MOSCOW, Sept. 28 (Xinhua) -- Russia knows everything about the composition of the U.S. missile shield in Europe, the country's Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said here Friday.
"We have technical data about the number of interceptors, the set of launch-tracking tools and warning radars, the new platforms such as ground-based launchers and additional cruisers and destroyers," he told reporters.
The senior diplomat said there is still time for Russia and the United States to reach an agreement over the missile defense system, but a deadline is fast approaching.
Such an agreement should be reached before Washington starts the third phase of the missile shield deployment, Ryabkov said.
