Pentagon: the United States is implementing the INF Treaty in full

26
The United States does not go beyond the framework of the Treaty on Intermediate-Range and Shorter-Range Missiles (INF), while Russia violates its provisions, reports RIA News Pentagon spokesman Johnny Michael’s statement.




Earlier, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said that the deployment of US missile defense elements in Japan would mean a violation by Washington with the assistance of Tokyo.

Aegis Ashore complexes “are equipped with universal launchers that are capable of using shock weapons, in practice this will mean another violation of the treaty on the elimination of medium and short-range missiles by the Americans with the actual assistance of Japan,” Zakharova said.

The Ministry of Defense complies with all obligations under the INF Treaty. The US government, by contrast, found Russia violating the obligations of the INF Treaty,
said Michael to the agency.

Recall that in early December, the US president approved new sanctions against Russia for alleged breaches of the INF Treaty. Moscow considers such actions baseless and hopes that the US administration will refrain from imposing new restrictions.

The contract was signed on 8 on December 1987 of the year during Mikhail Gorbachev’s visit to Washington. For the first time, a whole class of missile weapons with a range of destruction from 500 to 1000 and from 1000 to 5500 km came under reduction. The document is of unlimited duration. At the same time, each of the parties has the right to terminate it by presenting convincing evidence about the need to exit it.

        The Americans will soon withdraw from this treaty, judging by the hype around it

          and they’ve got it all right. at first they make noise by pointing fingers at others and preparing the ground under full hype. then they exit the contract already with the finished “mat. part".

      This is not a “gobbled lie”, but a “pure deception”, the one who invented this move is a “bright head”. It must be admitted

              Don’t call it like that, I must admit that they "made us" here and while we are "making noise" we urgently need to prepare an ANSWER

                No one did anything on this issue, we just caught up with them or even got ahead of them in some way, which was clearly shown by Caliber X-101 in Syria. Therefore, the stink is coming. After all, the launcher can be put not only on the ship and the mattresses understand everything perfectly.

                  These missiles are GOOD, but you did not see what we lost. But the fact is that for missiles of different classes we do not create universal launchers that could, just as they can be deployed anywhere, at our request, but let them rack their brains, and what’s inside

                      What they didn’t create is obvious, but what we are creating is how we see what they created ... In the meantime, no. All boron cheese from our Iskander, which has a clearly different load ...
                      You see the difference in appearance ... not to mention the size


                      And I don’t understand why these complexes look different ...


                      Do you think they could be made EXTERNAL identical?

                        We see and analyze what is, for all to see, but the launchers (if any) for the INF will not be found anywhere and no one will show it to you.

    All this fuss with the INF Treaty is unnecessary proof that when writing such agreements it is necessary to look at the future and more clearly prescribe restrictions. Since the United States really does not prohibit the use of “universal launchers”, but this doesn’t make it easier for us ... at any time, these launchers may have strike missiles for delivering a “first global strike”, and then missile defense missiles are placed for reflection of our retaliatory strike .... It is sad that we have not talked much about universalism in the same way ...

    I looked at the photo for the article and for some reason the thought flickered - what a beautiful target, and even indicating the "ten." From space at a glance. Nevertheless, it was not for nothing that the American military department was located in the pentagram.

    The United States imagines itself to be the ruler of the world, and all attempts by Russia to point out violation of agreements turn against Russia. Amerikosy overlaid missile defense systems from west and east and argue that this is not directed against us. Russia in Cuba needs to reanimate its base so that these "hawks" are under the hood.

    Do not underestimate the intelligence of the enemy. Unfortunately, we have plenty of places where it is very difficult to hide the nomination of these installations, this is the same Crimea and the Kaliningrad region

    Three hundred and thirty-third act of Marlezon ballet ... How much can you chew this cud about launchers. As long as there are no Tomogavks in them, this is not a violation. We can only talk about the violation of the "spirit" of the Treaty. The President has repeatedly spoken about this. Now Zakharova has also lit up on this field.
    At the same time, we are outraged when we are accused of the fact that the range of the Iskander missiles is much greater than that permitted by the agreement, that we can put medium-range missiles on this launcher.
    But these are phenomena of the same order. Yes, we can probably put rockets on the launcher that fall under the ban on the INF Treaty. But while they are not standing there, this is not a violation of the article (so to speak, “letters”) of the Treaty, but only some ephemeral violation of the “spirit” of the Treaty (they can stand, after all). But we angrily reject these allegations. But even the Mk-41 launchers DO NOT STOP Axes yet. although they may stand. Why should we consider this a violation? Not counting the violation of Iskander launchers. Honestly, over a quarter of a century, these mutual reproaches and accusations have become so sick. There is a specific violation - talk about it and withdraw from the contract. And the exercises in trepidation are already tired. Every politician both with us and with us, if he wants to be noticed, is simply obliged to speak out about this ....

    Moreover, specific missile launchers were specified in the agreement. Griffon launchers, Pershing-1A and Pershing-2 launchers, missile launchers RK-55, RSD-10, R-12, R-14, SS-12, SS-23. In particular, a launcher for cruise missiles was considered a launcher, which was transported by a truck and had the following dimensions. Length - 10,64 m, width - 2,44 m, height - 2,64 meters, weight 14, 3 tons. The number of missiles in the launcher is 4. ALL, About neither universal PU nor in the main text of the contract, nor in subsequent additions to it was said NOT A WORD. That is, all talk of violations in the form of launchers, both on our part and on the American one, is aimed at the media and the crowd. For you always need to maintain the image of the enemy, ready to deceive you at the first opportunity. Then it’s much easier to control the crowd

    That's all we have on the contrary in Russia means laws only for slaves, and gentlemen (deputies, bureaucrats) can do anything! And international law means we are observing. Well, how holy it is. But in America it’s quite the opposite for us .. for all, the main thing is America itself and well done! The USSR handed out help to anyone, but they will tolerate their own! Tortured these miserable statements of the Mead, become strong already, or endure and turn your cheeks ...
