NATO – News: Statement by NATO spokesperson Oana Lungescu on misleading and incorrect Russian statements, 16-Apr.-2015.
A number of misleading and incorrect statements about NATO were made by senior Russian officials in Moscow on Thursday 16 April.
NATO’s missile defence system is not designed or directed against Russia. It does not pose a threat to Russia’s strategic deterrent. Geography and physics make it impossible for the NATO system to shoot down Russian intercontinental missiles from NATO sites in Romania or Poland. Their capabilities are too limited, their planned numbers too few, and their locations too far south or too close to Russia to do so.
