中广网 Beijing on January 7 news (reporter Li Yan) Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said recently that Russia needs to develop offensive weapons systems, in order to maintain and develop anti-missile system is the strategic balance between the United States. Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said recently that nuclear weapons have the ability to protect Russia’s national interests, Russia will continue to research and development, including delivery vehicles, including new weapons systems, this issue, “a South Military Forum”, Professor Jin on the Putin said Russia needed to develop offensive weapons systems in order to maintain the strategic balance with the United States issued a unique insight.
worried that the U.S. anti-missile system Russia will break the strategic balance between the two countries
Reporter: Some analysts believe that Russia, U.S. will soon resume the reduction of offensive The new strategic arms treaty negotiations, Russia intends to continue to press the United States forced the United States in the final stages of negotiations to make concessions on this issue how did you see?
Jin Yinan: Russia, its large-scale offensive weapons development never stop, this is not a new problem. Of course, Putin moved today to new ideas where? He is new is that: The United States strongly enhance ballistic missile defense system in Europe, in such circumstances, Russia made a very strong representation. Russia’s meaning is: I must keep my nuclear deterrent, your anti-missile system is actually intended to reduce my nuclear deterrence, nuclear deterrence, then, after my lower bound on the formation of a unilateral deterrence, deterrence to me you can, I deter you ineffective, or effectiveness greatly reduced.
then in such circumstances, Russia should develop offensive weapons. I think Putin would have to add a footnote, that offensive weapons are not generally offensive weapons, is able to complete penetration, can break the missile defense system the United States offensive weapons.
Russia’s arsenal have a lot of offensive weapons, Russia has no shortage of offensive weapons, but he lacks what? Can effectively break the U.S. ballistic missile defense system that offensive weapons, referring to Putin and Medvedev are mainly of such weapons. Like Russia, the recent development of the Topol missile systems and submarine-launched Bulava system are such systems. Not only can carry multiple warheads, decoys and multiple warheads can be released, and multiple warheads to orbit maneuver, he used this method to complete penetration. Russia, thereby maintaining the United States, the European nuclear deterrent.
From this point of view, I think Russia’s so-called offensive weapons, that he is in the 21st century under the conditions of offensive weapons, the U.S. strategic missile defense system even if the establishment is good, even to complete basic case, Russia’s offensive weapons, that does not put your defense seriously, I was able to completely penetrate completely sure to protect Russia’s strategic deterrence, the relative balance between the two sides reached capacity.
this problem may be more confusing, the United States in the establishment of a defensive system, the Russian offensive in the establishment of the system. Seems to be anti-American, Russia is attacking. I think at this point there must be around a bend. Past the two sides are balanced, you can destroy me, I can destroy me. Now the U.S. is still able to destroy Russia, and Russia to destroy the United States have a big problem, because the United States now is to establish a relatively perfect system, ballistic missile defense system, the establishment of its shield.
just like a person, both the original sword, both sides are able to kill each other. Now the party is holding the shield, sword, shield the other is not only a sword. On this side say, I must be able to forge a sword piercing the shield of your sword, it is to enhance mutual deterrence. Russia’s surface is aggressive, in fact, what is? It is a deterrent to keep their system is not destroyed, he said, I can cut to be able to forge a broken shield your sword, this is what. The two sides finally reached to maintain such a balance, you do not dared to touch me, I do not dare to touch you.
Russia, U.S. reach a reduction of offensive strategic arms treaty is the inevitable choice, but it will not weaken the two sides have maintained mutual destruction of the motives and the will
Reporter: Do you think Russia, U.S. reach a reduction of strategic offensive arms treaty’s prospects how?
Jin Yinan: I think the next step the two sides within certain limits, to some extent to achieve this Treaty, from the interests of both parties is also essential, is an inevitable choice.
too many warheads the two sides, both sides of the vehicles too much, to both sides created a great burden. Warheads to be updated to update the means of delivery, to both sides of the economy, both in military spending have caused a great burden. The two sides be able to destroy each other many times there is no need, once is enough to destroy, destroy and destroy one hundred times the effect is the same. The two sides have burdens, it is the needs of both sides, so that under certain conditions, the two sides reach an agreement, both sides to reduce the number of warheads to reduce the number of vehicles is possible. But the two sides should maintain a complete deterrent to destroy each other, which is in the affirmative. Will not be reached because the strategic arms limitation treaty reduced to a few articles on the two sides have maintained mutual destruction of the motive and will.
