Russia Test New Missile – Putin Strong Warning To West.

Posted by QB on May 29, 2007

Russia has test its new missile with capability to carry multiple warheads with long range of 6000 km. This was very much expected from Russia as the country is feeling so uncomfortable with US installing missiles defence system in Europe. Bush wrong policies are to be blamed. Russia has the right to defend itself against the growing threat of US.

In what is becoming the most serious confrontation between Russia and the West since the end of the Cold War, Mr Putin made clear that Moscow was determined to confront the American plan to site missile defences in eastern Europe.

“We consider it harmful and dangerous to turn Europe into a powder keg and to stuff it with new weapons,” Mr Putin told Portugal’s Prime Minister Jose Socrates at a meeting in the Kremlin.

“It creates new and unnecessary risks for the whole system of international and European relations.”

Russia has tested a new type of ballistic missile at the same time as warning the West that deployment of any missile shield would turn Europe into a “powder keg”.

Moscow said the missile travelled 6000 kilometres before hitting its target at the Kura test site north of Japan.

It was carrying multiple warheads designed to specifically evade a missile shield.

President Vladimir Putin says he told the visiting Portugese Prime Minister his concern at present relations with the west. He drew attention to the fact that certain countries had not signed the Conventional Forces Treaty limiting military build-up in Europe, and reiterated his opposition to the American plans.

Up to now Washington has dismissed Russia’s fears about the planned installation, insisting it only wants to protect itself against attacks from “rogue states”.

It has continued to talk to key eastern European countries, such as Poland and the Czech Republic, about the possible provision of facilities.

The test firing follows a trip by Putin himself to those key countries to underline his displeasure at the proposals.

The new missile would apparently be capable of hitting the east coast of America, if fired from Moscow, in less than an hour. Source : Russia warns the west it is playing with fire as it tests new missile.
