The American Ambassador was accused of dilettantism
The Russian defense Ministry criticized the U.S. Ambassador to Colombia Kevin Whitaker for his statement on strategic missile carriers Tu-160, which this week Russia moved to Venezuela.
“The Russian defense Ministry is not surprised by the amateurish statement by U.S. state Department officials on strategic missile carriers Tu-160 in the background of silence in professional experts from the Pentagon”, – said the official representative of the military Department major General Igor Konashenkov on 14 December, reports segodnya.ua.
He argues that this model of military aircraft is unsurpassed in developing speed, combat stress, the range of application and lack of access to means of defense “neither the United States nor any other NATO country”.
We will remind, after Russia sent to Venezuela two Tu-160 can carry nuclear weapons, U.S. Secretary of state Michael Pompeo called it a “waste” of public funds.
