There is no missile defense system in the world capable of repulsing the new nuclear missiles that are being developed in Russia, Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov said on Tuesday.
"We know exactly what we gain by developing such missiles. There is no defense from these missiles," Russian Information Agency Novosti quoted the minister as saying.
Speaking to journalists, he added that Russia does not intend to attack any state with the new weapons.
ok. they don't plan to use them, but they're unstoppable.
That's a really old story; has to do with allegedly new maneuvering capability of their ICBMs enabling them to evade countermeasures.
The good news is their guidance systems intended to activate such capability don't work - just as well as the countermeasures don't work either <G>
