The Plans of NMD Deployment and Global Instability: Geoeconomic Aspects / Missile Threats and Ballistic Missile Defense: Technology, Strategic Stability and Impact on Global Security
It is shown that the revision of the ABM Treaty and deployment of the US NMD system will result in growth of the numbers of missiles in other countries and also will give an impulse for increasing global instability. The new approach for revision of the ABM Treaty have to be concentrated first of all on the problems of maintenance of global stability, that is the new Treaty should to be concerned, besides problems of the NMD deployment and reduction of arms, mainly with geoeconomic and geofinancial problems. The optimal decision of the NMD problem can be obtained only with taking into account the more complex task of maintaining global stability. Apparently in the long run there is a keen need for deployment of mutual global missile defense system with participation of the USA, Russia and other nuclear countries. The deployment of a limited or non-strategic missile defense could be the first stage of this activity. The global control and the mutual соореrаtion in сrеаting а glоbаl missilе аnd missillе-tесhnоlоgy соntrоl systеm could be one of the first elements of this system. The public opinion and officials of the most developed countries, first of all, the USA should realize an aggravation of threat of global conflicts with weak economic potential of Russia. This threat can be eliminated only by substantial and mainly direct investments of the Western countries in reconstruction of the Russian economy.
