Putin THREATENS retaliatory STRIKES on European nations who host U.S. missiles

Russia may hack our elections. Can we stop

Russia may hack our elections. Can we stop

For several years, Washington has accused Russian Federation of violating the INF Treaty, which banned an entire class of nuclear and conventional missiles with ranges of 500 to 5,500 kilometers (310-3,400 miles).

Russian President Vladimir Putin speaks during a joint news conference with Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte following their talks at the Kremlin in Moscow, Russia Thursday.

"What apparently underlies this decision is a general antipathy by key members of the administration to negotiated agreements that in any way constrain USA weapons systems", said Gronlund.

The German government said it "regrets the planned withdrawal" and it will require discussion among Nato countries, calling the treaty "an important element of arms control". We can not have a Treaty between two parties that is only respected by one of them. In a sign that both sides are still seeking a way to improve ties, Bolton said previously suspended meetings between lower-level officials on counter-narcotics and counter-terrorism will soon resume.

Facing the hawkish Mr. Bolton, the Russian leader used some dark humor Tuesday to hint that Washington's real goal in withdrawing from the INF pact was to pursue more weapons development of its own.

And he cited Russia's alleged testing and deployment of weapons in violation of the agreement. "There is nothing left, but an arms race", Putin said. There was agreement from the US on the Pak-US cooperation but Washington persisted with its demand of more efforts by Islamabad and "fair play". "That's why it is urgent for the German government to now mediate between the USA and Russian Federation", he said. "Until they come to their senses". Even if they don't (find a solution), we have to do concentrate on how we can maintain ties with both. "NATO is in favor of arms control but to be effective, arms control agreements have to be respected by all parties", Stoltenberg added.

"Until people come to their senses, we will build it up", Trump told reporters Monday at the White House, referring to the USA arsenal.

The deal is simply unattractive to Trump, "given that China is not constrained and Russian Federation isn't following the rules, and that's enough for him to want out", Levine continued.




About 95 percent of the missiles available to the Chinese People's Liberation Army Rocket Force would violate the INF Treaty if Beijing were a signatory, Lee charges.

Speaking on a trip to Belarus, Shoigu also warned that Poland's plan to permanently host a us army division would affect regional stability and trigger a Russian response.

The landmark treaty was signed by Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev and led to almost 2,700 short- and medium-range missiles being eliminated. Those close-up weapons were seen as placing decision-makers on a hair trigger to decide whether to retaliate against a perceived attack.

Trump's announcement sparked concern globally, with the European Commission urging the United States and Russian Federation to pursue talks to preserve the treaty, and China calling on Washington to "think twice". In fact, the United States has officially declared Russian Federation to be in violation of the INF Treaty in every arms control compliance report it has released since 2014.

The Trump administration's 2018 Nuclear Posture Review (NPR), a yearly report that "determines the role of nuclear weapons" in United States security policy, cites concerns over "negative trends in the security environment", shared by its European Union allies, as a reason for a more aggressive nuclear policy in Europe.

Putin also alluded to the U.S. coat of arms showing a bald eagle holding a bundle of 13 arrows in one talon and an olive branch with 13 olives in the other and playfully asked Bolton if the eagle had "eaten all the olives".

"Hopefully, I will have some answers for you", he said.
