"We'll be able to organize anti-missile defense ... This is our response to the U.S. anti-missile defense," said Kirill Makarov, deputy commander of Russia's airspace defense forces, in an interview with the state-run Russia-24 TV channel.
The S-500 systems are designed to destroy enemy's aircraft, middle-range and strategic missiles.
Makarov said that 10 S-500 systems will be put into service within two years. This is a more advanced version of the S-400 systems currently in service.
On Thursday, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Russia would deploy three new regiments equipped with the S-400 surface-to-air missile systems next year, with more advanced radar stations to be launched.
