Russian General Anatoly Mazurkevich Considers It Impossible To Create An Efficient System Of National Anti-missile Defense In The Usa

On Thursday Lieutenant-General Anatoly Mazurkevich, chief of the General Department of international military cooperation of the Russian Defense Ministry, stated to journalists that the US administration's decision to unilaterally withdraw from the ABM treaty of 1972 was not unexpected for Russia and did not present a real threat to its security. While stating that he mentioned appropriate statements of Russian President Vladimir Putin and Defense minister Sergei Ivanov on this matter. Mazurkevich indicated that Russian leadership confidence in the lack of threat for national security was based on Russian missile and nuclear potential which would still for many years serve as a reliable guarantor of Russia's defense capability. Mazurkevich was also confident that it was impossible to create a really efficient system of national anti-missile defense, moreover that the existing American technologies "were presently only on paper".

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
