Russia has strengthened the country's nuclear shield with the help of China

Militarytechnical cooperation between Russia and China has reached an incredibly high level. Moscow provided Beijing with its "nuclear shield", a missile attack warning system (SPRN), which only the US and the Russian Federation had before. What will such a serious step mean for international security and our country?




At a recent Valdai forum, President Vladimir Putin said:

We are now helping our Chinese partners to create a missile attack warning system. This is a very serious thing, which will fundamentally increase the defense capability of the People's Republic of China in a fundamental way. Because now only the USA and Russia have such a system.


What is an SPS?

This is a warning system about the launch of ballistic missiles from the side of a potential enemy, the most important component of the "nuclear shield", which only gives a chance to launch a retaliatory nuclear strike against the aggressor. Work on the creation of SPRN began in the fifties with the advent of the first ballistic missiles. Today it consists of two echelons: ground-based radars and orbiting satellite constellations. The system should record missile launches and calculate the points of impact from the trajectory.

Today, after the liquidation of the INF Treaty, the importance of the MDL for the country's defense capability has increased dramatically. Many ground-based radars remained on the territory of states that gained independence as a result of the collapse of the USSR. Their fate, as a rule, is unenviable. The Russian military had to leave Latvia, Azerbaijan and Ukraine, while the radar stations in Belarus and Kazakhstan were being preserved. In the once unified radar field, “gaps” formed, which could only be closed by opening new stations on its territory.

Meter radars are located in the Leningrad, Irkutsk and Orenburg regions, and decimeter radars are located in the Kaliningrad region, near Krasnodar, Krasnoyarsk and Altai. The plans include the construction of SPRN stations in the Amur and Murmansk regions, the Republic of Komi. Radar may appear in the Crimea in the region of Sevastopol.

Thus, Russia itself is again covered by a single radar field. The transfer of such an important defense technology to China is seen in the context of the deterioration of relations between Beijing and Washington and their improvement - with Moscow. In fact, this is a huge breakthrough for China in ensuring its security, the famous military expert Igor Korotchenko believes:

This is indeed a huge contribution of Russia to strategic stability, since China receives a powerful tool in order not to become a victim of the first disarming strike from the United States.


Indeed, the Pentagon will now lose the opportunity to launch a preventive nuclear missile strike against its main adversary in the person of China, and it will be guaranteed to receive change. All in all, this will help reduce the risk of the outbreak of World War III if Washington suddenly decided to deal with Beijing by force. In addition, thanks to the deployment of early warning radars in Chinese territory, Russia will be better covered from the east.

However, there is a fly in the ointment in this barrel of honey. The famous military expert Konstantin Sivkov gives the following arguments:

Now China depends on us in the issue of a missile defense system, and therefore it has friendly feelings for us. When China has at its disposal all the technologies that Russia has at its disposal, or creates similar ones, it will cease to need Russia as a defender.


The expert suggests that in the future this noble gesture will have negative consequences for our country.

    Moscow provided Beijing with its “nuclear shield,” a missile attack warning system (SARS), which only the United States and the Russian Federation had before. What will such a serious step mean for international security and our country?

    Once upon a time, in the 80s of the past, under Gorbachev, the USSR suddenly began to naively and criminally saw down the corps of Russian missiles, destroy military aircraft, withdraw troops from European regions, disband entire military units ... - All this happened under Gorbachev. ..and under the USSR ...
    - After which Russia (USSR) was severely and disastrously punished for its stupidity ...
    - And today, Russia is providing China with new missile launchers; the latest military equipment; super modern military aircraft; the latest defense technology ... - And here's another missile attack warning system (SPRN) literally "leaked" to China ...
    - What do we have ... - the clear enemies of the people are leading the state ... ???
    - This is the same as it was during the time of Gorbachev in the 80s of the last century ... - this is the destruction of missiles, and “sawing of aircraft,” and the disbandment of Russian troops ...
    - And for this, Russia will again suffer the same “result” as under Gorbachev ... - But this "result" for Russia will be much worse and more catastrophic ...
    - Well, Russia does not learn from its own mistakes ... - what can you do ...
    - Even the USSR did not allow itself to share such secrets ... - always had a "spare trump card just in case" ...
    - And then ... - Well, it is necessary ... - Russia directly laid out all its secrets ...
    Something clearly "wrong" is happening .... - some kind of zombie of Russia is happening ...
    - Personally, I won’t be surprised if suddenly Chinese military bases begin to be created in Russia and Chinese military garrisons are located ... - It just takes fear ...

      And who told you that this is so? Do you really want to expose us in an unsightly Down form?
      Did China offer Russia anything, at least in terms of building ship hulls? Or did you forget how the “Vyshny Volochek” with the famous Chinese power plants was dragged in tows? Or are Chinese military units involved with ours in the fight against ISIS in Syria? Or did you forget that the cut down and exported forests of Siberia provoked floods and floods that brought disaster and grief?

      It seems that Putin is convinced that C is a communist, which means it makes sense to be friends in full.

    Sailed. To transfer to a neighboring state, which has a modern, 8-9 times large economy and 1,5 billion people, one of the key in the current defense technology. To hypothetically imagine a situation where relations with this country will enter a conflict stage, is there enough imagination? When a country is ruled by latent degenerates, sooner or later a kirdyk will come to such a country.

