Vladimir Putin Quote

In order to preserve a balance, while we aren't planning to build a missile defence of our own, as it's very expensive and its efficiency is not quite clear yet, we have to develop offensive strike systems. They [U.S.] should give us all the information about the missile defence, and we will be ready then to provide some information about offensive weapons.


Putin said that arms control talks between Moscow and Washington were proceeding in a positive way. (December 2009)
