State Department: Responsibility for maintaining the INF Treaty rests with Russia

52
Responsibility for maintaining the INF Treaty currently rests with Russia, the United States, in turn, continues to monitor the situation, reports RIA News Statement by Undersecretary of State for Arms Control Andrea Thompson.




According to her, the State Department continues to work, using its capabilities.

We made, if you will, a warning shot. The ball is on the side of Russia. It should return to the scope of the document. However, we do not observe this,
said Thompson.

She noted that Donald Trump recently made it clear: The White House will defend what is “good for the American people.” The United States will no longer tolerate breaches of contract by Moscow.

According to Thompson, Russia has been violating the treaty for more than five years. Washington constantly points to this, but the Russian leadership does not respond to warnings. The American side continues to demonstrate available intelligence to Russian experts and "key leaders", but in response does not receive "even a confession that they violate." Russia continues to produce SSC-8 (also known as the 9M729 rocket system), continues to test and deploy it, the diplomat added.

Against the backdrop of statements about the upcoming US withdrawal from the INF Treaty, the State Department is actively working with the Allies, explaining to them their position and collecting information.

Earlier, Donald Trump announced that the United States is withdrawing from the INF Treaty in order to build up its nuclear potential until the other powers "come to their senses." Then, according to him, Washington can move on to reducing armaments, however, in addition to Russia, China should be involved in this process.

Moscow, in turn, stated that it wanted to get more detailed explanations from the United States on breach of the treaty, noting that breaking the agreements would force Russia to take measures to ensure its own security.

            In order for the rules of the game to be changed in your favor, you need the economy to be the same as the USA or, at least, like China, and accordingly the political weight. And in the current conditions it is better not to stutter about changing the rules of the game.

        In those days, the United States was actively creating the appearance that it was fighting the colonial past, and as a result, all the Anglo-Saxon filth only intensified. the British island became larger, the colonies were managed more cunningly, but the principle of plundering colonies in favor of the "crown" remained unchanged.

        The laws of the development of capitalism are objective. And not only capitalism, but the whole of humanity.
        Even if we assume that the Russian Empire did its best and colonized all of North America, and not just Alaska and part of California, in the end we had what we have — a state — an enemy across the ocean.

      Seriously, stop quitting with these quasi-territories. Do they position themselves as serious and independent?
      They go out and violate all the contracts that are not beneficial to them, then do not cry that these "little ones" are offended. Sea options !!!! And to get out of any contract that is not beneficial to us, and blame these ..... and see what happens? To answer all the stench by constantly poking their "muzzles" in their own non-compliance!

    Phenomenally. Once again, we are convinced that there can be no agreements with them. The United States is negotiating only in one case. When they feel imminent death or hopeless lag. Well. We destroyed chemical weapons. They don’t. They don’t have money for that. wassat .And they accused us of lying. Now, after their violation of the INF Treaty. They say that we will be guilty if this agreement ceases to exist.

      B - impunity.

      The British lived on their island, there were no invasions, losses associated with this, respectively, and the resources that other countries spent on defense were spent on other channels. New World, India start at the expense of these saved resources. Now the USA is the same principle, only on an even larger scale. Well, and as a continuation, for 500 years both nations have also learned to parasitize in wars. Belligerents invest resources in defense / defense .. Anglo-Saxons are welded. Well, the next round is the creation of conflicts to increase their income and restrain the rest.

      Typical parasitism.
      Spaniards, French, Swedes, Germans .. all under the Anglo-Saxons.

      Nurtured by dozens of generations, a sense of impunity. Even if war and the whole world are in ruins ...

    This is another pressure and blackmail. They do not consider their ground-based universal launchers Mark-41 for allegedly missile defense a violation of the INF Treaty. As well as the presence of long-range strike drones falling under the wording of "weapons carriers."
    PS It’s better to get out of a number of contracts with the United States altogether, develop hypersonic delivery vehicles and put the United States in all kinds of poses.

      Post-truth is the foundation of the modern stage. When there are no arguments, but an action is needed, false concepts replace the justification for the need for these actions. Highlilikli is simply one of the terms of the same.
      Simply put, when it is impossible to kill the Archduke (to arrange an explicit provocation), you need to convince everyone that the Archduke has already been killed.

    It must be firmly understood that Americans cannot be trusted! All contracts with them are no more than Filkin’s letter. At any time convenient for them, they will come out of it, and blame anyone for violating it. It is necessary to conclude, and not allow them to turn the laws on the preservation of the world into a mockery. For some reason, we keep silent about their non-compliance with the agreement on the destruction of chemical weapons, even when they, having fulfilled the conditions of the agreement, accuse us of all mortal sins for using it. Stupid provocation with the Skripals ... We are silent ... How long?

    responsibility for maintaining the INF Treaty rests with Russia
    With American statements, the question always arises - is the United States at least somewhat responsible? Obviously not, as it’s much easier to shift your blame onto others. Take responsibility even for maintaining a treaty that they themselves violate is not a weak country to bomb.

    If the culprit is not found, he is appointed. In any incomprehensible situation, blame Russia. The United States simply catastrophically needs an arms race, and investing budget funds there. But before that, Russia needs to be blamed at all. And then who is right, who is to blame is not important. Winners are not judged.

    They come out, and we are responsible for the safety of the INF Treaty. One says that the matter is basically in China, and the State Department - Russia is to blame. And the question is not that AGAIN is any evidence - they do not need it. For them, the main evidence is their words. The main thing is that Russia is to blame for everything. Nodding to Russia, they make excuses for their actions. And this means that - no matter what they say - they are afraid of EXACTLY Russia.
