the United States does not have the right to tell Russia what weapons she can create to ensure their own security. So the Deputy head of the Duma Committee on defense Andrei Krasov commented on the appeal of the USA to close projects “Petrel” and “Poseidon,” writes the Agency “Interfax”.
Krasov said that Russian weapons systems are purely for protection of Russia and its citizens. The MP drew attention to the fact that the US is demonstrably break international treaties, but thus feel entitled to impose restrictions on other countries.
a Similar view was expressed by the Deputy head of the Federation Council Committee on international Affairs Vladimir Jabbarov. He believes that Russia itself will understand, what kind of weapon her to create, and permission from anyone, our country will not ask. Moreover, the “Petrel” and “Poseidon” are used for protection.
the United States do not have anything like that, so they try to deprive other countries of unique weapons, said the Senator.
earlier, the special representative of the President of the United States arms control Marshall Billingsley called “Poseidon” and “the Petrel” “the dreadful project” and advised to “postpone indefinitely”.
“Petrel” is a cruise missile with a nuclear engine. She is able to stay airborne almost indefinitely. Poseidon – an underwater drone with a compact nuclear reactor. He moves faster and deeper than traditional submarines. While cruising the drone is also unlimited.
