BREAKING: NATO and E.U. decide on RUSSIA, BALKAN region, Afghanistan, and Kosovo!
Russian officials on Wednesday said of unspecified “retaliation” to the U.S. decision to walk out of a key treaty. Pompeo announced at a NATO meeting Tuesday that Washington will suspend its obligations under the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF) in 60 days, citing Russian “cheating.”
The U.S. has shared intelligence evidence with its NATO allies that it says shows that Russia’s new SSC-8 ground-fired cruise missile could give Moscow the ability to launch a nuclear strike in Europe with little or no notice.
The bilateral treaty between Washington and Moscow banned all land-based cruise and ballistic missiles with a range between 310 and 3,410 miles. Russia says the range of the new system does not exceed 310 miles.
NATO has backed up the Trump administration’s argument, agreeing that Russia is in violation of the treaty while Washington continues to adhere to it.
