His own contribution to this process and will wear the modern "molders of opinion" in the face of government experts, representatives of which less conscious (if any degree of cynicism and a tribute to the creative possibilities), carrying out a political order of the local elites, fully able to legitimize in the eyes of the unsuspecting public, even Losing advance from the standpoint of national interests or external domestic policy. In this respect, attention is drawn to the increasing trend in the near future stuffing information intended to reduce the fully justified fear (as in the standard, apparently, absolutely relieve anxiety) experienced a reasonable part of the Russian public about the ongoing process of building a U.S. anti-missile "trap" along the borders of the Russian Federation .
Another portion lulls statements to this effect with a light sedative effect was voiced at the round table on "Joint missile defense system in Europe: prepyadstviya and Prospects" which held in Moscow under the auspices of the Institute of Political and Military Analysis and Russian social and political center. "System U.S. missile defense does not pose a real threat to Russian strategic nuclear forces "- to such, to put it mildly, a controversial conclusion reached by the participants of this impromptu" brainstorming. " "Home hitch — Techno. Creating a system capable of firmly intercept Russian ballistic missiles, soaring in the United States on the active section of the line movement from the territory of Eastern Europe, it is virtually impossible, "- ubayukivayusche" evoked dreams of gold, "the general director of the Russian audience Center for Public Policy research Vladimir Yevseyev. If you believe them driven arguments missile "picket fence", arrayed United States, in fact more resembles "anti-missile screen", since due to the intractable problems in the timely detection of missile launches and issue a clear targeting a missile interceptor ensure it is virtually impossible to intercept Tipo.
For all this, however, Mr. Evseev acknowledged that parts of ship-based U.S. missile defense still pose a threat to our ballistic missile, which is related to the mobility of warships, which are at the theoretical level can be sent to any point of the oceans, in t . including directly below the intended trajectory of a ballistic attack, which in this case is placed in the Arctic region. But the director of the Center for Public Policy research here practically disowned alarmist note, clearly discernible in the last passage. According to Mr. Evseev, the implementation of the anti-missile strategy looks unrealistic. At least, until such time as our homeland is in control of its water and the northern polar latitudes, through which, if necessary, in the United States "from Russia with love" ballistic "chain letters."
"Anti lullaby" in the style of "All Quiet in Baghdad" in the performance of Russian analyst still ended (for the sake of verisimilitude?) On a rather alarming notes that, but it is not directly related to the arrayed in the U.S. missile defense system in Eastern Europe. "Interception warhead intercontinental ballistic missiles in the terminal phase of the movement line is more affordable, and the United States have systems like THAAD, which may act in a similar way," — Vladimir Yevseyev subtly shifted attention to the increasingly important, in his view, the problem of.
He was echoed by an employee of the Institute of Political and Military Analysis, Alexander Sharavin pointedly izrekshy obvious maxim for the fact that while the two countries have not agreed on missile defense, our motherland will refer to the United States with a grain of salt, and here outlined the ways to overcome this mistrust. According to the views of a professional, this can be achieved in the field of long negotiations and collaboration on this topic (ie, in fact the case, it is charmed by prepyadstviya Dangerous national security of the Russian Federation). "Some progress we have 20 years ago, it was impossible to imagine such exchange of views and information which is now. With all of this work lasts in question is to develop a joint warning center missile launches and the ability of joint command and staff exercises "- in the" perezagruzochnom "key Sharavin said.
Conclusions professionals, not uglyadevshih hazards of in the European missile defense system created by the U.S., in an interview KM.RU commented Vice President of the Academy of Geopolitical problems Konstantin Sivkov:
— Formally, the experts are right. At the current time, the ability of targeting U.S. missile defense system and the defeat of Russian intercontinental ballistic missiles are limited. At least, either the 1st successful interception of this kind was performed, even in the firing in the controlled criteria, the warhead is set when the transmitter. All the more so if it is an active area (where the rocket engine running, later warheads are divided and fly on a ballistic line of motion), which have an ICBM is 80 to 300 seconds. During this time kutsee ground-based anti-missile missile (GBI) just do not have time to jump up to a distance of 5,000-6,000 km. In general, interceptors it is not calculated, since they affect not only the rocket itself as a warhead, which flies in space.
