Moscow. May 22. INTERFAX-AVN-NATO countries have "accumulated" more than 8 thousand cruise missiles, including long-range ones, said Yan Novikov, General Director of JSC "Concern of East Kazakhstan Region "Almaz-Antey".

"The main weapon of air and space attack is cruise missiles. Only a new type has accumulated more than 8 thousand from the NATO countries and the United States, "Novikov said on Saturday at the forum "New Knowledge".

He noted that a number of countries are working to increase the number of cruise missiles on carriers.

Novikov also said that the American X-37 spacecraft can carry nuclear warheads. "It is officially stated that these devices are created for various scientific purposes, well, and intelligence.

He recalled that the United States plans to increase the number of such devices by 2025. "This is a serious challenge," Novikov said.
