“Undoubtedly, the work on improving the means of overcoming the missile defense by our ICBMs is actively carried out at the present time. This is due to the fact that the United States does not stop at what has been achieved and continue to improve its missile defense system, including with the deployment of its elements in Europe, ”said the colonel-general.
According to him, "when developing new missile systems, special attention is paid to the problem of overcoming the missile defense system."
“The new missile systems of the Strategic Missile Forces have increased capabilities to overcome the existing and promising global missile defense system. This is achieved both by reducing the section for overclocking the ICBM, and by means of new types of combat equipment with an unpredictable flight trajectory, and due to new means of overcoming missile defense, "told Karakaev.
Therefore, despite the fact that the United States periodically strengthens the European missile defense segment, this does not reduce the combat capabilities of the Strategic Missile Forces.
“Threats for the Strategic Missile Forces by the European missile defense segment are limited and currently do not lead to a critical reduction in the combat capabilities of the troops,” the general said.
