The missile program of Iran is a threat to both the countries of Europe and for Russia, the Minister of Ecology and Affairs of Israel, Zeev Elkin, told RIA Novosti.

“When Iran is developing ballistic missiles today, we are talking about missiles that can reach Moscow, not just Tel Aviv,” Elkin begin.

“Today, Iran is developing missiles capable of reaching almost any point in Europe and many points in Russia,” Elkin stated on the sidelines of the SPIEF.

“I don’t think anyone has an interest in a country in which religious Islamic fanatics rule with such missile capabilities, not to mention, in the long term, nuclear warheads on these missiles,” the minister added.

In Iran, they have repeatedly stated that they consider it their natural right to strengthen the defense forces, including in the field of missile technology.

Not at all if you look at the map of Russian anti-ballistic defences and where mobile units were relocated just after the Iranian tests last summer!
So we have Russian ABMs moved on potential trajectories with missiles coming from North-Korea or… Iran!
And let’s be clear, Russia is far too big to have a total coverage, there are even many areas without any radar coverage at all!
So where Russians move their mobile units are definitively a good barometer to get where they estimate there is risk!

So be sure they’re concerned by Iranian ballistic missile tests far more than they show it in public! Let’s be clear : everybody is OK to trade and negotiate with Rouhanni, BUT… Investigate the links between Khamenei and the Muslim Brotherhood snakes! IRGC is his private army, he acts… Read more »
