Russia Revises Military Doctrine and Upgrades Strategic Nuclear Forces

...The Russian military leadership pays special attention to upgrading the nuclear shield. On the very same day the Russian President signed the document a RS-24 intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) blasted off from Plesetsk successfully hitting a designated target at the Kura test range on the Kamchatka peninsula in the Far East...

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...

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»...

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...
