"We don't see the threat from Iran, and the missile defense system (in Europe) is still under construction, so we were right when we said that they were insincere, referring to the alleged Iranian nuclear threat in the construction of a missile defense system. So they once again tryied to cheat us ", - said Putin.

At the same time the Russian president said that Russian security services know what year the US missile armament will be having a range greater than 500 km. "And from that moment they begin to threaten our nuclear capabilities," - Putin warns.
