Russian Federation urges USA to destroy anti-missile shield in Romania

Russian Federation urges USA to destroy anti-missile shield in Romania

Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said on Tuesday that his country's president, Vladimir Putin, had ordered a "tit-for-tat" response in the wake of Trump's withdrawal from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty.

Ryabkov stated Moscow will keep attempting to try to achieve assertion regardless of the disappointment of the discussions, yet blamed Washington for overlooking Russian grievances regarding USA missiles and of embracing what he called a ruinous position. "And by us staying with the treaty, we're not able to adjust to current events quickly". "We clearly have pictures and we clearly know a lot about their cheating, and we should have done a better job in making it abundantly clear, not only to the American people but the Russian people, and Europeans, and others who are on the front lines, that the Russians were evading responsibilities in the INF", Clinton said.

Romanian Foreign Affairs minister Teodor Melescanu reacted to Russia's demands and said that the Deveselu facility is purely defensive and that accusations that this base could be used to launch nuclear missiles is "a baseless gimmick" used by Russian Federation to justify its construction of missiles that violate the INF treaty and create "a real danger, and not just for Romania".

In a response note on February 4, the Russian Foreign Ministry said that Moscow would suspend its obligations under the treaty "for the period before the United States returns to strict compliance with the treaty or until its termination", Ryabkov said.

However, Ryabkov said all Russia's efforts were ignored or blocked by the United States.

Last week, Pompeo announced that Washington would be suspending its obligations under the INF Treaty starting on February 2.

President Donald Trump vowed Tuesday that the United States would outspend Russian Federation on missiles without a fresh worldwide accord after he ditched a landmark Cold War treaty.

The INF Treaty, sealed in the waning days of the Soviet Union in 1987, bans ground-launched missiles with a range between 500 and 5,500 kilometres. Moscow denies violating the treaty.
