US can now destroy Russia with a preventive nuclear strike and intercept Russian missiles

US can now destroy Russia with a preventive nuclear strike and intercept Russian missiles



In the United States, an important stage in the modernization of the US nuclear arsenal is completed: a subsystem is built, which is responsible for recharging the warhead in order to extend its life, the National Interest reported .

Experts point out that improved warheads (the main component of which was a new fuse) with Russia's lack of an early warning system for a strike, as well as a powerful US submarine fleet that far exceeds Russia's - provides America with a guaranteed victory in a preventive war.

In addition, the United States is already ready for serial production of modernized ballistic missile SM-3 Block 2A, which neutralize Russia's missile attack.

Specialists describe the new fuse as a breakthrough in the field of US nuclear weapons: now, according to nuclear scientists, America's chances of suppressing the enemy's strategic capabilities have seriously increased.

Thanks to a new super-detonator designed to destroy fixed targets, the warhead will detonate in such a way that the fireball arises at a higher altitude and at the same time can capture the target much more efficiently. Warheads that would otherwise fly too far from the target, now, thanks to a new detonation system, will explode directly above the target, experts say.

The result of using this explosion scheme will be a significant increase in the probability that a warhead will explode sufficiently close to the target to eliminate it, even if the accuracy of the missile warhead system does not improve.

Experts believe that US nuclear submarines with nuclear missiles are a key factor for the victory over Moscow.

The main nuclear potential of the United States is located on submarines with ballistic missiles. The US Navy has 14 such Ohio-type submarines, each carrying 24 Trident II D5 ballistic missiles. The latter has a maximum range of 11,300 km and has a detachable warhead with individual guidance units that are equipped with thermonuclear charges of 475 and 100 kilotons.

The US will receive a nuclear arsenal, which is intended to win a sudden attack on Russia, believe in Moscow. Russian experts indicate that the degree of lethality and firepower of American nuclear forces has increased significantly while the number of warheads in the US and Russia has decreased.

This led to a sharp increase in the vulnerability of Russian nuclear forces in the face of a preemptive strike by the United States.

According to experts, as a result of the reduction of warheads with the simultaneous increase in the nuclear potential of the United States, it turned out that the US military can now destroy all Russian ICBM mines, using for this disarming strike only 20 percent of the total number of warheads that exist in land and sea nuclear arsenals USA.

In addition, Russia does not currently have such a space infrastructure that would allow it to record the launch of nuclear missiles around the world. Currently, only 2 out of 12 Russian nuclear warning satellites are orbiting in orbit. This means that the Kremlin leaders have only 15 minutes to decide whether to launch a counter-attack or risk losing the opportunity for strategic nuclear deterrence.

Russia may terminate its membership in the European Court of Human Rights - the media

Russia may terminate its membership in the European Court of Human Rights - the media

To date, the Russian Federation is considering the possibility of freezing its participation in the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) of the Council of Europe (CE) and reducing its contributions to the organization.

This is reported by the newspaper Izvestia, with reference to several high-ranking sources in the State Duma of the Russian Federation.

Thus, the amount on which it is planned to reduce the total amount of payments in the CoE will be equal to that which is intended for the work of the court (it can be about $ 7-10 million)..

It is noted that the final decision will be made on October 27, when the first reading of the Russian budget for 2018 will take place in the lower house of parliament.

"There has been a paradoxical situation in the Council of Europe: the ECtHR can decide on Russia, and Moscow, in its turn, will not influence the work of the body. If Russia is not returned the right to express its position during the election of the judges of the ECHR, it will stop paying and freezes its membership", - quoted the publication a high-ranking source in the State Duma.

In Turkey, an ex official of the Russian army who fought for ISIL was detained

Law enforcement officials in Turkey detained a former Russian army officer Denis Khisamov on suspicion of involvement in the Islamic State terrorist group (ISIL).

It was reported by RBC with reference to the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) of Tajikistan.

The reason for the Russians to be extradited to Tajikistan was the fact that he traveled to Turkey under a false passport of a citizen of that country, and then joined the militants of the "Islamic State".

Thus, Khisamov took an active part in the fighting in the territory of Iraq and Syria, but when trying to return through Turkey back to Russia, he was detained by a Turkish police with a false passport.

The head of the press center of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Tajikistan Umarjoni Emomali explained that Khisamov at the interrogation reported that he resigned from the Ministry of Defense of Russia on his own request in 2009. Prior to that, he served as the Chief of the State Secret Service for the Protection of the State Secret of the 274th Scientific Center of the Ministry of Defense of Russia, and then at the disposal of one of the Departments of the General Staff.

"Heamusov Denis was going to return to the Russian Federation to commit a crime," the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Tajikistan stressed.
