Zakharov: in connection with the deployment of the European missile defense system, Russia has the right to retaliate

66
Moscow can respond to military-technical measures in connection with the deployment of a US missile defense system in Europe, reports RIA News statement by the representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Maria Zakharova.




Earlier, Viktor Ozerov, head of the defense committee of the Federation Council, said that he did not exclude the withdrawal of the RF from the START-3 treaty in response to the continued deployment of the US missile defense system in Europe.

To the journalist's question, “Does Russia plan to withdraw from the START-3 Treaty in connection with the launch of the US missile defense base in Romania,” Zakharova replied:
“Considering that this was and remains not our choice, then, of course, we reserve the adoption of appropriate military-technical responses.”


“Russia has repeatedly pointed out the risks to international security that are created by the unilateral and unlimited deployment of US missile defense facilities in Europe. We were ready for close cooperation, up to the creation in Europe together with NATO of an anti-missile architecture, which would be built according to the principle of sectors, ”she stressed.

Earlier, NATO Secretary General Stoltenberg said: "We do not intend to intercept Russian missiles either in Romania or in Poland."

      "As it backfires, it will bite off!" it's time to acquaint the Yankees with a rich selection of Russian wise proverbs. After all, like a country where rabble has come from all over the world, they have neither fairy tales, nor proverbs, nor even national cuisine. Listen and listen to the fake "exceptional"! am

        Additional Iskanders are good. The Kaliningrad region needs to be strengthened. All objects can be taken there for sight.

      And why don’t we remember Cuba until America finally settled there again? Nikita then planted a good hedgehog for the staff! Why not repeat it, only at a new technological level? ... Or will we again think how not to anger the "partners"? am Or again, as Mikhail Yuryevich said

I think the reason was the disappointment in Russia, as the bearer of the communist idea, that Cuba alone could not withstand the United States. Yes, and we forgot them, we now have Syria ....

                    By oneself ? With Cuba, everyone (except the United States) trades in Europe, Canada, and Russia. Latin America. Africa (without any problems) - so the question is, what is there in the USA that is not possible to buy elsewhere?

                We went to see, in general, everything was like in the USSR in the late 80s.
                A prostitute is an honorable profession. A solid black market who works with foreigners is cool.
                Money for foreigners and locals (various), emptiness in shops, devastation, roads - complete collapse, in short, tell someone else about the upsets of socialism, Cubans have been champing this for 60 years.
                Families living in 3 generations in an apartment (shopping mall is not being built), shops on cards, issuance of salaries - products, etc. etc. Well, everything is like the 80s in the USSR.

      I think the problem is not in the possibility of interception, but about the strong similarity between the PU and the sea, from where medium-range missiles fly.

    Russia, defending its interests, of course, has the right to give any adequate response to the deployment of the forces of an unfriendly bloc near its borders ... I think the plans of the Main Operations Directorate of the General Staff of the RF Armed Forces (GOU GSH) will have new goals to suppress the first strike ...

        Who cares? We’ll put the Iskanders and call them anti-aircraft missile defense systems .. And most importantly, we won’t lie! If you pull the Iskanders and destroy the launchers of nuclear weapons then nothing will fly to Russia because there is nothing! So everything is true ABM and no other way! On the part of the United States, the ship’s UPJ established exactly the same rhetoric and do not blow into the mustache .. So there are no contradictions in missile defense in Cuba, Nicaragua, Venezuela .. There is really one and most important nuance that fundamentally changes everything, the leadership of Cuba and other potential the locations of our missile defense systems live in these countries and are not going to blame from there if something happens (or the end of their powers), and therefore they understand very well that they are turning themselves and their countries into targets № 1 in which case with zero chances of survival .. Therefore, the question of placing our missile defense there is practically impossible! but in all sorts of romania, poland, ruins, it’s easy for the managers who appointed the United States to spit on these geographic entities and that they don’t care much with them .. That’s the whole difference in the approach of the USA and Russia to missile defense ..

    Even Khrushchev told America that in the USSR the economy should be economical and pointed his finger at one point on the map. The Americans carefully wiped the map, looked at it and said, "Why did the forest not please you?" Khrushchev pointed his finger again, called for forestry specialists, those other specialists, those who still brought people with them.
    "Well, a volcano, well, a supervolcano, so what?"
    "Well, watch the seismographs," Khrushchev vaguely promised and left.

