Putin’s Russia, according to McCain, broke the Treaty between the USSR and the USA on the elimination of intermediate and short range.
The deployment of cruise missiles Russia is a significant military threat to the US armed forces, according to American Senator John McCain.
“Russia to deploy cruise missiles with nuclear warheads land-based in violation of the Treaty on the elimination of intermediate and short range is a significant military threat to U.S. forces and our NATO allies,” stressed the Senator.
The U.S. Congress, continued McCain, the last two defense bills made it clear that a breach of contract on the part of the Russian Federation demands a meaningful response from the United States.
Therefore, according to a U.S. Senator, for the new administration to trump it is time to take urgent action to strengthen the deterrent position in Europe and to defend allies.
“In a broader sense, we need to continue the ongoing modernization of nuclear forces of the United States and be prepared to counter nuclear doctrine of Russia, which calls to use nuclear weapons first,” – said McCain.
Earlier The New York Times wrote that Russia has secretly deployed a new cruise missile, despite complaints from American officials that it violates the control reference to the Treaty on the elimination of intermediate and short range, which helped to stop the arms race.
