Will US missiles become closer to Russian Federation?

The Kremlin is closely studying the United States’ plans for deploying missiles in Europe. At the same time the Russian authorities believe that such intentions contribute to the growth of tension in the world, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.


He commented on British Foreign Minister Philip Hammond's statement that his country might host US missiles carrying nuclear warheads. "That would be a decision that we would make together if that proposition was on the table. We have got to send a clear signal to Russia that we will not allow them to transgress our red lines," TASS cited Hammond as saying.


"This theme is being discussed. It is topical. Any steps fanning tensions would benefit no one’s interests," Peskov said.


"Certainly, this theme as such can hardly contribute to enhancing the level of mutual trust and the balance of interests," Putin's press secretary noted.


He added that now Hammond’s statements lacked specifics. "For this reason we keep monitoring this theme very closely," Peskov added.


The editor-in-chief of 'Military-Industrial Courier' and the magazine 'Aerospace Defense', Michael Khodarenok, told a correspondent of Vestnik Kavkaza that the United Kingdom itself has strategic nuclear forces. "These submarines of the British Navy are aimed at Russia, as well as the strategic nuclear forces of other NATO members – France and the United States," he pointed out."If such a decision will be taken, then we will focus on deployment of tactical nuclear weapons in the form of land-based cruise missiles with nuclear warheads. The leadership of our country explained that this does not threaten anyone – however, Hammond's statement should be seen as an echo of the Crimean and the Ukrainian events," Mikhail Khodarenok said.The chief editor of 'National Defense' magazine, Igor Korotchenko, in his turn, placed special emphasis on the fact that the West has no grounds for the implementation of the announced plans."I can clearly say that the United Kingdom does not win anything by placing American weapons on its territory. On the contrary, the quality of the security of the United Kingdom will fall significantly. As for the statements made about United Kingdom's reply to deployment of Iskander missiles in the Kaliningrad region, Iskander missiles pose no threat to Britain: they have too short a range. In addition, Russia may place anything it wants on its territory," Igor Korotchenko stressed.