    It's good that "we reserve the right to retaliate"
    And where are the measures?
    The base in Romania has already been opened! Not late with the measures?
    Maybe it was necessary to act screwed!
    Soon they will open a pro base in Poland.
    Also express concern?
    Even on the leadership of such a "preoccupied" all around were scared!
    Where are the measures? Where are the solutions?
    Why didn’t they say before deployment, or now in plain text, that in the event of a conflict, a nuclear attack on the base and infrastructure, right up to the Yousey Voentorg store in Bucharest! Where?
    Or are we, so quietly quiet, they already understand! Yes, no one is going to understand anything there, it is necessary to press hard and put on the front sight openly so that the population itself does not play guesses, but understands that the base about their state is in the event of a conflict the death of their children in a nuclear fire.
    Tough? Yes, tough! But in a different way it will not reach them!
    We must defensively! Work with neighbors! And not like with Ukraine!
    We express our concern !!! Mother no words ...

    Moscow does not "have the right to take action", Moscow is obliged to do this: to place any missiles where needed to calm the peaceful NATO members.
    If START-3 denounces, be sure to pour a large faceted glass in this honor ...

    Yesterday Zakharova began to hint (for the first time from officials) that the deployment of Euro ABM is a violation of the INF Treaty.
    Russia needs to get out of all the Gorbachev-Yeltsin treaties. What we consider necessary (without extremism), then deploy.

      A violation of the INF Treaty is not the deployment of Euro missile defense, but the installation of MK41 launchers on the ground, from which it is possible to launch not only cm-3, but also Tomahawks.
      And Zakharova is not the first, Lavrov has spoken about this more than once: "... besides, the Treaty directly forbids the anti-missile launchers, which will soon be deployed in Romania and Poland." (http://www.interfax.ru/world/422541)

    "We do not intend to intercept Russian missiles either in Romania or Poland."
    YES you can’t do it already, but starting in 2020 it will be USELESS!

    If the Americans promise something, asymmetric measures must be taken.

    In connection with the threat to the life of Russian citizens, it is necessary to deploy not only air defense and electronic warfare equipment, but also missiles with nuclear warheads in constant combat readiness. In order to be able to reliably suppress any missile launch from a given direction in the shortest possible time. And directly declare that any launch from this base could entail a massive nuclear strike at these facilities, so that the gentlemen who sold their countries knew what they were risking.

      Yes, no one asked people from these countries. Their power is abstracted - they took and accepted the NATO base buildings. Even if they change their minds = the United States, there isn’t enough forces to drive out.

    Earlier, NATO Secretary General Stoltenberg said: "We do not intend to intercept Russian missiles either in Romania or in Poland."

    And for the market to answer?
    Or maybe we should check such statements?
    Accidentally hit a training (completely inert warhead) on the points of deployment of missile defense in Poland and Romania, and at the same time on airfields in the Baltic States.
    Saying for 10 minutes before landing, the warheads are completely inert (with sand). Schaub's staff went into hiding.
    Do not intercept - believe.
    But all they know will be that the next time and not inert will arrive.
    And they and us teachings.
    Self-training and PCB them for three days with washing underpants (sorry) tolerant panty liners.
    With the subsequent issuance of double diapers with HH.
    Please forgive my soldiers' humor! soldier

    "Moscow can go" ... Or maybe not? Maybe we’ll go to bed?
    Silently and immediately yesterday to withdraw from all contracts that are not beneficial to us!
    It is necessary to react in such a way that their eyes go to their foreheads and become obsessed with themselves! And do not idle.

    Families living in 3 generations in an apartment (shopping mall is not being built), shops on cards, issuance of salaries - products, etc. etc. Well, everything is like the 80s in the USSR


    In the 80s, this was not the case in the USSR. Housing was under construction. My family has improved their housing situation three times. Salaries were paid in cash. It was in the late 80s there was nothing to buy for money, only with coupons.

    Let these clowns build anything, in which case all this will be destroyed in the first place. I can guess in the first half hour. And the missiles themselves, what is the use of them if there is no tracking and guidance system. All of this is already crammed into the goal database.
