Russia will begin to develop and deploy the missiles of short and middle ranges as soon as it gets a word about the development of these weapons in the U.S. Russian leader Vladimir Putin said so as quoted by his press office

"If Russia obtains reliable information whereby the United States completes the development of these systems and starts to produce them, Russia will have no option other than to engage in a full-scale effort to develop similar missiles. Of course, this will take time", the message said.
