 Russian Defense Minister: the US withdrawal from the treaty will bring serious consequences to Europe.


We are interested in the European response to the decision of the United States to withdraw from the INF Treaty, and we hope that Europe knows and understands the consequences of the deployment of medium-range missiles by the United States in Europe, he said.

Russias defense minister stressed: As for medium-range and short-range missiles, we believe that not all European countries understand that this will have a serious impact on Europe, if more precisely, the first to be affected is Europe. We believe that a broader discussion of the decision within the framework of NATO and the EU is a very correct move.

U.S. President Trump earlier indicated that the United States intends to withdraw from the China-Navigation Treaty, accused Russia of violating the treaty, and said that the United States needs to develop weapons restricted by the treaty. Russias Press Secretary Perskov responded by saying Moscow wanted the United States to give a more detailed explanation of the situation and pointed out that the breakdown of the China-Navigation Treaty would force Russia to take measures to safeguard its own security. Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov stressed that there is reaction force on the issue. The Sino-Soviet Treaty on the Elimination of Intermediate-Range and Short-Range Missiles between the United States and the Soviet Union was signed by President Reagan and Soviet leader Gorbachev in Washington on December 8, 1987. Under the treaty, Russia and the United States are prohibited from testing, producing and possessing short-range missiles with a range of 500 to 1000 kilometres, as well as medium-range missiles with a range of 1,000 to 5,500 kilometres, including conventional and nuclear warhead missiles and land-based missile launchers. The United States and Russia have repeatedly accused each other of violating the treaty in recent years. Source: Global Times - World Wide Web.
