Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation: the United States is already violating the INF Treaty

26
The US withdrawal from the INF Treaty will have a negative impact on international security and lead to an arms race, leading Interfax Statement by Deputy Defense Minister Alexander Fomin at a meeting with military attaches.



According to the general, the military department closely monitors the situation in connection with Washington’s intention to withdraw from the INF. Such a step would adversely affect international security and strategic stability and will inevitably lead to a new round of the arms race.

He stressed that the Russian side strictly complies with the terms of the contract, and the accusations of the Americans are unsubstantiated and not supported by any facts.

At the same time, the United States continues to violate the requirements of the agreement, using target missiles that mimic medium-range missiles for missile defense. In addition, the MK-41 universal complexes deployed in Europe are adapted for launching both anti-missiles and surface-to-surface cruise missiles of the Tomahawk type with a strike range of 2,4 thousand km.

The general noted that these actions of the American side are fully subject to the prohibition of the INF Treaty.

In fact, the US intention to withdraw from the treaty is an attempt to justify and legalize its violations,
declared Fomin.

According to him, the Americans no longer consider themselves bound by these obligations. Actually, for the same purposes, at the beginning of the 2000s, they withdrew from the anti-ballistic missile treaty, also using unsubstantiated accusations against Russia.

Nevertheless, for its part, Russia is ready to continue negotiations with the United States on the preservation of the INF Treaty,
added the general.

    The INF Treaty has become no more expensive than the paper on which it was written. Recall the obscene words of the damned Bear Marked.
    For the mat banyat. Put the pros instead of the mat.

        The United States poke your nose - an ungrateful occupation: anyway, they’ll inflate it into slippers.
        But this piece of paper is a disgrace to Russia, as well as the semi-Sakhalin agreement. Only Bear is still not at the pillory.

          We can be just like that, but theirs is not a noble cause, for such a deal ???
          A piece of paper for world peace is not a shame.
          What would put to the post. First, one must legally condemn (and for this, national interest, the ideology that he betrayed must be formulated) and at least catch an atom in Russia, as it seems to me, it is extremely rare ...

      Do not worry, those rockets would have worked out their shelf life and would have become morally obsolete. The pioneer did not sink into oblivion, but became the base of mobile complexes, including Yars and promising Rubezh. Oka moved to a more perfect and universal Iskander. Those. those achievements of the Americans, thanks to the traitor Gorbi, are now leveled.

      And with obscenities there would be more pluses.
      And that no one makes any demands on their aggressive doctrine of the Instant Global Impact, under which all their demands for disarmament are brought. It looks really funny, they say you disarm and then we hit you globally with our missiles. This doctrine must be banned as aggressive and directed against the whole of humanity from the American imperialists.
      Instant Global Strike (PGS) is the United States military effort to develop a system that can deliver an air strike with precise directing of conventional weapons anywhere in the world within one hour, like a nuclear ICBM. Such a weapon would allow the United States to respond to quickly emerging threats much faster than would be possible with conventional forces. The PGS system can also be useful during a nuclear conflict, potentially replacing the use of nuclear weapons against 30% of targets. The PGS program includes numerous established and new technologies, including conventional ground-based missiles and hypersonic air and submarine-based missiles, although as of 2018, the specific PGS system is not yet complete.

          So let's begin to demand the consideration of popular opinion, through a referendum, on any problems of changing state borders.

              What is the need to change them? Have you fought with Putin for them?

              USSR winner of Japan, concluded a convention with Japan, which says about the transfer of 2 islands of the goodwill of the USSR.
              We respect international law and the goodwill of our ancestors. But under the conditions (which are not spelled out in the convention), there must be consensus in the country whether or not to fulfill it. And this requires a referendum, as well as on many other important state issues.
              My grandfather fought with Japan not for the islands with weapons in their hands, but for peace in the world. Islands is a bonus, punishment for a defeated aggressor. And I’m the heir, I just don’t want the mediocre ranking of the country ...

                  And what is incomprehensible here, if you started a fuss it means a reason. The Japanese promised an investment and then they took back the promises. God himself commanded our deceit, but they are glad to be deceived! The Japanese even promised not to let the Americans on the island. Aha shchshchsch-ass! Americans in their legs will roll and tearfully beg.

    MK-41 universal systems deployed in Europe are adapted to launch both anti-missiles and Tomahawk-class surface-to-surface cruise missiles with a range of 2,4 thousand km.

    it’s a lie, of course, specific installations cannot launch the Tomahawks without control systems and preparations for firing specific types of missiles, but they are not there, which the Americans invited the Russian side to see for themselves.
    They didn’t want to check the obvious, now the Americans took on a tougher task — they demand to take into account not only strategic but also tactical charges and fulfill the conditions for medium-range missiles, which include mutual checks in the form of an ultimatum and are not tuned to the talking room.
