Vladimir Kozin: And nuclear threats again

03 March 2016

In the end of February, the U.S. successfully carried out test-firing of LGM-30G Minuteman III for the second time this year, which took off from the Air Force base in California and splashed down near Kwajalein Atoll in the southern part of the Pacific Ocean. Those test-firings are a routine practice and, generally, do not cause any specific critical feedback: all nuclear states, which have mastered related technologies, perform regular testing of engines and ballistic missile equipment, Chief Advisor to the Russian Institute of Strategic Studies and member of the Gorchakov’s Club of Friends Vladimir Kozin writes about that on the pages of Krasnaya Zvezda.
