Russia Can React Swiftly to US Nuclear Arms' Deployment in Eeastern Europe

First Deputy Chairman of the Russian upper house's Committee on Defense and Security Frants Klintsevich said on Saturday, Russia is capable of reacting swiftly to the possible deployment of nuclear weapons at the US and NATO bases in Eastern Europe and the Baltics in line with the recently issued US Nuclear Posture Review.


"If the US aviation equipped with nuclear weapons is deployed at the [US] bases in Eastern Europe and NATO bases in the Baltics, at the former Soviet military airfields and airfields of the former Warsaw Pact countries, Russia will, of course, redirect everything [toward these targets] swiftly," Klintsevich stressed, Sputnik reported.

Russia will be forced to protect itself from such possible threats, the lawmaker added.

The country will maintain and enhance the capability to deploy nuclear bombers and dual-capable aircraft around the world, and it is committed to working with NATO to ensure the readiness and operational effectiveness of such aircraft based in Europe, according to the 2018 US Nuclear Posture Review published on Friday.


  • The United States will also incorporate nuclear capability onto the F-35 bombers, which would be used as a replacement for the current aging dual-capable aircraft.


Over the past years, the United States and NATO have been increasing their military build-up in Eastern Europe and Baltic countries, explaining such actions by the need to protect from alleged Russian aggression.

Moscow has repeatedly stated that Russia has never planned to attack any NATO member, with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov saying that NATO recognizes the fact, but uses it as a pretext to deploy more equipment and battalions next to Russian borders.

  1. La Russie a dénoncé samedi le "caractère belliqueux" et "antirusse" de la nouvelle posture nucléaire américaine rendue publique la veille, avertissant qu'elle allait prendre "les mesures nécessaires" pour assurer sa sécurité face aux Etats-Unis...

    "Dès la première lecture, le caractère belliqueux et antirusse de ce document saute aux yeux", a réagi le ministère russe des Affaires étrangères dans un communiqué, se disant "profondément déçu".

    "Nous devrons bien entendu prendre en compte les approches qui sont désormais en circulation à Washington et prendre les mesures nécessaires pour assurer notre sécurité", a poursuivi le ministère.

    Les Etats-Unis ont annoncé vendredi vouloir se doter de nouvelles armes nucléaires de faible puissance, mettant en avant notamment le réarmement de la Russie dans le domaine. Cette annonce fait craindre aux experts une relance de la prolifération et un risque plus élevé de conflit nucléaire.

    Moscou a pour sa part dénoncé samedi "une tentative de remettre en question (son) droit à la légitime défense". "Nous espérons que Washington reste conscient du niveau de danger élevé que représentent ces directives d'un point de vue de planification militaire pratique", poursuit le communiqué de la diplomatie russe.

  2. Rusia consideró hoy que la nueva doctrina nuclear de Estados Unidos puede provocar una carrera armamentista en el mundo, ya que supone una violación de los principios de disuasión estratégica.

    "Ahora, otros países también pueden comenzar a introducir modificaciones en sus doctrinas. La nueva doctrina nuclear de EEUU es un producto de los imperialistas americanos", dijo Leonid Slutski, jefe del comité de Asuntos Internacionales de la Duma o cámara de diputados.
