Very interesting Iskander.
However, I read the article as follows: Russia will not create global system ABOUT, informs "Interfax".
In opinion ordering space armies general-colonel Vladimir Popovkina, in creation of such system is not present necessity. " We already once tried to
participate in race from the USA in occasion of the Strategic defensive initiative (the program of the SOYA) on creation of a umbrella from the
nuclear weapon. I, for example, consider, that it is unreal to make. In it there is no sense ", - it has told.
According to поповкина, from rocket impacts it is necessary to protect large groupings of armies and the most important objects, avoiding
retraction in race of antimissile arms.
" Now it is impossible to approve, that creation of absolutely reliable global system somewhere is possible ABOUT. The world scientific and technical
reserve is not ready to it yet ", - the commander has noted.

Of course Colonel-General Vladimir Popovkina is head of the so called Russian 'Military Space Forces' and by THAT we should read, recon sats and
ballistic rocket forces - a bit like the 'NRO meets SAC'.
Another reason could be that those canny Ivans may have deployed the lasers they designed and developed at Sary Shagan [46°12'N 73°48'E] in the

I know you'll disagree Iskander - you always do.
