Vladimir Putin: Russia is ready for “Star Wars”

February 18 President Putin made a statement that Russia can obtain its own Missile Defense System.
”For many years we have been elaborating Missile Defense System. At one point we can move to practical work on constructing the new systems (of Missile Defense)”.
