US Congressmen allocate $ 58 million for a new cruise missile

27
The lower house of the US Congress approved the allocation of $ 58 million to countering Russia, which, according to Washington, violated the Treaty on the Elimination of Intermediate-Range and Shorter-Range Missiles (INF), reports TASS.




The document is supported by the majority of congressmen.

According to the explanatory note, the bill "provides for significant measures in connection with Russia's violations of the INF Treaty, including the allocation of $ 58 million for the development of military options", which will be "opposed to Russian funds deployed in violation of the agreement."

Parliamentarians insist on the development of ground-based cruise missiles by the United States, but not in violation of the agreement. Also, the authors demand the application of sanctions against Moscow "for the violations of various treaties and agreements in the field of arms control."

The draft itself states that “in the light of the violation by the Russian Federation of the INF Treaty” the United States “has the legal right to suspend its implementation as a whole,” or refuse to apply a number of articles.

Now the bill will be sent to the Senate. Previously, the document was agreed by both chambers, so there is no doubt that it will be adopted.

Washington for the first time accused Moscow of violating the INF Treaty as early as July 2014. Then the USA repeatedly repeated this statement. Moscow expressed categorical disagreement, noting that there was no specifics in the statements of the American side. In addition, Russia makes US counterclaims on the implementation of the INF.

    In addition, Russia puts forward counterclaims to the United States for the implementation of the INF Treaty.
    Colleagues all agreements with the United States have collapsed. And you need to forget about them. We are entering the era of "everyone for himself" and "who is stronger is right" and there is enough illusion about this.

        This is not a laugh. This means that such missiles are already there. Only called targets.

            GM ... Take a close look at the characteristics of the target missiles on which the US is testing its missile defense. These are the real RSDs. Only warhead is not present and the program is slightly different.

      And I think this is another cut. What is 58 million in America? This is enough only to remove some cartoon or prepare a report. Look, I think so. Although the trend is undeniably frightening.

      There is a suspicion that they are only legalizing $ 58 million - which have already been successfully squandered under yet another horror story about Russia! They could give these grandmothers to ISIS, and now they need to be washed a little ...

        hi Yes, it is very similar to the legalization of funds disbursed "retroactively." But here are some other goals ...

            Yes, you can't take a decent “ideologically seasoned” film about evil Russians in Hollywood for that amount — the appetites are not the same.

      Come on..
      Americans have long shown themselves to be completely irrevocable.

    58 million dollars is very small! Even by our standards, by the standards of Russia! This is so for them, only to find specialists ... And to negotiate with these specialists, one hundred million more is needed ...

      This is just an attempt to provoke Russia to break the INF Treaty so as not to get dirty themselves.

        Here - here it looks more like provocative actions, and not a missile creation program.

      All these actions of the United States may have a double, or even a triple bottom.

      Why would they look for someone? They also have the same Tomahawk, it remains only to deploy them in a ground based version.

            Geography. It does not make sense to deploy such missiles in Europe at the moment. Much easier to strike from the north.

    .... reason and reason to continue the arms race ...

    Americans never abide by any agreements and act as it is beneficial for themselves. Brute force rules the world.

    They adapt to the land option and there will be such a missile.

    58 million - for a new cruise missile good - only it must first be done, and before this stupid "think a little bit" thing. Yes, they spat, you would always have done all the agreements long ago if you could. Well, from the budget, how not to pull money.

    If you look at the literal translation of this "horror story", then there we are not even talking about the "hardware", that is, the development of the rocket. This is a "concept development". That is, they will write a mountain of papers, defend several dissertations for the title “Doctor of Law” or “Political Science”, and this will end

    You can’t even adapt the missile, but use those that are now. But what is the point in them when they have no charges. All the nuclear charges of the Tomogavkov and Griffon were disposed of in the EMNip year in 2009, of which more than half were converted from conventional air-launched missiles to conventional ones, and the charges were used in other munitions.

    58 million

    Down and Out trouble started. Today 58 million, tomorrow - 58 billion. It is not in vain that since 2014 Russia has been accused of violations. "Give money, give money ..." ("12 chairs").

    This will only untie Russia's hands on 100% restoration of its defenses and inevitable response to its closest "inadequate neighbor"!
