Referring to the American threat of installing a missile defense system in Europe, Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin has replied that Russia would respond with nuclear weapons if it was targeted by conventional American missiles.

Rogozin’s comments came shortly after President Vladimir Putin said Russia must upgrade its weapons systems in order to counter U.S. plans to institute the EPAA missile shield in Europe, which is allegedly designed to counter Iran’s nuclear build-up by aiming lots of missiles at Russia.

Russia was “preparing a response” to the U.S. threats, Rogozin said.
