In the Russian military-political literature, a study that can take its rightful place not only because of its own aimed at a specific subject relevance, and in depth analysis. We are talking about just published monograph Vladimir Kozin «» Evolution of the U.S. missile defense and Russia’s position «» / / Moscow: RISS. — 2013. — 384 pages (with illustrations).
Creator prepared monograph broadly known for his publications on the issue of strengthening international security. Vladimir Kozin, a member of RANS, consultant director of the Russian Institute for Strategic research, a member of the Expert Council of the Interagency Working Group under the Administration of the President of the Russian Federation on cooperation with NATO on missile defense is an active participant in discussions on missile defense issues, in the ongoing Russian Scientific Research Society . Only on this topic taken them more than 60 different jobs. And, unlike some Russian authors, who are trying to play along with Washington and U.S. plans missile qualify as a safe event, Vladimir Kozin alternately defends Russian military-political point of view regarding the threats that carries within itself the US-NATO layered missile defense system, stubbornly and aggressively advancing to the Russian borders.
And evidence of this is the monograph. It was prepared at the highest level, as they say, without water and foggy epistolary discourse. Research abounds decent amount of disk imaging and facts that demonstrate the extent of the U.S. missile infrastructure and its closest NATO partners, the consequences of its deployment not only for Russian-American relations, and for the global strategic situation as a whole. According to the views of the creator, there is the danger of an arms race missile, which can connect to many countries.
Seems slim structure of the work. Paying attention to the history and development of the concept of creation system for intercepting ballistic missiles in the United States, Vladimir Kozin concentrated in the main on the analysis of modern American anti-step implementation strategy as in certain regions of the globe, and on a global dimension. Namely, in the book examines the military, political, diplomatic, financial and other nuances created by the U.S. missile shield and its closest partners, summarizes the main results of the first step of the «European Phased Adaptive Approach» (EPA & P), evaluated the prospects for deployment of all other phases of the creation of the system intercept ballistic missiles in Europe and globally.
Increased attention is given to the naval component of the system, which will be an overwhelming number of interceptor missiles the U.S. and NATO. Separately, details of the U.S. missile defense system deployed in the Asia-Pacific region, the Middle East, the Persian Gulf.
At the critical key compromise proposals considered Russian and foreign experts to develop a joint, or a «cooperative» (as it is called in NATO) missile infrastructure between the United States and Russia.
The monograph emphasizes that in recent years the most destabilizing project in this regard was the concept of the «European Phased Adaptive Approach» to deploy ballistic missile interception system, announced September 17, 2009 President Barack Obama. His proposed principal missile defense deployment schedule calculated to 2020, and on the restructuring plan of the entire system and up to 2022, in its scope and military-strategic implications surpassed all previous concepts of a missile defense shield, which have been developed and implemented the previous U.S. administration.
Thus, in the period 2011-2013 the Pentagon to deploy based on the same shock combat sea-based missile defense systems, which form the backbone of a global missile defense system, made an intercontinental network of information and intelligence tools and new specialized multinational command and staff bodies have already tested the operational channels interaction between a real time.
Has entered into the second term of presidency, Barack Obama’s own left without changes earlier this South American Congress promise not to cut the U.S. missile defense program from either quantitative or in high respect. There were even the first signs of its continuation after 2022. Segodnyaschy U.S. administration not thoroughly trimmed any missile applets and their financing or production of high-speed interceptor missiles overpriced range, no plans to deploy them in the major regions of the globe.
U.S. officials have not offered anything effective to resolve the missile problem in US-Russian relations on 2-large international forums held in Moscow under the auspices of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation: no conference on missile defense in May last year, either during the debate on the security dilemma in this May. In his speech in Berlin on June 19, Barack Obama in general words or misspoke about the dilemma defense nor the methods of its constructive solutions.
The creators of the monograph consists recollection that in the coming years will compound the forthcoming technical state of the U.S. missile located outside their local area, with the means of defense of individual states — members of the Alliance. This will allow them to cover «anti-missile umbrella» significant places in Europe, and with the deployment of naval missile component — and other countries located on other continents.
The monograph concludes that the deployment of U.S. missile defense system and its closest allies in Europe and Asia-Pacific region is an extraordinary danger to state security Russian Federation for two main reasons. In 1-x, this system is already associated with strategic and tactical nuclear weapons the United States and NATO ordinary weapons that relate to forward-based. Russian expert recalls that the wording of the combined ordinary and nuclear weapons from U.S. missile defenses and NATO included in the final documents of the Alliance’s summit held in May 2012 in Chicago. In-2, Washington avoids providing legal guarantees of the Russian Federation on the use of this system is not directed against it. United States did not support the sectoral approach to resolve difficulties, the proposed Russian military and political control.
Vladimir Kozin also focuses its attention on the event that the Russian representatives did not participate in the development of the South American «European Phased Adaptive Approach» to missile defense in the preparation of the «road map» for the implementation of the NATO missile defense infrastructure on the European continent, as special annotations on the application of shock-martial missile defenses — «Rules for the use of force in the field of missile defense,» approved by the transatlantic alliance. Russian views on professional Pentagon proposal to restructure the American defense infrastructure, released in March this year, did not anticipate curtailing EPA & P applets.
The monograph carefully laid position Russian military and political control missile defense issues and his proposals for a settlement prepyadstviya, which is directly related to the national security of the Russian Federation. Creator reasonably believes that the position of Russian Federation on missile defense dilemma and must usually lined up as before lining up on the basis of 2-main principles. In 1-x, the South American missile defense system should not harm the security of our country, including to provide specific danger of SNF. In-2, the probable role of the Russian side in the development of the joint with the United States missile defense system must be carried out on the basis of equality and equal security for both sides, without provoking all this race and other missile weapons and undermining the foundations of allied and partnerships with other States.
The expert is convinced that in the case of failure to agree on the merits of missile defense with the United States Our homeland should take adequate measures to counter the growing missile and nuclear missile threat from the United States, in other words to create a promising means to overcome their anti-missile shield, also parallel to devalue their nuclear missile, high-precision and high-speed mundane weapons. This line is dictated by the reality of an impartial and only the task of ensuring national security of the Russian Federation. Created rightly believes that Russian military and political control there is no reason to adjust the national position on missile defense issues towards weakening it, as announced in the midst of March this year restructuring layered missile defense system the United States is not a radical revision aims to decrease the number of U.S. combat shock means.
Based on the above features of the present study we can say that it is, of course, will attract special attention of professionals and a wide range of readers interested in the military-political theme and neuvvyazkami strengthening security and defense of Russia.
