UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (VOP TODAY NEWS) — Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the Defense Ministry and other government agencies on Friday to analyze the danger posed by a new US missile test and a willingness to reciprocate.
According to the transcript of his remarks posted on the Kremlin website, Putin said Russia would not stand idly by and that US talk of new missiles in the Asia-Pacific region “affects our fundamental interests because of its proximity to Russia’s borders”.
“As you know, we have never wanted, we do not want and we will not get involved in an expensive and destructive arms race,” he said.
