"We have seen the report of the Missile Defense Agency with the US military about the tests held in the Pacific Ocean on November 17, the task was to launch off sea a Standard Missile-3 of 2A modification at a target that simulated an intercontinental ballistic missile,” Zakharova told a briefing in Moscow.

“This is a new proof of dangerous and destabilizing policy of Washington on air defense, its clear anti-Russian sentiment," she added.
