Russian deputy PM: Strategy of US Prompt Global Strike illusory


NOVO-OGAREVO, October 30. The strategy of a Prompt Global Strike (PGS), broadly discussed in the US military, is illusory, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said on Friday upon the end of a meeting of the country's Security Council.

"The US strategists are for the first time beginning to have an illusory vision that they may achieve victory over a nuclear power in a non-nuclear war," Rogozin told journalists.

"This is nonsense, this will never happen," he said.

According to the official Russia is faced with the task of recreating the system of civil defense and safety facilities for the population.

"In essence, civil defence and safety facilities for the population are to be rebuilt anew and, most importantly, this activity should be streamlined properly," he said.
