Putin says if United States builds missiles, so will Russian Federation

U.S. signals it will suspend nuclear treaty with Russia after NATO finding

Former Russian lieutenant-general Evgeny Buzhinskiy said the terrifying weapons system is capable of penetrating anti-missile defences in the U.S. and Europe.

U.S. President Donald Trump previously threatened to pull out of the bilateral pact.

Moscow refused to acknowledge the existence of the missile system for four years. "But we also have to start to prepare for the fact that this treaty may break down".

"It is very bad and that is why we are trying to initiate negotiations with the Americans, sending these or those signal to see no reciprocity, due to various reasons".

The ACA also said the United States must take steps to allay Moscow's concerns over Aegis missile interceptors in Eastern Europe including transparency measures to reduce fears that the launchers could be used for offensive missiles.

His warning may give Trump pause for thought as he edges closer to unilaterally withdrawing from the INF Treaty, which prohibits the deployment of intermediate range ground-based missiles.

President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday dismissed United States claims Russian Federation is violating a major Cold War treaty limiting mid-range nuclear arms, as a senior general lashed out at Washington's attempts to "contain" Moscow.

When signed in 1987, the INF treaty was lauded as a major safeguard for global security since they eliminated shorter-range missiles that take just a few minutes to reach their targets.

It has prevented the deployment of U.S. nuclear-tipped missiles to Europe since its inception.

U.S. signals it will suspend nuclear treaty with Russia after NATO finding

The creation of a solid radar field near the borders of Russia has been completed, this guarantees the detection of ballistic missiles from all directions, the Chief of the Russian General Staff, Gen. Valery Gerasimov said.

NATO foreign ministers agreed late Tuesday with the United States that Russian Federation is in "material breach" of its obligations under the INF Treaty on nuclear weapons agreed between Washington and Moscow - a decision that could pave the way for an allied response.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told NATO allies on Tuesday that the U.S.is setting a two-month deadline for Russian Federation to return to compliance with the INF treaty before carrying out President Donald Trump's threat in October to withdraw from the accord.

Until then, Pompeo said, the U.S. would not "test or produce or deploy any systems" that would breach the treaty.

According to a leaked memo published by the Washington Post, Bolton has ordered the Pentagon to "develop and deploy ground-launched missiles at the earliest possible date". In 2017, after the United States released the name of the missile system, Russian Federation admitted to its existence but said it was in compliance with the treaty. "It is now up to Russian Federation to preserve the INF Treaty".

"Our immediate task should be to work with our European allies to bring [Russia] back into compliance, not to unilaterally withdraw from the Treaty", US House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee Ranking Member Eliot Engel said on Tuesday.

Under the arms control treaty, signed in 1972 by the former United States president Richard Nixon Soviet Union leader Leonid Brezhnev, the number of anti-ballistic missile (ABM) complexes were limited.

The last time the USA withdrew from a major arms treaty was in 2002, when President George W Bush pulled the United States out of the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty, which banned weapons created to counter ballistic nuclear missiles.

Russia's new SSC8 missile system is of major concern to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies. "You as military professionals must understand that the target for Russian retaliation won't be USA territory but the countries where the intermediate-range missiles are deployed".
