State Department: European missile defense is not able to harm the potential of Russia


According to the agency, “the system is a key element of the second stage of development of the European component of the American missile defense system”.

Romanian Prime Minister Dacian Ciolos said recently that “Romania from the very beginning supported the alliance’s efforts in the area of ​​missile defense based on the principles of the indivisibility of security and allied solidarity.”

In turn, US Assistant Secretary of State Frank Rose said at a press conference in Bucharest that "the PRSP system deployed in Europe is not capable of undermining Russia's strategic deterrent potential."

“Russia has repeatedly expressed concern that the defenses of the United States and NATO are directed against it and pose a threat to its strategic nuclear deterrent. Nothing is far from the truth, ”Rose quotes. RIA News.

According to him, “the missile interception system, deployed at the Deveselu Romanian base, will help NATO countries in the face of the threat of short- and medium-range ballistic missiles coming from, in particular, from the Middle East.”

It "is directed against the threat from ballistic missiles outside the Euro-Atlantic region, and the United States has repeatedly explained this to Russia over the years," Rose said.

“The missile defense system is one of the elements of the alliance’s spectrum of capabilities to counter threats from the arc of instability, which is southeast of the bloc,” added US Ambassador to NATO Douglas Lut.

    If you believe the State Department, then we ourselves are the most terrible enemies wassat
    “The missile interception system deployed at Deveselu’s Romanian base will help NATO countries face the threat of short- and medium-range ballistic missiles, emanating, in particular, from the Middle East” - it also did not look at the map request
    "The missile defense system is one of the elements of the spectrum of capabilities of the alliance for countering threats from the" arc of instability ", which is located to the southeast of the bloc" - it turns out that they counteract themselves fool
    They themselves created this "arc of instability", and now they "fight" with it and "defend" from it wassat

      Yes, let them spend on their missile defense.
      There is little to wait. Sarmat and S-500 will appear on duty.
      This is the whole conversation.

            Unfortunately, now we can only bite our elbows about Cuba. They completely believed us and were ready for everything for us. Great people and pure people ... We betrayed them and abandoned them in the 90s, excuses that it was hard for us too - just excuses, meanly throwing friends even when it's hard for you. The Cubans are a noble people, but there will never be a previous relationship, it’s like putting up with a person who has broken your hands - you can forgive, but you won’t get a hug ...

              strategic partnership in security matters then and today implies the presence of a common enemy. And such an enemy for Cuba and the USSR, and now for the Russian Federation is - "US policy." I want to emphasize - not the state itself, but the specific policy of those in power, and the inhabitants of this country themselves have nothing to do with it ...


              As mentioned above, a new round of relations between the Russian Federation and Cuba falls on the reign of the current President of the Russian Federation - Vladimir Putin. On July 12, 2014, Vladimir Putin visited Cuba as part of a trip to Latin America and met with Chairman of the Council of Ministers of Cuba Raul Castro. Before that, he wrote off 90% of Cuba’s debts to the USSR, and the remaining 10% ($ 3,5 billion) is supposed to be invested in the Cuban economy, by repaying over 10 years in equal semi-annual payments ...

              Thus, strategically important relations with Cuba were restored in all key areas: healthcare, industry, culture, military-technical issues, cooperation in the space sector ...

              smile very significant

              Are we not noble? $ 30 billion of debt was written off. This is not dog fuck, a lot of money. But Obama, on the contrary, arrived in order to give heavy loans to Cuba and then, under interest, to select the coast into the ownership of American hotels.

              It is sad to read about tainted relations with Cuba, but still there is still hope. The Cubans turned out to be poor leaders and were not able to create a promising industry and a complete lag behind the modern level of countries even their region - in person. But they see how the orientation toward independence ends without the support of Russia (Yugoslavia, Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan). And the example of Syria, on the contrary, shows that the support of Russia is the preservation of sovereignty.
              It is possible that they themselves one day will draw the right conclusions and will not allow their liberals (disadvantages) to power. And they need to start by creating their own production of modern weapons, as in China, with the help of Russia, and then another industry will begin to develop, everything is interconnected.

              I have to! What costs are we talking about? Over there Americans print their greens without restrictions. They spread their microelectronic technologies throughout Asia and for some reason do not believe that investment is a waste. Everywhere and everywhere they sell their weapons.
              Russia is not a socialist country now, so do you think it is an empty occupation to profit from investments?
              Cuba is an unsinkable aircraft carrier and a huge territory for the creation of transshipment points for the sale of its weapons in the South American region. We are launching rockets from the Kourou Cosmodrome in French Guiana, but what would it be worse in Cuba? And imagine that relations with France and the EU will finally deteriorate, we will simply be thrown out of there and the money spent on construction will not be returned, and even the spaceships prepared there for launches will be captured.
              And if Cuba gradually creates an industry competing with America and moves the state, it will also be in Russia's hands. I am more than sure that there are a myriad of oil and gas in the territorial waters of Cuba. And about the minerals on the island itself? Agriculture is completely not poisoned by modern American chemicals, ecologically clean territory. All of these must be dealt with and pushed the Americans into the back seat.

          The assistant secretary of state forgot to add that missile defense missiles can now launch satellites, and radars monitor the territory of Russia to the Urals, which is not very good.

Now good relations with Iran, but missile defense continues to be deployed. however, on the other hand, if missile defense against Russia is not effective, why deploy?

        Initially, they created and covered up with all sorts of Iran, but when they actually launched this missile defense system in Europe, Frank Rose's words found real meaning.
        In turn, Assistant Secretary of State Frank Rose said at a press conference in Bucharest that “being located in Europe the PRPO system is not capable of undermining Russia's potential strategic deterrent. ”

        That is, now almost 90% they will not be able to undermine our potential strategic deterrents, but still the question remains what kind of missiles can be placed in European mines?

    We are told about a system of protection against threats from Iran and the so-called rogue countries. This is in doubt. Spend hundreds of billions of dollars to intercept 3-4 Iranian missiles? And why should Iran attack Europe when 70 percent of its foreign trade is in the EU? Afraid of North Korea? But she simply has nothing to reach for Western Europe.

    The US State Department claims that the deployment of an American missile defense system in Europe does not threaten Russia. Then Russia didn’t have to place its military bases in South America and Cuba and also declare that we are not threatening anyone but only restraining and guess who you are.
