Russia does not discuss missile defense with the US side, it was a choice of Washington, reports RIA News statement of the Russian ambassador to the US Sergey Kislyak.


Ambassador of the Russian Federation: there is no dialogue with Washington on missile defense or on the INF Treaty, and it is not planned yet


“There is no dialogue. But, by the way, and the majority of the remaining issues on our agenda of dialogue there. It was the decision of the American administration to interrupt the work of the presidential commission, in which there were a large number of working groups, including on disarmament and military-political issues. Everything is stopped, there is no dialogue, it was their choice ",
said Kislyak.

He noted that the Russian side "never hid from dialogue, but the dialogue should lead to solving problems, and not convincing us of what we are absolutely not ready for."

“Dialogue for the sake of dialogue is not always useful, although, of course, people prefer to say that it is better to talk than not to talk, and I agree with that. But in such problems, where everything is already spoken many times, it is important to conduct a dialogue that leads to a solution. We are realists. Will they have the willingness to seek a solution that would remove our concerns, then welcome, we will be happy. But so far I don’t see it, ”the diplomat added.

There are no plans for new meetings on the problems of the INF Treaty.

There will be no new meetings, the ambassador said. "The Americans pushed us allegations that reveal to us and were not prepared in detail. All this is very, very unconvincing, ”he said.

“Moscow fulfills the treaty and knows that a number of US actions, including the deployment of elements of a missile defense system in Romania, are contrary to certain provisions of the INF Treaty,” the diplomat said. According to him, "the Mk 41 launchers used by the United States are exactly the same as for cruise missiles on ships, and such on the ground cannot be obtained under the INF Treaty."

      As long as the dialogue is conducted from the position of Dictate (Democracy), there will be no sense. . .
      . . . as they push themselves run. This is so clear.

        Amerikosy appointed guilty. It is worth pausing and not imposing. When the client is ripe for dialogue, then meet. And now, quietly and calmly deal with pressing issues.

          For example, to work closely on the development of new complexes of the RIAC. And for starters - to increase the range (not to the detriment of other characteristics) of existing missiles. The same Iskander-M.

      And we will not see, if we are realistic, then our production must be developed and the army and navy more actively modernized. yes

      They will not sing, but will transfer the program of ground-based MK-41 in Europe to an official position. From some thread in Poland they cover Moscow, St. Petersburg and other important places of the European part of Russia, from Romania to the South.

      This is a replacement for the old program, which they closed because of the RMDS - there the carriers were unique mobile complexes of 4 Axes per installation.

      Now the stake is being placed on the Ax + in production in the UVP MK-41 production.

      In theory, they can only quickly add 1000-2000 missiles to a volley, to air and sea carriers (which also provide thousands of volleys).

      Plus, possibly thawing Pershing 3.

      Retaliatory measures cover only the European allies (many of whom, with a smile on their faces, agree to burn out, for the United States), and the United States is not geographically. That is, the Americans leaving the RMND can get a tangible advantage, especially taking into account START-3, when strategic carriers reduce, in percussion means (and even at stage 1 with axes, yes this is subsonic CD - but they must be detected and shot down, and with hundreds of masses per object - in the Navy this is called a glut of air defense contours), and retaliatory measures will threaten only the East European allies of the United States and bases (and military facilities are much more stable than industry and cities).

      Well, yes, and several hundred and tens of kilometers from our borders, hundreds of cruise missiles, as well as medium-range ballistic missiles, with a flight time of 5-7 minutes to Moscow will appear.

        For this, they are developing the S-500 to intercept medium-range ballistic missiles and, in the future, hypersonic cruise missiles, from the tomahawks there are S-400, S-300B4, Tor-M2, Carapace-C1, Buk-M2, they will soon begin to enter service with C -350 and Buk-M3.
        If Russia begins to develop missiles similar to the American SM-3 Block-2A, then again there will be parity and we will not be inferior to them in any way, but even on the contrary we will go ahead, since we have Yars, Bulava, Rubezh and Sarmat will appear soon, then there are missiles that can overcome missile defense, and the United States has the old Minutemans-3 and Trident-2 D5, which of course have been modernized, but the missile from the 70s has a limit of modernization like the missile from the late 80s (Trident-2), which already 26 years old.

      And the meaning of withdrawing from the agreement on the INF Treaty? Nobody abides by him anyway. They install the banned mk51 launchers, we have the KR P500 for Iskander, and there is certainly something else.

      I'm afraid they just will not sing!
      If, as they are written and written here, their missile defense installations
      missile defense systems are universal for many types of missiles,
      then the Americans are ready to withdraw from the INF Treaty
      and they only need a formal occasion
      to flood Europe with such missiles from their vaults!

    “The Americans brought us charges, which were not ready to reveal to us in detail. All this is very, very unconvincing, ”said the ambassador.
    According to the principle - "Russia is to blame for everything! Let's make excuses !!! And we'll see if your excuses suit us. Then we'll continue the dialogue ..."
    But would they not go to the forest ...?

    Yes, they have elections, with the option of a complete change of course. So they "froze" any work. Who's going to come? If Clintons come in - generally "put out the light", if Trump comes - it may begin to "shake up" the entire Amerovsky diplomatic corps - with a corresponding "fading" of diplomatic life.

    Want to see a flurry of calls and trips to the Kremlin. Conduct a "Status 6" test (of course, without an explosion). And Uncle Sam will immediately flap the wings of a dove of peace.

    Everything is stopped, there is no dialogue, it’s theirs was a choice

    Probably should stick to the statement from the joke - she died, she died. This is to the fact that we should not return to the topic of Pro and INF, a waste of effort and money.

    Yes everything is correct. Negotiations need to be conducted from a position of strength. It is time for our defense industry to prepare for these negotiations.

    What will they sing? The song today and then will be one - the Russians are coming, the Russians are threatening. So is there any point in ruining something in order to rebuild it later (even if the circuit does not work today).

    And how do we binge with it. Indeed, now the US accusation is unfounded. They do not place the Kyrgyz Republic there. And we get out of the Treaty - we will give them a green light. Not to mention the fact that in a short time they will be able to deploy their medium-range ballistic missiles, which we do not have ...

    Development is prohibited by the Agreement. And how do you imagine increasing the Iskander's range?

    Now the stake is being placed on the Ax + in production in the UVP MK-41 production.

    The Axes in production are not suitable for these purposes. From Poland they will be forced to break through Belarus or through the Baltic states. In any case, the range of targets hit on Russian territory will be about 600 km. In the second case, they will go through a fairly narrow corridor.
    On South. Defeat of targets in the western part of Russia is unlikely, since they are at the limit of flight range (even if you count flight in a straight line). Only Crimea is under attack. And an attack on the Caucasus is highly unlikely

    Yah? Do you think so? Speak out who and what specifically does not comply. And the LK.51 installation is strong. The Americans themselves know that there are such installations, but we have that the R-500 has a range of 2500 km, as some write here?
