Russia has lashed out at the United State over its military build-up around the world. The Russian Defense Ministry has warned that America’s global deployment of missile systems is posing a threat to world security. The ministry says such installments would trigger a new arms race. It also says the batteries are aimed at containing Russia and China. The comments come as the US is setting up the THAAD missile system in South Korea and sending more troops and military hardware to Russia’s western borders. China has strongly objected to the move, saying the system’s powerful radar can target its territory.
