Russia is “contemplating its response” to this “challenge.” That’s according to Russian president Vladimir Putin, speaking about the latest development of a US anti-missile system in South Korea.

Putin added he doesn’t believe US claims that the ABM system is not directed against Russia and is working on ways to counter it.

“This issue is a major concern for us and we have been constantly voicing it for decades. This disrupts the strategic balance in the world.  They have elements in their ABM system in Alaska and now in South Korea. Do we have to look at this helplessly and do the same in Eastern Europe? Of course not. We contemplate our response to this challenge,” Putin said while talking to foreign media on the sidelines of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum on Thursday. “But the world is silent and nobody listens to us.”

Putin considers the justification of ABM deployment in Asia-Pacific and the threat from North Korea equally dubious.

“It’s not about North Korea. If tomorrow North Korea declares it is stopping nuclear tests and canceling its rocket program, the US will continue building its ABM system under some new pretext or without one at all,” he said.

Putin has condemned North Korea’s latest missile launch as “dangerous” but warned against “intimidating” Pyongyang.

Putin said the Kurile Islands, a chain of islands in the Far East where Moscow and Tokyo have rival territorial claims, were “quite a convenient place” to deploy Russian military hardware to respond to such threats.

Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said last year Russia planned to deploy some of its newest missile defense systems and drones to the islands, part of a drive to rearm military units already stationed there. He has also spoke of Russia building a military base there.

“I don’t agree that we are unilaterally starting to militarize these islands,” said Putin. “It is simply a forced response to what is happening in the region.” Any talk of demilitarizing the islands could only occur once tensions in the entire region had been reduced, he said.

Tokyo and Moscow have long been locked in talks over the contested islands, known as the Northern Territories in Japan. Putin said Russia was alive to the danger that Japan might allow U.S. troops to deploy there if it struck a deal to hand over some of the islands to Tokyo’s jurisdiction.

Back in April, Putin sent troops and trains loaded with military equipment reinforcing the 11 mile-long border with North Korea.

Russian military spokesman Alexander Gordeyev stated, “The movement of military equipment means that authorities of our country are keeping up with the situation – and take appropriate measures.”

This brings to light why the Trump administration has had to handle the situation with North Korea far more carefully.
