The US missile defense system (ABM) will ultimately prove to be a colander and will not be able to protect the country from all Russian ballistic missiles. This was stated on the air of the Zvezda TV channel by the head of the Franklin Roosevelt Foundation for the Study of the United States at Moscow State University, Yuri Rogulev.

He said that the idea of creating a defensive anti-missile system appeared in the United States back in the 1980s. "Then they refused and came back again. All this costs a lot of money, " the expert added.

According to him, Washington almost immediately faced criticism, because " the missile defense system will never give the country a 100 percent guarantee." "Therefore, our people, of course, warned that if they (the United States-approx. "The tapes.<url> ") will continue to build this system and bring it closer to the borders of Russia, it will be forced to develop new weapons systems, which it has done, " Rogulev said.

In January, retired US Marine Corps officer Scott Cooper called the fifth-generation F-35 Lightning II fighter the main deterrent weapon for Russia and China. In his opinion, the US Air Force should increase the number of low-profile fighters and strategic bombers, which are distinguished by the ability to overcome the enemy air defense system (air defense), in order to deter potential opponents.

Earlier, in July 2020, the Pentagon announced the creation and improvement of missile defense systems by Moscow and Beijing, which poses a threat to the United States. The representative of the ministry stressed that the sphere of missile defense is an important component of the rivalry between the great powers, and Russia has very powerful military resources.
