US missile shield questioned

April 25, 2007

The director of Moscow’s Center for Policy Studies, Dr Vladimir Orlov, told ISN Security Watch that “Russia is suspicious that this is only a stage of a greater American plan to surround Russia, first from the west and then from the south – in Georgia and the Ukraine. And with the final stage of paralyzing Russia’s own strategic missile capabilities.”

A US satellite has launched that will gather information that could be used for a future missile defence system in space. The satellite will study rocket exhaust plumes to glean information that would help future interceptors home in on enemy missiles.
