MISSILE DEFENSE

If attacked, Russia will respond with retaliatory strikes at US missile defense installations wherever they may be in the world, Russia's former Strategic Missile Forces' commander warned on Tuesday.

"Any military facility of the US global missile shield will become a primary target of a Russian counterattack in the event of a military aggression against this country," Viktor Yesin told RIA Novosti news agency.

The deployment of US missile defenses in Europe under the pretext of protecting America's European allies against an imaginary missile attack by Iran has been a major irritant in US-Russia relations.

Washington insists the European missile shield is not aimed against Russia, but refuses to provide any legal guarantees to Moscow that its missile defense systems in Europe are not directed at Russia's strategic nuclear deterrent.
