United States no longer conceals that the European missile defense itself, and the possible new expenditure on troops in the EU countries, and the strengthening of heavy brigades in Europe are "addressed" to Russia. Because of the Ukrainian crisis, Russia is considered the “aggressor” and one of the main “threats” to the national security of the United States and its allies. Barack Obama, by virtue of his position as a “peacemaker,” has repeatedly denied the new round of the Cold War, but facts eloquently indicate the opposite. The cold war is on, and it started, like its previous stage, not by Moscow.

EUROPRO is not against the Martians - Psaki would not have doubted this now.

      And what has to do with the Martians, when a terrible force is in the EU. Refugees from BV, Libya, are going to use water and gas pipes, called "Qassam", to shell the entire territory of North America and Western Europe.

        America has long explained to the whole world that missile defense in Poland, for example, is aimed against Iran. Well, like Iran, it will hit missiles in America, and it will crash them from Poland ...

        Only we, unlike the Americans, taught geography at school. And our fathers measured geography from Moscow to Berlin with kirzachs. And our grandchildren are not as good as we are, but they know about geography. Therefore, only Americans can believe in American geographic turbulence ....

        ..in this direction, the United States went further..talked actively in addition to creating an integrated missile defense and air defense system in Europe and an integrated missile defense and air defense system..in the Asia-Pacific region..and in 2020 a unified missile defense system (IAMD) 2020 vision)) .. (IS ABM defense) In the Asia-Pacific region, studies answered 4 questions:
        (1) What are the strategic and tactical objectives of the United States Missile Defense (BMDS) in the Asia-Pacific region?
        (2) How does BMDS fit into the Integrated Air and Missile Defense (IAMD) 2020 vision?
        (3) What role can the US regional allies play in the context of a single missile defense and air defense system in the region and the system as a whole?

      "European missile defense is not against the Martians" - Yolki sticks! And we thought against Iran and North Korea. what
      Well then, do not be surprised that the "Caliber" hit 300 km until the end of last year. And the "Eskander" shoots only 500 km so far. repeat

        "European missile defense is not against the Martians"
        "from the above, the following conclusions follow:
        1. We must admit that the threat of using ballistic missiles with nuclear weapons or other means of mass destruction is REAL., It is growing and it does not yet have an adequate response.
        ...
        5. The only way to achieve this is to create a global missile defense system "" "

      If NATO is an instrument for the neocolonization of Europe, then their missile defense is an instrument for the survival of NATO itself. Otherwise, the existence of the alliance becomes meaningless due to the absence of an enemy. Even if he is not there, then the enemy must be invented (appointed). At the same time, it is becoming more and more obvious that NATO's swan song is inevitably coming to an end.

      It would be better if our leadership would explain to the Europeans that in the event of a mess, you would be destroyed first. And then let them think whether they need it or not.

      Not repeatedly explained, but "galimos" inspired and imposed. But despite their worldwide exclusiveness, they suddenly stumbled upon the inclinations of a mind superior to their own, as evidenced by the cases of recent cases. belay Hysteria: "threat number 1 !!!" bully

    And the truth is being told. Just do not say that this is also a cover for the aggression forces of NATO and the United States.
    For a long time, since 2011, Moscow has insisted on written guarantees from the United States that the mentioned missile defense system promoted by the Americans is not directed against the Russian Federation

    It is simply amazing that they do not give us guarantees. After all, these guarantees cost no more than the paper on which they are fixed. The USA will always find an excuse for its actions. As the worst thing - they can call Psaki from vacation.

    Blah blah blah, no matter how self-complacent they were with some guarantees, but these mattresses surrounded Russia and not vice versa. The rotten sovereign leaders surrendered everything that could be surrendered to the interests of mattresses, burning them in hell forever

    Of course, we will not offend the Martians either, since they have more trust than Americans.
    Just in case of what, it’s necessary to burn out the European missile defense system together with those who allowed it to be placed there, and we’ll shoot at the initiators in parallel. Settling over the ocean will not work.

    We will never be good for them. Now Russia is a threat, primarily for trans-national corporations. They cannot start a world war and stay away. And to fight directly the gut is thin. Therefore, provocations will be constant.
    By the way, combat drones incapacitating the electronics of our missiles before launch, does anyone remind SDI?

    Everyone is crying and crying our leaders about the expansion of NATO. Even written guarantees are requested. They behave like whiners and wimps. As if in 41, Hitler's written guarantees prevented an attack on the USSR. I hope Shoigu has a plan indicating the objects of the missile defense system to strike in the right case ... and not only the missile defense facilities ..

    Each of the host countries should now clearly know that it will not be covered by a passing cloud, but by a concrete direct strike. More precisely, every resident who voted for Euro-missile defense should know about it, and in addition to these citizens, everyone who did not vote.
    Yes, by the way, if at least one of the Euro-dwarf countries subscribes to the American pie, then the rest - be so kind as to get territory first, and then show off and ambition.
