A missile attack network would provide it with a missile attack, a network similar to that of just two countries, Russia and the United States.
Russia lends a helping hand
Russian President Vladimir Putin says Russia is helping China establish a missile attack network or system, a network capable of detecting attack missiles before they reach their targets.
Addressing members of the Valdai International Dialogue Club, Putin said the network would greatly enhance the defense capacity of the People's Republic of China, stressing that such a network is owned only by Russia and the United States.
Means of preventing a missile attack
The Russian missile warning network came into being in the 1970s. The network includes ground-based radars and satellites in space whose mission is to detect and track rocket launches.
The ground floor of the missile attack warning network includes two types of radar, Voronezh, a long-range radar that can detect intercontinental ballistic missiles 4,000 to 6,000 kilometers away, and Bodsolnokh, a near-range radar.
Russia recently developed a missile attack warning network. Russia's defense ministry announced in February that Russia had upgraded its missile attack warning network.
The modernization process included the installation of new radars at the borders of the state, which ensures the detection of ballistic missiles attacking from all sides. A similar network is now being established in China.

Strengthening international stability
Igor Kuruchenko, editor-in-chief of the National Defense magazine, says China is getting a powerful way to prevent the United States from launching its first pre-emptive strike.
Konstantin Sevkov, president of the Academy of Geopolitical Research, also believes that a missile attack warning network strikes America of the possibility of a surprise nuclear missile strike on China, which contributes to international stability.
