President Dmitry Medvedev has said Russia will aim its missiles at American defence sites in Eastern Europe if the US fails to address its concerns over plans for an anti-missile shield.

In a televised address, Mr Medvedev said his country may also exit the Start nuclear arms reduction deal if America fails to back down.

He said: "If the measures listed [in the statement] are not sufficient, Russia will deploy in the west and the south of the country advanced offensive weapons systems which will target the European component of the [US] missile defence network."

All military experts in Russia know that the shield doesn't pose a threat to Russia, whereas Mr Medvedev's suggestion does pose a threat. This is the irony of the situation.

The US wants a defence system in Turkey and Romania which it says will pose no threat to Russia and is aimed at protecting Eastern Europe from a rogue missile strike.

But the US has refused to give legally binding guarantees that the programme will not be aimed at Russia's nuclear defences under any circumstances.

Moscow-based political analyst Andrei Piontkovsky said: "It is well known that the Start is extremely important for Russia, because the agreement cuts the amount of American nuclear arms.

"So this is just stupidity, to exit the Start treaty like this.

"It shows that the statement comes from a very ignorant person, a person who doesn't understand what he is talking about."

He believes the politician's words could cause more problems than the proposal itself.

"All military experts in Russia know that the shield doesn't pose a threat to Russia, whereas Mr Medvedev's suggestion does pose a threat," he added.

"This is the irony of the situation. That the proposal itself doesn't present a threat - Russia's reaction to it does."

The US has said it will continue with its plans without Russia's backing.

Russia Isn't The One Pushing For A NWO Dictator...They Are Only Responding To Provocation. It's Called Self Defence. The U.S. Has Refused To Give Legally Binding Guarantees That The Programme Won't Be Aimed At Russia's Nuclear Defences Under Any Circumstances. The Only One That Can Stop The NWO Dictator Is Russia.
