 US plans to deploy Sadr Russian experts in Romania: heightening tensions

Overseas Network, April 12 - The U.S. European Command and NATO have released news that the U.S. military will temporarily deploy the Sade missile defense system in Romania in the near future. Russian experts believe that the U.S. move will lead to further deterioration of relations between Russia and NATO.

Russias newspaper quoted the European Command of the United States as saying that at NATOs request, the United States will temporarily deploy the Sade missile defense system during the updating of the Aegis Ashore missile defense system in Romania. The U.S. Sade Anti-Missile Systems Force came from the 69th Air Defense Artillery Brigade of the U.S. Armys 32nd Air Defense and Anti-Missile Command in Texas.

NATO also released a message on the 12th to explain the matter. According to Russian RT TV on the 12th, NATO said that the land-based Aegis missile defense system will be updated for a long time this summer. Therefore, the United States will fulfill its commitment to provide NATO with missile defense by temporarily deploying Sades anti-missile system in Deveselu, southern Romania. The U.S. military deployment will be completed in a few weeks, and the forces concerned will be under NATO command and political control of the North Atlantic Council.

Konstantin Sivkov, President of the Russian Institute of Geopolitical Studies and Doctor of Military Sciences, told the Russian Federal News Agency (Riafan) that because Russia has always strongly opposed the deployment of NATO missile defense systems around Russia, the decision of the US to deploy the Sade anti-missile system will intensify tensions between Russia and NATO.

According to Sivkovs analysis, the Sad anti-missile system is an integrated missile defense equipment with a range of up to 1000 kilometers and a very fast warhead speed, which will make Moscow uneasy. But Russia also has its own advantages, such as Russias Iskander tactical missile system, which is not easily attacked by American missiles because of its small distribution area. Because of the similarity of the characteristics of the two anti-missile systems, the reason why the U.S. military deployed Sade may be that it hopes to use the Aegis system to launch a more advanced BGM-109 Tomahawk cruise missile in the future.

Romania insisted that the Aegis system would not introduce offensive elements. According to Russian Tass News Agency, Romanias National Defense 11 explained that this ground-based Aegis renewal mission will not introduce offensive elements, nor change its defensive nature. The deployment of Sades defense system in Romania was temporary until the completion of the Land-based Aegis update.

Russias Viewpoint in this regard, although NATO has always claimed that the United States deployed anti-missile systems in Europe is only defensive, but in fact, these systems can easily become offensive weapons if necessary. Russian President Vladimir Putin has repeatedly said that the deployment of anti-missile systems by the United States in Romania is a serious violation of the Russian-American agreement. Victor Bondarev, chairman of the Defense and Security Commission of the Russian Federation Commission, said earlier that Russia had deployed Tu-22M3 supersonic bombers at air bases in Crimea in response to the deployment of missile defense systems by the United States in Romania. According to reports, the full name of Sades anti-missile system is theatre high altitude regional defense system (THAAD), which is a land-based high altitude long-range anti-missile system and belongs to the U.S. global missile defense system. The missile system, which is developed and manufactured by American Aerospace manufacturer Lockheed Martin, is a vehicle-mounted mobile deployable missile system with unique capabilities to intercept short-range, medium-range and long-range intercontinental ballistic missiles both inside and outside the atmosphere.
