Putin: Russia Ready to Respond to U.S. Missile Defense [View all]

KORENOVSK (Krasnodar Territory), June 14 (RIA Novosti)

Russia has every possibility to provide proper response to the projected deployment of a U.S. missile shield in Europe, though Moscow would like to see the U.S. plans revised, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday.

“We should look forward and give response in a timely manner,” Putin told servicemen at a Russian air base.

“Of course, our partners should better not do this as this move would drive our response,” he added.

The president stressed that regardless to the rhetoric western politicians use to describe the shield deployment plans, “this remains a part of the arms race.”
