According to him, the radar field covers all the strategic aerospace directions and flight paths of ballistic missiles.

“All this (the creation of new radar stations – if) allowed for the first time in the history of new Russia to create the perimeter of our country, a continuous radar field system of missile warning at all strategic aerospace directions and for all types of flight trajectories of ballistic missiles,” – said Shoigu.

Shoigu also stated that the strategic nuclear forces of Russia are maintained at a level that guarantees the solution of problems of nuclear deterrence.

“They are supported at a level which is guaranteed to solve the tasks of nuclear deterrence. In the strategic Missile forces in combat-ready condition are 99% of launchers, of which 96% is in constant readiness for immediate launch,” – said the Minister of defence of the Russian Federation.
