Despite the "mythical" Iranian nuclear threat becoming a thing of the past, the US-sponsored ballistic missile defense system is still being built in Eastern Europe, Russian President Vladimir Putin lamented on Thursday, according to Sputnik. "A mythical Iranian nuclear threat, which was used as a justification for construction of a ballistic missile defense, has become a thing of the past, but the facilities of missile defense structures are still being constructed in Eastern Europe." In July 2015, Iran and major powers signed a historic deal to guarantee Tehran's nuclear activities will remain peaceful in exchange for sanctions relief.
