Russia to build new heavy ICBM by 2018 - Karakayev
by Staff Writers
Moscow (Voice of Russia) Dec 18, 2012


File image: Voyevoda.

Russia will have built a new heavy liquid-propellant intercontinental ballistic missile by late 2018, a missile that will prove largely superior to all of its predecessors, including the world's most powerful strategic missile Voyevoda, (NATO reporting name SS-18 Satan), in terms of combat effectiveness and the ability to penetrate the US missile defence system.

This came in a statement for journalists by the Commander of the Russian Strategic Missile Forces Sergei Karakayev.

He pointed out that it is the deployment of the US global missile defence system, a system that grows more powerful each year that prompted Russia to think of counteraction.

US to intercept Russian ICBMs in Europe - Karakayev
The missile defence system that the United States plans to deploy in Europe will be able to intercept Russian intercontinental ballistic missiles, deployed in European Russia.

This came in a statement at a news briefing in Moscow last week by the Commander of the Russian Strategic Missile Forces Sergei Karakayev.

The US claims that the European antimissile system will counter Iran's missile threat.

But it is only Russia that has ICBMs in Europe. In this context, we understand that the US antimissile system will target Russia, since ICBMs and submarine-based ballistic missiles are the backbone of Russia's nuclear containment force.

Russian missiles capable to resist any anti missile defense system
Moscow (Voice of Russia) Dec 16 - Under any possible scenario the Russian Strategic Missile Forces will be capable to withstand the potential of any missile defense system and to ensure fulfillment of tasks, Sergei Karakayev, Commander of the Russian Strategic Missile Forces, has told today.

According to Colonel-General Karakaev, the Russian Strategic Missile Forces has six types of missile launches, both stationary and mobile, including the fifth generation Yars and Topol-M launchers, in arsenal.

Karakaev noted that effectiveness of any strike force suggests a sustainable resistance to any outer impact, including a nuclear one.

Besides, an effective strike force should be capable to cause unacceptable damage, even under the threat from an anti-missile defense system.

Moscow (Voice of Russia) Dec 18, 2012
Russia's Strategic Missile Forces turned 53 years old on Monday. In the Cold War era, they acted as a deterrent to preclude war. Today, they act as a counterweight to America's global domination plans. They are also on standby in case the boisterous American mentality prompts the US to attack. The Forces account for two thirds of Russia's nuclear weapons. Possessing a big arsenal of interc ... read more
