INF Violation Hits Radar Screen amid Rising Tensions over Ukraine

It has just been announced that Russian and US experts will meet in September to discuss a bilateral agreement. This is an important event against the background of rising tensions over Ukraine. The U.S. has recently informed its NATO allies about American concerns over a possible breach of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF) by Moscow banning all ground-based nuclear-capable missiles with range from 500 to 5,500 km... A lukewarm conflict between Russia and the US has been drawing on for a number of years with mutual accusations at experts’ level. Minor treaty violations are a routine matter to be tackled by working groups. It is usually solved without any media attention, but tensions hiked over Ukraine have caused the matter to spill into the open and get blown out of proportion...

Here We Got Dry Rations for You, Go and Satisfy Your Far-Fetched Fancies…

...Talking about the events in Ukraine, it’s worth to look at what is happening in other places. In 2011 the US declared the Asia-Pacific pivot policy... The Far East is the region of tight rope walking and play of nerves. Every day new statements are made and new steps are taken to demonstrate the parties’ resolve. It’s hard to make predictions, but there is one conclusion which is obvious: the United States has no whatsoever intent to get mired in Ukraine and defend the Donetsk or Lugansk no matter what fancies Kiev strategists and obedient media outlets may entertain...

Ukraine Becoming Source of WMD Proliferation

As media reported on April 5, Turkey is allegedly in talks with Yuzhmash Mechanical Plant to buy the production documentation for the intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) R-36M2 «Voevoda» (NATO classification - SS-N-18 «Satan»)... The situation in Ukraine and the related threat of uncontrolled proliferation of missile technology becomes a universal problem. The Kiev-based regime is ready to sell the weapons and delivery means to anyone.  The draft law N 0076 denouncing the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) of July 1, 1968 was submitted to the Ukrainian parliament on March 20. The goal to make Ukraine a nuclear state is stated in the program of neo-Nazi Svoboda Party, which has representation within the ranks of the Kiev-based ruling group...

US encirclement of Russia can force it to quit New START treaty: Bruce Gagnon

The United States is encircling Russia with missile defense systems that can force Moscow to quit the New START (Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty) which is aimed at limiting the number of atomic warheads the US and Russia are allowed to possess, a political commentator says.

Prompt Global Strike: Another Stride to Ambitious Incarnation

The Prompt Global Strike (PGS) program encompasses numerous technologies... Russian officials have expressed their sharp criticism towards the U.S. plans for the PGS initiative... A plan is being drafted to deploy rail-mounted nuclear missiles as a potential response to Prompt Global Strike. On December 18, 2013, Lieutenant-General (two stars) Sergei Karakaev said, «A defense ministry report has been submitted to the president and the order has been given to develop a preliminary design of a rail-mounted missile system»... Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said last December that Moscow reserves the right to use nuclear weapons in response to a conventional strike and sees them as a «great equalizer» reducing the likelihood of aggression...

Nuclear Issues: Words and Deeds (II)

On January 3 Defense Ministry spokesman said the Russian military plans to test around 70 types of rocket and missile weaponry at a major testing site this year. According to Colonel Igor Yegorov, the Ministry’s spokesman, the testing program at the Kapustin Yar range in southern Russia will include about 300 launches of rockets, missiles, and aerial drones as part of more than 180 R&D projects... Russia has insisted that further offensive nuclear reductions also depend on a resolution of its concerns about U.S. strategic missile defense plans. US missile defense and ongoing nuclear forces modernization programs, the Prompt Global Strike concept and evident US superiority in non-nuclear high-precision long-range weapons, the growing proliferation of nuclear weapons on the world (the aspect the US avoids to take into account while putting forward strategic forces cuts proposals) – all these factors define the Russia’s stance on the issue...

NATO, Russia – BMD in Europe Remains to be Bone of Contention (II)

...Russian officials have announced the plans to place short range Iskander missiles on the EU border in the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad in case NATO goes through with the third phase of European missile defense. The possibility of pre-emptive strike on the European missile system, if the US refuses a dialogue, was voiced in 2012. .. On October 28 Russian President Vladimir Putin nullified the 2011 order that created an interagency working group that focused on fostering missile defense collaboration with NATO... The S-300 units that Russia will provide to Belarus are to be fielded not far from the country's border with NATO member states - Lithuania and Poland...

Russia, China Join Efforts to Prevent Arms Race in Space

Speaking at the United Nations on October 17, 2013 Mikhail Ulyanov, director of the Department for Security Affairs and Disarmament at the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, informed the audience that Russia and China decided to submit a draft resolution on transparency and trust in space activities to be reviewed by the United Nations... Many elements of the US missile defense system currently being developed or planned possess dual-use characteristics and could become space weapons. Missile defense allows countries to develop offensive technologies under the pretense of defense. For example, Kinetic Energy Interceptors deployed in California and Alaska are launched into space to smash incoming missiles which presupposes the capability to destroy satellites as well...

Obama Axes European BMD: Prospects for Russia-US Relations

On March 15 the United Stated made public its decision to cancel a key part of its Eastern European missile defense plan due to development problems and funding... US missile defence plans in Europe have been one of the touchiest subjects in US-Russian relations for years... The fact the US axed the fourth phase is certainly not the end of the controversy. The Russian officials never said the cancellation of the fourth phase is a solution...

Russia’s Strategic Nuclear Forces and Deterrence

According to Russia’s stance, any country committing an act of aggression against it will have to face guaranteed retaliation. The Russian strategic forces have reached the critical stage: the US missile defense is capable of intercepting 600 - 700 ballistic missiles and is being upgraded. The estimates show that only the level of 1.5 thousand warheads guarantees the capability to strike on launch. The further strategic arms reductions without reaching an agreement on missile defense will devalue the Russia deterrence potential and create new threats to the security of Russia and international security in general...

CIA Assassination Furthered Dutch Neo-Colonialism

It has been the policy of the Barack Obama administration to oppose the granting of independence by European colonial powers to any more territories in the Caribbean. Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte told the leaders and people of six Dutch territories in the Caribbean in July 2013 that the Netherlands was prepared to grant independence to the islands but that the United States was adamantly against the idea... But how far has the Obama administration and the freewheeling Central Intelligence Agency gone in order to prevent any newly-independent nations in the Caribbean? Some suggest that under its thuggish director, John O. Brennan, the CIA engaged in political assassination to help drive home its point...
