Russia in Full Compliance With INF Treaty, US Side Knows Well About It – Moscow

Sputnik – 04.12.2018

Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova responded to earlier statements by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg regarding the INF treaty by stating that Moscow strictly adheres to the provisions of the arms accord.

“Russia is following the provisions of the treaty and the American side knows this well,” she said.

Earlier, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg stated at a press conference in Brussels on December 4 that Russia should not miss its “last chance” to preserve the key arms control agreement between Moscow and Washington. Speaking at the same conference, Pompeo said that the US would suspend its adherence to the INF Treaty in 60 days unless Russia returns to full compliance with the agreement.

The US secretary of state also announced that the US would suspend its obligations under the arms treaty for 60 days until Russia “returns to full and verifiable compliance”. He also said that the US would not produce, deploy, or test any missile that violates the treaty during this period.

Earlier, US President Donald Trump accused Russia of violating the INF treaty by building prohibited missiles and vowed to abandon it in the near future. Moscow denied Washington’s accusations, saying it abides by the accord’s provisions. Russia has called the US plans to withdraw from the INF dangerous, saying that it could draw “entire regions of the world into an arms race”.

Previously, Russia has also accused the US of violating the INF treaty by deploying launchers capable of firing prohibited missiles in Europe, which is also prohibited by the INF.

  3. It’s truly hard to know the truth when your own government lies to you. That’s a hard thing. Betrayal is a very hard thing.

    • To come to understand that your whole life has been a gaslight by the very MEN who were supposed to care for you. That’s a terrible thing.

      I’m still here though. Don’t give up.

    • …and when I say government, I mean complicit media. And who is in charge of the media? Go ahead, guess. I want you to.
      I think it’s called fascism. Shekels, corporations, blah.

      At any rate, it all makes me sick.

  4. I still don’t see repentance or sorrow from all the folks who came here—the ones who genocided the humans that were already here. ‘OH WELL, it is what it is. Blase’, blase’. I didn’t do it.’

    I only see a sense of entitlement. Even back then, the U.S. never honored any treaty.
