"The perimeter system functions, it is even improved. 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. … If it is frank, in Europe we meanwhile have no effective answer to the American medium-range missiles" — Yesin has told. According to the ex-chief of staff of RVSN if the United States begin to develop the rockets in Europe, Moscow should refuse the doctrine of reciprocal and counter blow and to strike pre-emptive strike. Yesin has noted that Russia literally push to the similar decision as the emergence of the American rockets in country borders which is breach of contract about elimination of intermediate-range and short-range missiles (INF Treaty) can create too serious danger. With their help Washington will be able to destroy the majority of the Russian rocket means, and remained it will be possible to intercept by means of a missile defense system. According to Yesin, in present conditions Moscow should market medium-range missiles in the accelerated mode. It is possible to make it in a short time on the basis of the solid propellant intercontinental three-stage Yars rockets. For this purpose at them it is necessary to leave two steps. In addition, Russia should be engaged in development of hypersonic weapon instantly to answer the possible opponent, Yesin considers. Earlier the U.S. President Donald Trump has declared plans of Washington to leave the INF Treaty which has been signed between the USSR and the United States in 1987. He forbids use of ballistic and cruise missiles of land basing with a radius from 500 meters to 5,5 thousand km.
