What Eastern section of NATO? Who cares what they think? This was a proposal not for a joint Eastern NATO-Russian system (and most of the Eastern NATO members were yet to even join NATO back then), but for a joint US-Russian missile defense system and such a proposal was made at the beggining of the last decade. You can find material on it if you look through the archives of RIA Novosti, but my own memory serves me well enough. If parts of it were to be based in Poland, Romania, etc... then sure, they would have a say in it - but there is hardly any guarantee that they would have been. More likely, those facilities now being built at great expense in the Czech Republic, Romania, etc... would simply have been built on the basis of Russian facilities & technologies in Russia and the former-USSR region.I see. The joint missile system would be a bit controversial, especially in the eastern section of NATO, but that's beyond the point at this time.
I can't possibly fathom how an antimissile shield can be any threat to Russia. The Russians should pull their heads out of their ass and deal with their real problems, like, you know, corruption and ****ty economy and all that.
As for references, yeah they seem hard to come by; found some headlines here (can't read the articles though):
And another reference:
Arenīt you mistaking it for that Azerbaijan radar site proposal from 2007?
Anyway I think you get the gist of what I'm saying. The proposals in question would have likely employed a mixture of both American and Russian technologies, both terminal and exo-atmospheric, both Soviet-era Radar sites and new facilities, etc... to get a working, effective system in operation. The exact details are unknown and not necessarily all that important; rest assured that if the 2 countries did decide on it, they would figure out a way to get it done.
