Russia is developing missiles designed to avoid being hit by space-based missile defence systems that could be deployed by the United States, a top Russian general was quoted as saying Monday.

“Development is now under way on the combat outfitting of missiles whose flight falls outside the range of space-based missile defence systems,” Nikolai Solovtsov, the commander of Russia’s missile forces, told Interfax news agency.

Solovtsov called the project a countermeasure to what he described as US plans to deploy weapons in space, according to Interfax.
