KORENOVSK (Krasnodar territory), June 14 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia has all possibilities to give an adequate response to the deployment of a US missile defence system in the European Union.
However, Russia would prefer all these plans to be revised, Russian President Vladimir Putin said at a meeting with servicemen of the 393rd airbase of the Russian Air Force.
“We should look into the future and give a response at the same time (to the promotion of these plans – Itar-Tass,” Putin stated. “Certainly, it would be better for our partners not to do it, because this will evoke our response,” he said.
Putin noted that no matter what terms are used “this is an element of the arms race.”
“We have all possibilities for an adequate response,” the Russian Supreme Commander-in-Chief pledged to the servicemen.
Putin named the fulfilment of the state defence order among the main actions to this effect. “We should meet the deadlines of the state defence order and fulfil it with the required quality and at acceptable prices,” the president believes. “If we do it, there will be no special threat for us,” he said with confidence.