Hitch is that in this area are very active, so that at some point there will be a success achieved, nor do I think it is — quite distant prospect. And that's when the system will have to provide a real danger Russian ICBMs. We will have to take some extraordinary measures. Americans work in the usual way: as long as they do all the necessary infrastructure, defense, and the necessary elements for it are being finalized simultaneously in such a way, so that by 2020 system Defense was effective at 100%. That is currently designated specialists are partially right. But in the coming term, the new South American interceptors might find themselves in the ranks, and then the nuclear potential of the Russian Federation will be neutralized. Later will drink Borjomi when the kidneys have fallen off.
That's why now need to take positive steps to prevent the deployment of the missile defense system near the Russian borders. Itself to itself the principle of "just at the moment the South American missile defense is not working at 100%, mean, and have nothing to worry about," is fundamentally wrong. In the strategic sphere must think long-term, since the answer is in the military-technical sphere will claim significant time measured in years. So when we talk about the missile defense system created by the U.S., we must realize that it is a military-technical challenge of the Russian
Federation. A means we must now solve the political and military-technical measures to neutralize it.
It should also be understood that apart from land-based ICBMs approximately 40% of the Russian nuclear arsenal is on nuclear submarines. Just submarines with intercontinental ballistic missiles in a vulnerable position. Their patrol areas for the most part located in the Barents Sea (another kind of grouping is saved in the Pacific), where our ICBMs could really threaten the SM-3 interceptor missile from the cruisers of the "Ticonderoga" and the destroyer "Arleigh Burke" filled with a system of "Aegis", which operate at a distance of 150 km. They are likely to be to destroy our missiles launched from submarines in the active portion of the line of motion.
By the way, the claim that our homeland is in control of its polar waters, is also very controversial, as at the present time the combat potential of the Northern Fleet did not solve the puzzle hold advantages in the areas of combat patrol missile submarines strategic focus. That is, in case of military conflict, Russian Federation will not be able to solve the puzzle of gaining dominance in the Barents Sea. And the United States, together with a fleet of NATO this puzzle solve. In the end, the Americans have already made plane ABL, or air-based laser. In practice, this "747", in which the entire length of the body is one big laser, which is able to destroy the Russian ICBMs at a distance of 400 km. Although as yet there are certain difficulties associated with the passage of the beam through the atmosphere as a result of the appearance of so-called. "Ion lenses" dissipation. Because as long as the range is limited to the acts of the beam distance a little more than 100 km.
Either way, this aircraft is able to identify and kill the rocket if it is in range of his reach, with the active portion of the line of motion. And when the problem is resolved with the passage of the beam through the atmosphere, it will be able to destroy missiles at a distance of 400 km. That is, carrying out patrols in the area of combat supplies our submarines, they are quite relaxed "vyzhgut" Our laser rocket launch. But there is still money gallakticheskogo bases over which are also intensively work, which also carries a significant risk of Russia's nuclear potential. And, that is, for warheads left on gallakticheskuyu line of movement, despite the fact that in space distance defeat is simply huge. For example, combat lasers will be able to ensure destruction of warheads to a distance of 10,000 km.
It should also be understood that all these components are created at once. This is — a set of research and development work being conducted on parallel fronts, with the plan to finish it by 2020. Accordingly, we must be able to make your own this time, adequate military-technical answer. In the unlikely event the potential of hitting the U.S. missile defense system, which is expressed as a percentage of our missiles, which it is able to grind to be around 200-250 units.
Regarding the creation of a joint center for missile launch warning that is issued by some professionals as almost a breakthrough in Russian-American relations: the practice has long been though a joint center was not. We always provide notice of the facts tests missile launches on training, etc. While the establishment of the center will further contribute to increasing mutual security in the random and unusual situations.
