Putin warned about retaliatory measures for deploying a missile defense system in Romania and Poland (The Independent, United Kingdom)

42



Russian President Vladimir Putin warned Romania and Poland that they could be under the gun of Russian missiles due to the fact that elements of the American missile defense system were deployed on their territory, which Moscow considers a threat to their own security.

Putin issued this tough warning about the deployment of the US missile defense system, saying that Moscow had repeatedly stressed that it would be forced to retaliate, but Washington and its allies ignored these warnings.

Earlier in May, the US military - claiming that missile defense is necessary to defend against Iran, and not to threaten Russia - put the Romanian missile defense base into operation. Currently, work is underway to deploy the second part of the missile defense system in Poland.

“Yesterday, some parts of the territory of Romania did not know what it was to be at gunpoint, but today we will have to take certain actions that will ensure our security,” Putin said at a joint press conference with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras (Alexis Tsipras ).

“The same will happen in Poland,” he added.

Putin did not go into details of exactly how the retaliatory measures will look, but he stressed that Russia is not taking the first step, but simply responding to the actions of Washington. "We will not do anything until we see missiles in the adjacent territory."

According to him, the statements that the missile defense system is necessary to protect against Iran are not tenable, since the six countries have already signed an agreement on the Iranian nuclear program. He added that the missiles that make up this system can easily strike at Russian cities.

“But how is this not threatening us?” Putin asked.

He expressed his disappointment that Russia's arguments about the American missile defense system were not heard.

“We have been persistently repeating, like a mantra, the same thing from the beginning of 2000's: we will have to somehow react to it. Nobody listens to us. Nobody wants to negotiate with us. ”

Putin spoke rather sharply on the issue of the Crimea, a Ukrainian region that Russia annexed in 2014. Moscow claimed that it was acting on behalf of the residents of Crimea, who voted to join Russia, but Western governments believe that it was an illegal seizure of territories.

“As for the Crimea, the issue, we believe, is finally closed,” Putin said. “No discussion on this issue with anyone Russia will not lead.”

The Russian leader also touched on the issue of relations with Turkey, in which serious tensions arose after the Turkish Air Force shot down a Russian bomber over the Turkish-Syrian border in November last year. Ankara claims that the plane violated the border of the Turkish airspace, and Moscow denies this.

Putin stressed that he is ready to consider restoring relations with Ankara, but for this, Turkey must take the first step. So far this has not been done.

Putin was also asked about the South Stream project - a gas pipeline that was supposed to run under the Black Sea, and through which Russian gas was to be delivered to Bulgaria, and then to the south of Europe. Russia froze this project after the refusal of Bulgaria.

Putin accused the US government and the European Commission of everything, saying that they were the ones who forced Sofia to abandon the project. But he added that Russia is engaged in the expansion of the “Nord Stream”, and expressed the hope that no one will interfere with it in this.

      The thing is that in the official "free, democratic press" it is impossible to write otherwise! You can lose your job - the censorship of the West, many times worse than the Soviet or even more so Russian, but they call it "freedom of speech", and our "noose of totalitarianism" - Democracy! laughing

      As for the deployment of missile defense installations in these countries, we have already discussed this here, the answer should be asymmetric - the Anglo-Saxons understand and respect only power! In this case, no one asks Romanians and Poles and should not ask - it is their choice to be the bedding of the Americans!

      It is not for them to judge what Russia should or should not. And as for the response, so over the centuries-old history of our country, the attacks of a variety of enemies have developed a conditioned reflex with us - to look at these enemies through the scope. Who took the weapon from the neighbors - we look at it from now on as a target. Nothing personal - the reflex is just that. Seshea also was not in this world, but this reflex already existed.

    I completely agree with you! But if the threat of Russia comes from the territory of these countries, I don’t give a damn how much the population of these countries will lie down in the event of our blow to them (all the more bosom friends we were with them, especially the Poles). Let them warmly thank their government.

    According to him, statements that the missile defense system is necessary to protect against Iran are not stand up to criticism, since Six countries Already signed an agreement on the Iranian nuclear program.
    Yes, not six countries, but six from these countries.
    Putin did not go into details of how the response would look
    And as always, adequate and asymmetrical. We will find something to answer, not "rust".

    Putin expressed his disappointment that Russia's arguments about the American missile defense system were not heard.

