Ozerov acknowledged that the situation around the DPRK can not but cause concern, and Russia is now doing everything to protect its territory. “Air defenses and fortified HQs in the far East region,” the MP stated to RIA Novosti.

According to Ozerov, the Russian military is closely watching what is happening around the Korean Peninsula, especially for areas of possible missile launches.

The Senator noted that the air defense system must ensure the safety of Russia in case of incorrectly laid coordinates of North Korean missiles, because “the probability of error here is quite high.”

However, there are more serious problems. “Air defenses, nuclear deterrence, keep Americans from more decisive steps”, — said Ozerov.
