US belies placing missile defense systems in Ukraine

Oleksandr Turchynov, current Secretary of the National Security and Defence Council of Ukraine confided earlier this week his fear for the nuclear weapons, that are allegedly to be placed in the Crimea.

He also claimed that Ukraine will hold consultations to place missile defense systems on its territory to ensure security against nuclear threats.

However, US Department of State deputy spokesperson Marie Harf belied his words and assured that neither NATO nor the US don't have such plans.

"I don't think we are exactly sure what they were referring to," Harf said. "NATO ballistic missile defense plans are well-known. All existing and planned elements are on NATO territory."

NATO's missile defense is not directed against Russia, but against threats from the Middle East, Harf said.

"There is no offer or plan to place US or NATO ballistic missile defense systems in Ukraine."
