Russia Threatens Counter-Measures Over US Plans To Upgrade Weapons in Europe

Russia has threatened to take “countermeasures” if the United States goes ahead with the deployment of a new type of nuclear weapon in Germany, raising fears of a return to a Cold War arms race in Europe.

The Kremlin said plans reported by German media for the U.S. to upgrade its nuclear weapons arsenal in the country would be “a serious step towards raising tension” in Europe.

“Unfortunately, in the case of these plans – and we can say with certainty that they are moving towards realization – this can lead to a violation of the strategic balance in Europe,” said Dmitry Peskov, Vladimir Putin’s spokesman.

“Therefore, of course, that would require Russia to take counter-steps and countermeasures to restore balance and parity,” he added.

  • Obama’s legacy – anarchy and war in the Middle East, the destruction of W. Europe through mass Muslim immigration, and possibly now war with Russia. Surely, Obama is the most dangerous moron on earth.

      Don’t worry ! This is all for show.

      • Whose show do you mean? Obama’s or Putin’s?

          Both ways ! Putin is a very bright guy. He won’t have any problem reading this as a “bone” thrown to the hawks for Obama’s running away from the anti-Assad policy in Syria. Putin on the other hand must pretend that he takes the threat seriously for the benefit of his own hawks in the armed forces and the Duma.

      Not a viable proposition; the Russkies tend to be rather flighty.

    30 years ago, Reagan was able to see and raise the Russians on an arms race because our economy was far sounder than theirs and our present economy.