    Again Putin leaked everything laughing Citizens, "worried", before you resent, please look at what is at stake winked The missile attack warning system is a stationary radar.
    The detection range, if not mistaken, is about 2,5-3 thousand km. There are also mobile installations.
    The system also includes an orbiting constellation of satellites.
    In China, locators will be sent to the Pacific Ocean. Tracking of the Russian direction is excluded. Unless, of course, talented Chinese engineers learn to carry them in their arms. laughing (the size of a 9-storey building). How can this lower Russia's defense capability?
    New missiles will be tracked by American missiles (after the termination of the INF Treaty, many of them will soon appear there). All sorts of locators are now in great demand, they are selling (though not so simpler) to the Middle East, they are already in Egypt. Nobody talked about free distribution. Exported weapons of the previous generation or with underestimated characteristics are sold abroad. Again, no one said that the Chinese give anything in return. Recently, information slipped through that several billion were allocated from the reserve fund for the purchase of electronics for space (they create a reserve until they establish their own production). Guess whose electronics it will be?

      Golden words laughing Let’s throw something on your business trips, drive them to Washington, tell them unreasonable yes



      In the case of China, we are not talking about the deployment of military bases.

      We are now helping our Chinese partners to create a missile attack warning system.

      Obviously we are talking about the transfer of technology or equipment. However, with regard to China, this is one and the same. repeat .
      Look at the map, missiles from South Korea and from ships in the Pacific Ocean, in which case they will fly to us through China. For us, this is an additional line of defense and an earlier warning of the threat.

      ... military bases must be deployed in their territories.

      There is fresh news about the importance of bases abroad, and how overseas citizens nervously react to the construction of a base in Venezuela. Look at your leisure time with (01.20):



      Perhaps this will slightly change your opinion on this issue.

    20 years is not enough to build your own. Easier to sell - bought. When missiles fly through China, the radar is enough, a military base is not needed. But when they fly through Belarus, there must be a military base! This is what kind of patients you need to be in order to put Chinese electronics on military products, even factory assembled? I don’t remember exactly, either Malaysia or Indonesia bought a radar from China, so after 4 years they simultaneously went down. If our military needed Chinese electronics, then our satellites would be stamped as Chinese, not units. Of course, I have acquaintances who buy Chinese cars, but for 3-4 years. Then they sell it. The Chinese simply paid whoever needed, as usual.

      Sorry, no others. sad "Sworn partners" do not sell, but their ..... remember, back in the USSR there were microcircuits - "THE BIGGEST IN THE WORLD". fellow Since then, not much has changed, we are still lagging behind. sad By the way, I’m not sure what exactly the military, it was, satellites. I think the military manages its own, although it is more expensive and the service life is much less.

      If you “fight” with such an adversary as the United States, and this is precisely what is being discussed now, apparently, without “fastening” to your partner, you cannot do without dependence on him. This war can be both "hot" and economic. And this is, as in a battle, when there are enemies all around, you can even stand back to back not with a friend, or sometimes with a complete stranger, but your life depends on him, and his life depends on you. We have to believe. And after that, you can become friends for life, or you can never say hello at all. But it doesn’t matter if at a dangerous moment you covered each other’s backs ...

        Tse is true, but it’s a shame for the power ...
        And to fight ... Children of officials and oligarchs live in the USA, and not in China ..., real estate, a share in business, enterprises .... Every week there is news, even here .....

        They themselves will smack in Voronezh, or Ufa, and they say - we are in the trenches, enemies everywhere, drive money to the Lake cooperative ...

          I think for you this is somehow even a too primitive view of the situation ... These will not smack anyone for anything, even if they really wanted to. They’re nobody there, and no way to call, whatever they have wherever.
          And as for shares in enterprises, it’s you who are very wrong wink there are shares, both large and in Chinese enterprises ... Moreover, these enterprises are not necessarily located in China itself, although they also exist there ...

            So for the sake of brevity, this is a slight exaggeration.

            Shares - perhaps not heard.
            Kids and real estate - even you agree.

            But that Ufa suffered a lot that year, for some reason - a fact. Then the bridge will fall, then the train will go off the rail, then the fires ....
            And Voronezh has long been heard ...

              ... do you really think that Ufa and Voronezh are someone’s machinations? am Maybe floods and forest fires?
              But then it must be noted that we also respond asymmetrically to the States with hurricanes and floods! wink

              Yes, but with shares, why not agree - this is a well-known thing. But not only with us.

                Voronezh is in the future (according to the joke). Ufa? "Coincidence, I do not think," or simply no luck.

    I have already made suggestions so that comments discuss the article and make suggestions, rather than discuss comments on the article. No need to be like VO, where half of the comments convey greetings to the other half, and zero according to the article.

    I understood it this way - to share data, not transfer technology. They will create it anyway, sooner or later.
    And to depend, it is necessary not to get ahead in this area.

    But why the meter range? These giants are so powerful that even with a centimeter range they can peek thousands of kilometers away. And in this range, they could not only detect the object, but also accurately issue target designation on it ...
