    US global defense missile system is the only threat to our country, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Wednesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russia feels unthreatened by China, but sees the US global defense missile system the only threat to the country, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Wednesday.

    "I don’t see any threats from China. Actually I don’t see any threats from the East except for one: the missile defense system that is the US global defense system that is being created in the United States, in the European theater, and the Northeastern Asian theater, which is wonderfully surrounding the borders of Russia," Lavrov said during an interview to Russian radio stations Sputnik, Ekho Moskvy, and Govorit Moskva.
