Russian newspaper: Dmitri Medvedev criticizes the installation of the anti missile shield in Romania / Bulgaria is ready to host the American shield
In a press conference, Medvedev expressed his hope that there are still possibilities of collaboration with Washington regarding the anti missile shield. Contrary to that, Russia will force the development of the offensive potential of the nuclear means, which Moscow does not want the Russian President said.
We would like to have the European air defense under clear regulations and I believe that everybody understands that the shield is a way to block or diminish the strategic possibilities of many countries, the Russian official said. Previously to Medvedev’s declarations, a similar warning was launched by Russia’s UN representative, Dmitri Rogozin. He said that a European air defense system without Russia’s participation is just a bluff.