    All the same, it seems to me that we are losing in Europe, and perhaps not only because of toothlessness in terms of waging an information war for the minds of the population of other states. Our media learned very well how to inject strategic information for us specifically for the current goals. We have long learned how to separate grains from tares, and it is not so easy to hold us on the chaff. And what do we have outside our homeland? Weak attempts. Just look at the situation around the Boeing near Donetsk. Our media looked like bleating sheep compared to attacks on the minds of Western media. It would seem that we must exert ourselves, concentrate all our attention on the topic and push through our version of the tragedy, but it wasn’t there. There is no horn in Europe, so timid articles and plots on TV and at the 1-2 press conferences of foreign companies ’microphones were shoved into the Western media in detail. But the media is primarily a business, and only then ideology needs to be fought for this market and also able to fight on it. How can they hear us in Poland or Romania if the local media are aggressively working with the population, and we don’t even have sharpened websites in these languages ​​on the Internet? In general, a third can be added to the two troubles of Russia.

      Dear you are 100% right, that's why every speech of Putin is examined under powerful microscopes, we have good specialists in Russia, but they are only for internal "consumption", I have already given an example when a shark of a pen from the United States was invited to a talk show and he surprisingly quickly smashed our specialists and deputies to smithereens, this is a characteristic feature, "powdering the brains" at home and waging a fight (you cannot name it otherwise) with a strong opponent is another thing, first of all it is necessary to train such specialists and this is a state task

    The key words are in the title of the article "Putin warned of retaliatory measures ..." Well, then understand what you want. Everyone understands in their own way. But if such articles appear in "The Independent", then these are already some "glimpses" of normal consciousness in the Western press. I completely agree with Dmitry Potapov "... it doesn't really matter how many people in these countries will fall if we strike them." If someone in Europe dreams that Russia will fall on the Yeltsin path, it is deeply mistaken. Putin calls for a good deal. Until ... Further it will only be faster and megatons

    And no one will see anything.
    It’s just that new coordinates will be introduced into the missile’s flight mission.
    And this is bad enough.
    For in Bucharest and in its suburbs do not realize the seriousness of this.

    But if there was a site that would broadcast footage of what would happen to Bucharest and its inhabitants if one single missile hits the 50-100 kilotons and the consequences for Romanians specifically, then maybe the population realized that it was necessary to be outside the NATO bloc!

That the prospects for intercepting such and such a number of warheads is 0,01%, the consequences of the destruction of Amer bases will be such and such. Show video examples of the destruction and contamination of the area. In general, if desired, bringing them to seizures with a loss of consciousness of labor will not be special. The entire population of Pshekia and Romania must daily reproach and write in diapers and for themselves. Let the buzz in full! It is not difficult to organize such work on an ongoing basis. Then other geyropets, looking at these unfortunate people, trembling daily from fear, jumping at night on the verge of nervous exhaustion, they will first think with their heads before placing any dirty tricks against Russia.

      Here is one of our planned answers -
      Chaude - the new Russian Air Force training ground in the Crimea - will be an exceptional platform where Russian combat pilots will be trained year-round. Details Izvestia was told by the editor of the magazine Arsenal of the Fatherland Viktor Murakhovsky.

      At the Chaude training ground, pilots of Su-24M front-line bombers and Tu-22X3 long-range bombers will be taught how to use rocket-bomb weapons against targets on shore and at sea.

      He added that the training program for military pilots, in addition to air combat, includes an attack on complex ground targets - such as mobile command posts, batteries of cruise missiles during prelaunch preparation, (i.e. beat preventively) tank and motorcade on the march, objects in the sea.

    I put a "minus" on the article for this proposal
    Putin spoke rather sharply on the issue of Crimea, the Ukrainian region that Russia annexed in the 2014 year.
    The author believes that Russia annexed Crimea? Not there you throw your thoughts, dear ...


    Set yourself a minus for inattention. The author is not from RUSSIA. And what so undermines one place about annexitis? In fact, pure annexation. Crimea was the Ukrainian region? Yes. So he had to be torn away. And only then attach. If you claim that this happened by itself, then the clinical diagnosis will be on the face - pink glasses and a reluctance to see obvious things. Against the background of the bacchanalia that was happening in Ukraine, the Russian secret services carried out a brilliant operation. Or do you think Polite People appeared there on their own as well. The military units and the Navy of Ukraine were immediately blocked and any possibility of passing an order from Kiev to take measures to protect the integrity of the state was ruled out (and if even one part had succeeded, then there would never have been laundered aggression in its purest form), and an international assessment would not play a role in the fact that an illegal seizure of power has passed in the country; it does not give an automatic right to seize its territory by other countries. A referendum was held that gave yet another legitimate reason to send everyone away for a long time. And only after fulfillment of all conditions, including the request of the new authorities of Crimea for accession, Crimea was accepted. If you refuse Russia to be strong and take what it needs, bashfully replacing with phrases - you yourself have asked, then you are the most cultured - weather vane. What politicians say is one thing, their job is to smooth out all sharp corners in soft terms. So everywhere. So it is with us. I am personally proud of the fact that Russia did this - she came and took it (annexed it), and that, as befits a great country, do not worry what other losers think. Are you ashamed of this power?
