MOSCOW, 9 Nov — RIA Novosti. The ex-chief of General staff of the Strategic Missile Troops (1994-1996) colonel general Victor Yesin in an interview to the Zvezda newspaper has explained why the Russian system of automatic reciprocal nuclear attack "Perimeter" can be useless in case of the military conflict.© the RIA Novosti / Stringer to Pass into an image bank of media have explained why Russia doesn't need new weapon for destruction СШАПо to Yesin's opinion, after withdrawal of the USA from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF Treaty) the Russian Perimeter system (in the West it is known as Dead Hand — "A dead hand") can lose the efficiency. He has said that this system functions and has undergone modernization. "But when it will work, we will already have few means — we will be able to launch only those missiles which will survive after the first blow of an aggressor" — Yesin considers. The USA will be able to achieve it if they place ballistic missiles of average range which break the contract INF Treaty in Europe. By means of such rockets they will be able to destroy the main part of the Russian rocket means in the European part, and to intercept the others on a flight trajectory by means of the missile defense, he has noted. © Depositphotos/curraheeshutter the Expert has described the beginning of possible nuclear war of Russia with СШАЕсин also has emphasized that in the current conditions of Russia it is necessary to revise the military doctrine and in an expedited manner to market medium-range missiles, having added that in a short time it can be done on the basis of the three-stage Yars rocket. "But if it is frank, in Europe we meanwhile have no effective answer to the American medium-range missiles. If the USA begins to develop the rockets in Europe, nothing will remain to us how to refuse the doctrine of reciprocal and counter blow and to pass to the doctrine of pre-emptive strike" — Yesin has said. At the same time he considers that Russia should place emphasis on development of hypersonic weapon, answers to which in the West yet aren't present. © the Military expert called the Russian Defense Ministry "the guaranteed way of destruction of the USA" "But the main thing as it is represented to me, it is necessary to increase hypersonic means — instantly to answer the opponent. The grozny weapon which you have the is less probability of the military conflict" — Yesin has summed up the result. Earlier Donald Trump has reported that the USA will withdraw from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty. The president has said that America will increase nuclear potential until the others "do not recover", then Washington will be ready to stop this process and to start reduction arms ̆. He has explained that this message is addressed, first of all, to China and Russia.
