Russia Nuclear Horn Refuses to Back Down

RUSSIA: Vladimir Putin warned the US that missiles in Alaska heighten the threat of nuclear war
The Russian leader laid down the ultimatum as he promised Russian military build-up will continue in the face of US missiles deployments in Alaska and Europe.
Putin warned the US missiles defence systems are “one of the most serious problems in modern times”.
Putin said: “While what we are doing is of local nature, what the US is doing in Alaska is of global nature. A missile defense system is being developed there.
“This system is one of the most serious problems of the modern times in the security sphere. It’s not just a defense system, it’s a part of the nuclear potential brought to the periphery.”
He added: “This is not something that prevents a nuclear missile attack, but something that minimises the so-called retaliatory strike.”
Putin stressed Russia doesn’t intend to be at war or compete with the US – but would respond to threats from the Pentagon.
But he called for “cooperation” between the powers – as US President Donald Trump is thought to want to warm up relations with Russia.
Putin said: “Russia and the US are nuclear powers. We have a special responsibility to the planet, to the international community for the international security.
“Of course, the sooner we establish cooperation in the military sphere, the better.”
