    Russian Strategic Missile Forces will parry all nuclear attacks and punish the enemy with a devastating retaliatory strike.

    The Russian Strategic Missile Forces are prepared to shield the country from a nuclear attack under any circumstances, the SMF Central Command’s chief said.

    “If we have to accomplish a task of repelling a “lightning-speed” nuclear strike, this objective will be attained within a prescribed period”, Andrei Burbin told RSN Radio on Saturday. He added the SMF are ready to deliver a retaliatory nuclear strike “unhesitatingly”.

    He emphasized that the geographic position of Russia’s missile units protects them from destruction by “any global strike”.

    The Major General also said that the SMF are successfully implementing the rearmament plan. In 2020, 98 percent of the SMF systems will be new.

    Currently, more than 6,000 people are on daily duty in the SMF of Russia.
