The test of the first RIAC by the Americans: Europe is waiting for a “gloomy scenario”

On December 12, 2019, the U.S. tested a ground-based medium-range ballistic missile. The missile, having flown over 500 km, in its appearance resembles the Pershing II solid-fuel two-stage rocket, previously banned by the INF Treaty. December 14, 2019 the Russian senator, chairman of the temporary committee of the Federation Council on Information policy and interaction with the media, Aleksey Pushkov, called the main danger that the past test poses to Europe.

Pushkov (representative of the Perm Territory) expressed his opinion on the incident in his Twitter account. At the same time, the head of the Pentagon (US Department of Defense), Mark Esper, has already called the test successful and promising. The Russian senator is sure that if the test of this missile, for which the United States was preparing long before leaving the INF Treaty, is followed by the deployment of such missiles in Europe, then the test day could become a black date for the continent.

It (test - ed.) Will return Europe to a nuclear confrontation during the Cold War. Gloomy scenario

- emphasized the senator.

We remind you that the United States announced the withdrawal from the bilateral INF Treaty on February 2, 2019. Six months later, on August 2, 2019, the INF Treaty automatically ceased to exist. The Americans simply stopped being shy and began to actively improve their rocket Technologywhen their development came out on a practical plane and hiding the obvious became problematic.

    They clearly stated that they would not deploy short- and medium-range missiles in Europe.

      When rockets are already directed at you (they get Berlin from the missile defense), you will do everything to inflict maximum damage to the enemy.

      But if rockets from a country that only speaks of peace are already aimed at them, then you choose from two;
      1. or do you agree to die without defending yourself (and this is the height of stupidity!),
      2. Or do you place weapons equivalent to a threat!
      There is no third!

    Firstly, the fact that the photo is by no means a Pershing 2 rocket is an Ax-type missile. Secondly, which is more dangerous for Europe, the missiles are already deployed in Kaliningr. region or American missiles?
