Ballistic Missile Defense

NATO’s assurances that the European missile defense system will not be directed at Russia are worthless, Russian experts argue, so long as an agreement limiting the activities of missile defense systems to the borders of NATO member countries — and not an inch further — is not reached. Otherwise, Russia will be forced to take asymmetrical (but highly effective) measure to neutralize this missile defense system.
