MOSCOW, December 1 (RIA Novosti) - Russia has the technology for a strategic missile that could get around any existing or future anti-ballistic missile defense systems, the chief of the Russian General Staff said Thursday.

"This is a very expensive technology and its [industrial] production depends on the situation," Yury Baluyevsky said.

He said anti-ballistic missile defense systems were not efficient in their defense against existing types of weapons.
