MOSCOW, May 23. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia will regret revising an adaptive approach for missile defense in Europe, Russia’s high-ranking diplomat said.
“If a compromise is not reached, there will be the only approach towards ensuring security - we’ll take retaliatory measures,” Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on Friday.
“We cannot be indifferent to the attempts to negatively impact Russia’s strategic nuclear deterrence potential. This is the essence of Europe’s missile defense segment,” he said.
“I’d like people who advocate intensifying the US efforts on missile defense to assume more responsibility,” Ryabkov said.
