Russia began to develop medium-range missiles

Russia, as promised earlier, as a mirror measure on US actions, is embarking on the development of medium- and shorter-range ground-based missiles.




This was stated by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov during a speech at the Moscow Conference on Non-Proliferation, which opened its work in the Russian Foreign Ministry and will last until November 10.

In his speech, the foreign minister noted that, despite the start of development, Moscow refuses to deploy these missiles in any region until US missiles are deployed there.

According to him, such a decision will allow maintaining the “window of opportunity” for finding ways to maintain and predictability in the missile sphere.

The Russian diplomat also noted that putting forward China’s accession to the talks between Russia and the United States as a precondition, Washington is deliberately provoking.

Meanwhile, Fu Tsong, director general of the arms control and disarmament department of the Chinese Foreign Ministry, said that Beijing’s plans did not provide for the Chinese side’s participation in the talks between Moscow and Washington, but he was ready to reduce nuclear weapons “within reasonable limits”.

The Chinese diplomat emphasized that, given the size of the nuclear arsenals, it was Russia and the United States that should be the first to begin to reduce their stocks, while the PRC was ready to join in and reduce its arsenal to an "honest level."

    And it would be even better if our military base were made in Cuba, this would be a mirror measure. yes

      But the Cubans do not have their own heads? Did you ask them? Why should they?

        After the events that they had, we can safely say: what they have! When they made the right choice and asked for help from us.

        Did you ask them?

        Necessarily, and more than half approved it.

        Why should they?

        In many respects, they need it, if only to improve the economy of the island.

          You seem to be completely confused in time and space. Already in time for exactly 60 years.
          And another grand pearl:

          For many indicators, they need it, if only to improve the economy of the island.

          What about our economy in this case? Again offering them for "full content"? Only the USSR had the second largest economy in the world in terms of GDP, while the Russian Federation had the sixth. How it all ended with the USSR, I think you remember.

            What 60 years, if we completely closed our military base there, only in 2002. Again you mixed everything up, well, nothing, I’ll correct you.

            What about our economy in this case?

            I won’t even comment here, I’ll just say one thing, we have 90 - the beginning of the 2000s, there were much more military bases.

            How it all ended with the USSR, I think, you remember.

            Of course, like people like you, walking and shouting how badly we should live under communism, we need democracy. Well, you got it in full.

              Let’s go on topic, not aside. That the missiles were there before the 90th? We tried to carry them in '62, this is where such "scarecrows" ended. Well, for 3 years I lied a little, for a round and beautiful date, but this does not change the essence in any way.

                You really let us on the topic, and not to the side.

                So we are talking about the topic.

                What rockets were there before the 90th?

                No idea, but our units stood there until 2002.

                We tried to carry them in '62, this is where such "scarecrows" ended.

                What do you mean tried? We delivered them and installed them. Another thing is how much they stayed there.

    Have begun - how is it? Just took a piece of paper and drew a rocket on it?

    Just loudly said about "mirror response"(despite the fact that Putin always had answers asymmetrical).

    And judging by other missiles, if this mirror response and will be able to fly (not to mention being put on combat duty), it’s very soon.

    Unlike the USA.

      Well, there’s absolutely no difference whether to use the strategic nuclear forces, or apparatuses of a completely different and cheaper class, we don’t even remember about nuclear weapons ...

      With Cuba, you can solve many problems.

      Now our rockets calmly get anywhere in the States ...

      Yes, they can, and this has already been tested in practice in Syria, if there are no obstacles in their way in the form of air defense. But not everything is so smooth here, in the sense that as long as the rocket reaches its goal, it can be brought down, the distances are very large. And if you launch missiles from close range, for example, from Cuba, then the efficiency will be much better, and it can miss air defense at such small distances.

        With the same success, you can contact the Texas government to deploy these missiles. There is even closer. I think they will not refuse.

          Not! With Texas, this will not work, Mexicans can immediately be outraged there, they will also require part of the territory. sad It is better then to turn to the government of California and Alaska. yes

              My position and work are not so good as to solve such matters.

    Only complete idiots try to weigh any object, laying it on one cup of scales, forgetting about the other.
    And on the other cup is the price of maintaining US military bases around the world. Which are DISTURBED from the creation and production of weapons. Don't you know that 80-85% of all military budget expenditures are not in armaments, but in the maintenance of bases? And that is exactly what allowed us, with a budget 10 times smaller, to be at the level of ....?
