3. I order the Ministry of Defense to deploy radar missile warning system in the city of Kaliningrad.
Such a forward deployed system would give advanced warning of an attack on Russia. Its position would leave it vulnerable to a first strike, but that in itself would be warning enough... NATO is hardly going to attack an ABM radar station in Kaliningrad if it has no intention to attack Russia and use its ABM system to hide behind.
4. A strategic missile facilities shield will be the first to be strengthened as part of setting up Russia’s Air and Space defense system.
So the S-500 will be well funded and likely fairly widely deployed and VKKO forces will also likely be well funded from the start, though the initial focus will be from ballistic missile attack.
3. Russia’s Navy and strategic missiles troops will be equipped with a cutting-edge ABM penetration device and super efficient warheads.
So perhaps Ironsightsnipers idea of a naval Iskander missile might become a reality. It would be the ideal missile to base an ABM system penetrating missile on. Perhaps the Kirovs might get more extensive upgrades than previously thought... 80 tubes for the UKSK might change to 64 tubes with 8 x UKSK launchers plus perhaps a 10-12 tube naval 2,000km range Iskander ABM system buster system?
Plus of course the Redut SAM system reduced in tube numbers to allow a few S-500 tubes to defend from BM attack.
[quote]4. I have ordered the country’s military to develop measures enabling the troops to destroy ABM control and information systems in the event of an attack.[quote]
Which pretty much could be handled with a combination of manouvering hypersonic missiles (ie longer range Iskander) and stealthy cruise missiles that could both be land ship and air launched weapons.
The abovementioned measures are relevant, efficient and low-cost,
Clearly a dig at the US ABM system in Europe which is not relevant (due to Iran not having nuclear weapons or ICBMs), inefficient... because it will not stop anything but a ballistic missile they don't even have, and of course this ABM system in Europe will cost hundreds of billions of dollars and still not be guaranteed to work.
5. If the abovementioned are not enough, Russia will deploy cutting –edge ballistic missile systems providing for total destruction of US ABMs in Europe. One of the measures will be deploying The 9K720 Iskander mobile theater ballistic missile system in a special area in Kaliningrad.
I rather suspect this part will include a withdrawl from the INF treaty.
'Russia has the right to halt further disarmament and arms control efforts if it doesn’t reach an agreement with the US on the ABM issue.
And if it doesn't then this certainly means the end of the INF treaty.
'Taking into account the fact that offensive and defensive weapons are closely interconnected, Russia may have legal grounds to walk out of the START-3 and this is stipulated by the Treaty.
Just common sense really.
The US can solve this largely by signing a document guaranteeing that the European ABM system will not be directed against Russia.
They wont of course, because they are not going to limit themselves... this system will be expensive and will only grow in cost and capability.
Personally I think naval based systems would be far more useful anyway... far more mobile.
