The collapse of the missile treaty with the United States is beneficial to Russia


The Intermediate-Range and Shorter-Range Missile Treaty ended more than a year ago. President Putin again proposed to NATO countries to introduce a moratorium on the deployment of missiles in Europe in order to neutralize the negative consequences of the collapse of the INF Treaty, and again did not find understanding. But is it really that bad?


First of all, it is necessary to understand that the "cold war", in fact, did not stop for a day. During the confrontation between the two blocs, the Old World was oversaturated with nuclear weapons, and both sides were ready to use them at any moment. The whole of Western Europe was at gunpoint of Soviet missiles, and the Eastern and a significant part of the territory of the USSR were American. Since the flight time of a missile from a nuclear warhead to Moscow did not exceed ten minutes, the military was in constant tension, and sooner or later it would not have ended well. Detente came in 1987, when the INF Treaty was signed.

The collapse of the Soviet Union was a turning point in the course of the Cold War, since it not only radically undermined the military and economic potential of the young Russian Federation, but also brought NATO borders closer to it to the distance of "direct shot". In Poland, elements of the American missile defense system Aegis Ashore are being built, aimed at arresting the potential of our Strategic Missile Forces. They have already been put into operation in Romania. Ukraine and Georgia are on the verge of the North Atlantic Alliance. All this poses a huge danger.

On the one hand, Aegis Ashore complexes in Poland can be covered by Iskander missiles from the Kaliningrad region and Caliber missiles of the Russian Baltic Fleet, and in Romania - by cruise missiles from our Black Sea Fleet. On the other hand, a feature of American missile defense systems is their dual purpose. Within 10 hours, they can be converted from interceptor missiles to Tomahawk cruise missiles, the flight range of which allows covering not only the bases of the Baltic and Black Sea Fleets, but also Moscow and St. Petersburg, for example. This, of course, is not XNUMX minutes, but a day for preparation is very little.

Let's face it, the INF Treaty was much more disadvantageous for Russia than for the United States.

At first, medium and shorter-range missiles are not dangerous for the American "heartland". In the event of a conflict with NATO, a nuclear war will be waged in the Old World.

Secondly, one should not forget that besides NATO, Russia has other neighbors from whom one can expect anything in the future. For example, China, which is not bound by any restrictions on medium-range missiles. If something goes wrong, the Chinese will hold at gunpoint half of our country's territory. This is so, by the way.

Thirdly, the arms race, by and large, never stopped, despite the INF Treaty. Almost immediately after withdrawing from the treaty, the United States tested a brand new medium-range missile within a month. Phenomenal development speed, you won’t say anything. Knowing who they were dealing with, our defense engineers created the 9M729, which did not violate the INF Treaty, but contained a constructive opportunity, if necessary, to increase the flight range. As a matter of fact, the United States was hooked on this missile as an excuse to withdraw from the agreement and openly conduct its own tests.

Now the masks have been dropped and events are developing within the framework of the already quite official "cold war". Unfortunately, our country approached it in an incomparably less prepared state than the USSR. The military-industrial potential is incomparable, there is no security buffer in the form of Eastern Europe, NATO is right at our doorstep. The temptation to drag Russia into a new arms race by deploying nuclear missiles in Europe is too great for the United States not to use it. For this reason, President Putin's peace initiatives are bouncing off the wall like peas. Therefore, we should thank our defense specialists, who did not sit idly by, but created a new missile, which after revision should become a worthy response to the deployment of American ones. The 9M729 can be installed not only on the Iskander OTRK, but also on the Bastion coastal complexes, which will expand the possibilities for its use and deterring aggression.

    Some kind of crazy delirium, everything is upside down. The end of the INF Treaty is only beneficial for the United States, since they are overseas and they don't care about medium and short-range missiles. And by placing short and medium-range missiles in Poland and Lithuania, you can easily shoot everything to the Urals.

      And by placing short and medium-range missiles in Poland and Lithuania

      On the other hand, Poland and Lithuania will think ten times over whether to deploy American missiles there or not, if they know that they will be targeted by the same, only from Russia.
      Or do you also think that the Americans won't even need their consent?

        Have already thought.
        Polish Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputovich called on the US to deploy nuclear-armed missiles in Europe.

      This is not a madman's delirium. This is just another component of the problem. Do you understand that, having finished shooting to the Urals, the United States will receive a nuclear strike on its territory? These are related things in a way.

        Or maybe they won't. An MRBM strike is about 10 minutes from launch to hitting the target versus 30-40 for an ICBM. Those. after the detection of an MRBM strike, the Kremlin has ONLY 5 MINUTES or even less left for any response.
        So the obvious beneficiary is the United States, for them MRBMs, BRMDs and CDs are absolutely safe.

          One / ten rockets can be hit suddenly.
          For a massive strike with thousands of missiles, it will take sooooo much time to prepare, so a sudden such strike cannot be a priori. Especially, the withdrawal to combat positions of any mobile systems. It will not go unnoticed.
          When the concentration of such funds reaches certain values, preventive action will be taken.
          The Americans have negligible enough stationary systems capable of being ready for launch within 5 minutes for a strike of this magnitude.

          For that, Russia, having lost this treaty, quite officially, will stuff everything on its territory with everything it has, placing it immediately at convenient positions for shooting, and keeping them in constant combat readiness.

          All this “Polish / Baltic tinsel will be destroyed within a couple of minutes. Together with all kinds of "jump airdromes", etc.

            Hehe. The trick is that 2-3 missiles may be enough.

            For that, Russia, having lost this treaty, quite officially, will stuff everything on its territory with everything it has, placing it immediately at convenient positions for shooting, and keeping them in constant combat readiness.

            You can have thousands of missiles. But what's the use of them if they don't take off and are essentially useless because USA overseas?

            Onward and with the song. Reducing the BB on the US ICBM is only beneficial.

              Yes, and this is not necessary, they will shower Russia with hats.)

              You can have thousands of missiles. But what's the use of them if they don't fly

              They will take off, and even how, and even before they fly from there (and will they fly?)).
              And generally speaking..
              Our dear "..ochka", you will not have fun in your outskirts either from one or the other. You will get hit on both sides.
              As they say, the gentlemen are fighting, the forelocks of the slaves are cracking.)

                Need to. Control bunkers cannot be destroyed by themselves.

                They will take off, and even how, and even before they fly from there (and will they fly?)).
                And generally speaking..

                Dream. Dreaming is not harmful. But in real life, a salvo of MRBMs along a flat trajectory and you have 3-4 minutes to make a decision, and for this decision to reach the entire Strategic Missile Forces system.
                This is if the cats or the Delta radar do not preemptively crash. If they crash, then you will die in ignorance.

                Our dear "..ochka", you will not have fun in your outskirts either from one or the other. You will get hit on both sides.

    - Yes, of course it is beneficial ... for Russia ...
    -And how else our neighbor and "very friendly partner" (who has 200-300 million hungry, ready-to-anything "human mouths") can still be brought to life ...
