The deployment of US missiles in Europe poses a threat to Russia’s security. This was announced by Russian President Vladimir Putin during a meeting with the leaders of the Ministry of Defense in Sochi.
Putin also noted that the new S-500 anti-aircraft missile systems will soon begin to be supplied to the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.
“There are also plans by the United States, known to everyone, to deploy medium-range missiles in Europe, which also poses a great danger and threat to us. Therefore, in accordance with earlier decisions, in the coming years, more than 200 aircraft and 26 S-350 and S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems, as well as the first production sample or the first production samples of the newest S-500 anti-aircraft missile system, will have to be supplied to the troops, ” – said the Russian president.
The head of state added that Russia cannot fail to notice threats to its own security and will “respond appropriately to the situation to this”.
“And now, you know, a US ship has entered the Black Sea. We can look at it through binoculars or through the sight of the corresponding defense systems, ”Putin said.
