The agency said it could not confirm if the second was destroyed. goal. “Missile defense testing is an opportunity to improve technology and demonstrate US defense power on the global stage. The stated mission of the Missile Defense Agency is to develop a multi-tiered system that could be used to protect the United States and its armed forces, as well as US allies. ", - reports the information agency "Reuters".

At the moment, it is not known about the location of Russian warships capable of delivering powerful electronic jamming in the test area of ​​the American missile defense system.
