Russia does not recognize the US decision on suspension of validity of the Contract on liquidation of rockets of average and small range (the INF Treaty). This was stated by Deputy head of the Russian MFA Sergey riabkov in an interview to the magazine “international life”.
“We believe this action is null and void,” — said the Deputy Minister. In his opinion, the Treaty should be retained, a solution to the problem is to seek together through negotiations.
The decision to withdraw, however, has already been adopted by Washington and is the next step of the United States, noted Ryabkov. “From the statements of official U.S. individuals and from a tone that they keep in dialogue with us, it is derived explicitly,” — said the diplomat. Currently, according to him, the USA are just looking for excuses to free themselves from the limitations that imposes on them the INF Treaty.
Earlier in the USA explained the refusal to consider the missile, which the Russian side refused to destroy, so that you can not statically check the range of its flight.
The US President Donald Treabhair intention to withdraw from the agreement on 20 October 2018. Later, the US Secretary of state Mike Pompeo has officially accused Russia of violating the Treaty. Washington demanded that Moscow has returned to the terms of the agreement within 60 days, otherwise the action of the INF Treaty will be suspended. Russia believes these charges are false.
The INF Treaty does not allow parties to have ballistic missiles, land-based and cruise missiles with ranges between 500 and 5.5 thousand kilometers.
In the second half of 1970-ies the USA and the USSR started to deploy in Europe its nuclear weapon. The Soviet Union led the embattled “eurostrategies” complexes “pioneer”, and the United States group medium-range ballistic “Pershing-2” and winged “Tomahawks”.
