Less than 48 hours after president Obama's decision to ditch Bush's ineffective, costly and imperialistic missile-defense system plan - The Russians are responding.
blackwaterdog's diary :: :: Russian deputy defence minister Vladimir Popovkin, announced this morning:
Russia will scrap a plan to deploy missiles near Poland because the U.S. no longer wants to place a missile-defense system in Eastern Europe, a Russian deputy defense minister said Saturday.
Vladimir Popovkin told Ekho Moskvy radio that Obama's move has made the deployment of Iskander short-range missiles in the Kaliningrad region unnecessary.
"Reason has prevailed over ambitions," Popovkin said. "Naturally, we will cancel countermeasures which Russia has planned in response."
