Russian Foreign Ministry: Americans are lying, reporting on the implementation of obligations under the INF

36
The United States provides knowingly false information about the alleged fulfillment of obligations under the Treaty on the Elimination of Intermediate-Range and Shorter-Range Missiles (INF), there is no constructive reaction to Moscow’s comments, reports RIA News statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation.




Evaluating the State Department’s report on compliance with agreements and commitments in the field of arms control, the Russian office points out that “deploying the US on a missile defense base in Romania of the Aegis Ashore system and similar plans for a base in Poland are a gross violation of obligations” under the INF.

The Foreign Ministry also pointed out a large-scale American "test program using target missiles similar in characteristics to ground-based medium and shorter-range ballistic missiles, as well as to increasing production and using unmanned aerial drums."

Such means are clearly covered by the definition of land-based cruise missiles contained in the treaty. It should be noted that we have been pointing out the last two points of the violations of the INF. To our American colleagues for more than fifteen years. There is no constructive reaction,
the statement said.

The Foreign Ministry notes that “the unwinding of the anti-Russian campaign in the context of the INF Treaty is more and more systematically used by Washington as a“ template ”to impart to its own efforts on the forced pumping of military muscles of greater“ legitimacy ”in the eyes of the general public by publicly issuing allegations of Russia in its“ aggressive behavior "and the alleged growing need to respond." “Along the way, the Americans are forming from Russia an image of the enemy among their allies, seeking for them the growth of military allocations and accelerated militarization,” which threatens security in Europe and throughout the world.

The US announced the release of 5 in February 2018 (reference date when the parties should reach the limits of strategic offensive arms) for the Treaty’s measures on further reduction and limitation of strategic offensive arms (START) indicators they achieved not only due to actual arms reductions, but also due to incorrect in terms of the contractual practice of manipulation,
the document says.

The agency explains that the United States "converted part of the Trident II launch launchers and the B-52H heavy bombers ... in such a way that the Russian side was unable to confirm that these strategic offensive forces were not suitable for the use of heavy bombers, as stipulated by the contract ”, and also due to the unilateral retraining of“ mine launchers intended for training, into the category of “training mines” not provided by the START Treaty ”.

The number of means of START withdrawn in this way by the United States from accounting under the Treaty may well be comparable to the total nuclear potential of Great Britain and France,
notes the Russian Foreign Ministry.

        This is a bluff like in poker. The kid does not have a guaranteed accurate guidance system. Therefore, he will use the American style in politics against trampampam. just as brazenly and cynically lie, cunning and show signs.

      Lavrov said: "we are losing the last crumbs of trust in our Western partners." In my opinion, the fact that they can not be trusted, has been clear since Byzantium. We were taught the same by the Poles. The United States unilaterally withdrew from the ABM Treaty. According to the START treaties, this is a legitimate reason to withdraw from these treaties. I understand that so far there is no means to dramatically increase the strategic nuclear potential, but this is necessary. We do not need a way out of the INF Treaty - there are enough cruise missiles, and most importantly of course this is a Dagger. They need at least a thousand, which means there will not be enough MiGs. It is necessary to expand the range of carriers, for example, to facilitate the Su-34, to adapt the Tu-22M. I am sure that the speed of Mach 1,5 is sufficient to start, and the 31st was chosen to save money, because it was already used in the Ishim program and in my Burlak mine. I think how the MiG-31 interceptor is inferior to the Su-57, which means that plans to restore production were connected precisely with the Dagger. The decision has not been made, which means there are other carriers.

    As for the shock UAVs, the Russian Foreign Ministry turned down - they are reusable, unlike missiles.

    The United States has enough other violations of the INF Treaty (universal mine launchers in Poland and Romania, target missiles are complete analogues of INF).

      When the contract was concluded, there were no such UAVs. Their appearance in large numbers upsets the balance, and nothing prevents us from using them as disposable carriers at the right time.

        The Russian Foreign Ministry raises the question of compliance with a specific treaty (INF), and not about the general balance of power (which, incidentally, includes our “Daggers,” “Poseidons,” and “Petrels,” which are not covered by any treaty).

        Therefore, our Foreign Ministry, speaking of shock UAVs (which are also not covered by any agreement), clearly pulls an owl on the globe laughing

    The agency explains that the United States "converted part of the Trident II SLBM launchers and the B-52H heavy bombers ... so that the Russian side was unable to confirm the bringing of these strategic offensive arms into an unsuitable state for use of SLBMs and nuclear weapons of heavy bombers, like this stipulated by the contract ”, as well as due to the unilateral re-qualification of“ mine launchers intended for training into the category of “training mines” not stipulated by the START Treaty ”
    Come on! And who "drove Russia into the neck" in matters of the destruction of mines, the cutting of carriers, and the destruction of chemical weapons? They wanted this — to be “ahead of the rest”, not citizens of Russia or the USSR, but those in power, including the Foreign Ministry! Now you don’t need to blame anyone, but your 90s earhooks! And now it’s necessary not to create and support their “Centers”, to reward those who are well-off, with the next anniversary and so on ... but to throw them out of our history - recognizing them as enemies of Russia!

    We must get out of START-2. Or expand its effect to all countries that are allies of the United States, i.e. France, England and Israel, which will allow us to raise the threshold for the number of carriers and warheads. At least that's how it looks from the sofa ... what

    I also remember in the 90s when they signed an agreement on the reduction of nuclear weapons, our missiles were cut and disposed of, and Washington simply dismantled nothing and exported it to storage facilities.

    From the fact that we constantly say that the Americans are lying and confirm this with facts, they will not be more honest. Cynical lies and provocations will continue, and taking into account voluntary assistants and countries looking into their mouths, they will be replicated around the world. I think that only tough retaliatory measures without any compromises can at least turn the tide. Just do not immediately write that I call for war.

    Yes, the Americans wanted to put on us. Preparations are underway for a major war, and now no agreements will be implemented at all. First of all, coups along our borders, Armenia is just the beginning. Secondly, those with whom we have alliances and agreements will depart from us. For they are afraid to get hit by us. Well and accordingly it’s good if they just move away. rather than go under the Americans.

    Not so it is necessary to formulate, it is necessary easier - AMERICANS LIE.
    Point, and that’s enough.
    This is a common axiom such as “water flows”, “rain is falling”, “cold snow”, “the sun is shining”, “English shits”, “Americans are lying”.
