The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation has named received by Moscow and Washington to offer to share information from satellites and radars on missile launches low-and medium-range "unacceptable." So Makar, the West failed to achieve a breakthrough in the stalled issue of creation of the American missile defense system. The report of the Euro-Atlantic security initiatives on missile defense held over the weekend of 40 eighth conference in Munich.
Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, commenting on the report in Munich, welcomed the fact of search techniques to build a common space of security, but did hint of dissatisfaction with the Russian side of the American initiative, saying that it is "the devil — in the details." In turn, the Russian Federation zamminoborony, stating the complete futility of negotiations, pointed to the fact that America's missile defense capacity may soon come a "point of no return."
The problem of missile defense now — a stumbling block between Russia, the U.S. and NATO. As the creators saw the report at a conference in Munich, finding common ground for compromise on this issue could ultimately serve as a basis for the continuation of the "reset."
Experts have proposed to organize a center for the exchange of data on missile launches low-and medium-range missiles, which would work in the international military staff, which is at once Russia, the United States and other NATO countries. To prevent the possible interests of the parties, the creators of the report recommended the first to filter the information that they consider more appropriate, and then transfer the data in a given exchange centers.
Analysts believe that the centers of this kind could be open on Fri exchange of data on movement of aircraft in Moscow and Warsaw. Items will take effect in May of this year — the Initiative Russia — NATO launched long ago, 10 years ago. And another center for the exchange of rocket launches is meant to open in Brussels.
Experts of the Euro-Atlantic Initiative believe that consolidating the missile defense system is not necessary. But the parties could agree on the procedures to enable them to establish a joint responsibility for intercepting missiles. In the missile defense system is proposed to include: the American side — satellites Aegis sea-based radars TPY-2 and SM-3 missiles, by the way, it is understood that South American ships will be based in the North Sea and the Mediterranean, with the Russian side — satellites and radars in Gabala and Armavir, ground missile defense system A-135 "Cupid" and S-300, S-400, S-500.
According disk imaging "Kommersant", the report does not answer two important questions: first, 1-x, whether located South American ships in the Barents Sea, in-2, I wonder what is meant by the interaction of the fourth step, the deployment of a missile defense when the fighting qualities of American missiles will change drastically?
Against the background of the described rejection Russian Federation proposals Munich Conference warning Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov in an interview to "Kommersant" sounded ominous. The deputy minister said that the inability to find a compromise on missile defense dilemma can fatally affect relations 2-states, and hence to the international environment.
According to A. Antonov, RF negotiations with the U.S. and NATO on missile defense stalled. The proposals for cooperation are not clear, and with the possibility of the role of Russia in the development of a European missile defense discussions are not. General singled out: "Explaining our inability to take into account Russian interests because of internal problems in the United States, we do not hear."
According disk imaging Antonova, South American missile defense system components in other regions also have anti-Russian. Antonov explained that earlier on this subject read as less as the main attention was focused on Europe.
The deputy head of the Ministry of Defense said that after the implementation of the 1st step, four-phase approach to missile defense, which, summing one-year results of the U.S. Missile Defense Agency, said in the days of General O'Reilly (head of department), there is a need to look at the existing problem of knitted. According to the views of Antonov, the consolidation of the euro sector with anti-missile facilities in the Asia-Pacific region and in Alaska will increase the ability of the U.S. joint missile defense system.
Antonov I saw that in that context the November ultimatum to President Medvedev U.S. side — direct signal to the "point of no return" in the capacity building of missile defense. And then to negotiate on this — is worthless.
Anatoly Antonov assured that the President of the measures will be implemented, and the pace of implementation will be linked to Russian estimates of the South American missile defense capacity.
In November last year, President Medvedev — due to the reluctance of the Yankees to confer legal security of missile defense not directed against Russia — announced a range of responses. Solve their Russian side has already begun. In accordance with the decree of the president in Kaliningrad put into service radar warning system for missile attack. December took first duty of the army aerospace defense.
The Ministry of Defence announced, and that for 10 years it is planned to upgrade the strength hundred percent SRF. Obsolete missiles "Stiletto" and "Topol" will be changed, "Topol-M" and "Yarsami."
