Russian Foreign Ministry: the decision of the United States to exit the INF Treaty is final

31
Russia strongly rejects the unreasonable accusations of the United States in violation of the INF Treaty, said in an interview Merchant Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov.




Over the years, 5 has been discussing this problem, Washington never presented any concrete evidence, the diplomat said.

According to him, the legal justification chosen by the US administration for the suspension of the contract, namely the reference to Russia's violation of the provisions of the agreement, is absolutely untenable.

Ryabkov recalled that Moscow did not receive a response to the proposal to discuss differences at the level of military specialists of the two countries. Such a request to the head of the Pentagon was sent by Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu.

The deputy head of the agency added that Russia did not produce and did not test missiles prohibited by the treaty. This also applies to 9М729, the range of which, according to Washington, is beyond the scope of the agreement.

On bilateral channels, we were confirmed at a high political level that this decision (on the US withdrawal from the INF mode) is final and not an invitation to dialogue,
he said.

And the point here is not so much in the problems with Russia, as in the desire of Americans to free themselves as a whole from the strings that limit their actions. According to the administration, such restrictions pose a threat to the interests of the United States, since other non-committed countries are successfully developing their ground arsenals of medium and shorter-range missiles.

The White House specifically pointed to China, the DPRK and Iran, the deputy minister explained.

In the future, the United States will move purposefully towards the denunciation of the INF Treaty, and the current suspension is nothing more than a political game with public opinion and with its NATO allies.

It seems that these allies and Washington persuaded to take a two-month pause ... This time, the Americans are likely to spend ... on trying to redirect at least a critical response to Russia at least part of the global community. I would like to be mistaken, but the facts speak in favor of this version,
said Ryabkov.

Recall that the United States recently put forward an ultimatum to Russia, suggesting that within two months it should reconsider its position on the INF Treaty and return to fulfilling its obligations under this agreement.

        It is high time. Draw red lines, and drive the West behind the flags. Khrushchev - well done, inadequate with a shoe portrayed himself - the West heaped full pants. The West understands only power and fear. They need to be given what they fear.

      Russia strongly rejects groundless allegations by the United States

      And maybe enough to shake their decisive rejection and humiliation. Let them blame what they want. Less need to listen and more to do. Our concessions and diplomatic courtesy give us nothing but a violation of state sovereignty, problems in the economy, and sarcastic grins about our weaknesses. So imperceptibly, you can skip the line when you can no longer wipe it, and shame will have to be washed off with blood.
      It's good to call on TV: "Let's get together!" Well, come on. But each in the scope of the position held.

      While there is no point in entering with such "non-peaceful trump cards", but if the United States and the West have forgotten what Kuzkina's mother looks like, then maybe it would be better to remind them? Perhaps it makes sense to withdraw from the treaty on nuclear weapons testing, and at the same time check the moisture content of nuclear powder.

    Yes, the question can be resolved. The Americans do not want to fight on their territory. But to arm our partners and fight with their hands, I think this is their goal.

            You do not argue democratically, these weapons are not directed against anyone. These measures are a big step towards democracy in the region. We will stand guard over democracy and stability and peace throughout the world and in this region especially. I remind you that about the rights and democratic freedoms of the Indians of both America, no one has canceled.

      But we are concerned about the observance of democracy, so the base in Venezuela is very democratic, so that our partners remember that Russia is the guardian of democracy and if it will be necessary to defend democracy and respect for the rights and freedoms of the Indians of Honduras.

    Russian Foreign Ministry: the decision of the United States to exit the INF Treaty is final

    I thought a little, weighed all the pros and cons and I will tell you my opinion, the one that will suit me - both as a resident of Russia, and as a citizen, and as a patriot, ready to stand up to defend the Fatherland with arms in hand.
    The decision to sever diplomatic bilateral Russian-American ties with a country that constantly flouts our international law and sets us up with ultimatum of various kinds must be final.

      This is at least not democratic. The two most democratic nuclear powers must sow democracy and become shoulder to shoulder. We need to be closer to a democratic USA to bring democracy together. Therefore, we must move closer the democratizing potential to both America (Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua) in order to achieve complete democracy together shoulder to shoulder.

    If the "partners" decided not to fucking bend. Rivet more missiles and put them in the direction of the borders. So that our "good neighbors" (now mongrels under amers) know what will become of them. Uncle himself will not save from Caliber.

    You stupid, sorry, wrote. It is from this agreement that you should NOT EXIT. For some reason, you thought of protecting the national sovereignty of Venezuela. But for some reason you don’t remember, for example, the protection of the national sovereignty of the same Georgia, or Lithuania, together with Latvia and Estonia. Or about the sovereignty of Japan or Afghanistan. Or for example, Armenia. They are now breathing very indifferently towards Europe and NATO, and what if they have to defend their sovereignty not only from the creeps from Azerbaijan, but also from Russia? As then? Most likely you would be delighted and what was called from joy in the seventh heaven that Georgia or the Baltic states would have an atomic bomb? Will you be glad?

    The doctrine, namesake, is still a serious state document and there is no place for such terminology as hell or heaven... What do you dislike about the current military doctrine? In my opinion, it says very clearly about the use of nuclear weapons. But even if there is nothing in the "open" version of the Doctrine, this does not mean at all that there is nothing of the kind in the combat documents of the same Strategic Missile Forces. And such provisions have always been there. It is one thing to score political points by saying that we "will never use nuclear weapons first," and the second is to keep our strategic forces ready to strike first. They talk about the "first" from all the stands, gaining political points. They are silent about the "second". But our "sworn friends" are well aware of what will happen in real life ...

    Let there be no blow to self-esteem. What can we host in Venezuela? A couple of Tu-160s and a squadron of fighters for cover? So sorry, the Americans just need to transfer a couple of fighter aviation regiments in this direction, placing them not even on the continental United States, but on the islands. Our planes will be under such close supervision that the launch of the first rocket is all. On all our "aviation" at the base in Venezuela it will be possible to put a big and fat cross. And taking into account that the X-101 will "cut" to the nearest point of the United States for almost 3 hours, it is not difficult to shoot them down ...
    And in response we can get a "blow to Russian pride" When the same Americans place their airbases in Romania, Georgia, Ukraine, for example.

    It will be called - MONEY FOR WIND. Why should a good air-based cruise missile turn the HZ into what, re-conduct the entire test suite without a 100% guarantee that we will get an equally good ground-based missile?

    Are there opportunities? How many regimental sets of S-400 is our industry capable of producing per year ???
    You can "rivet" buckets at some saucepan factory. "Riveting" the missiles will not work. This is a production with a huge number of contractors and co-executors. And what's the point if plant "A" produces 50% more "products X" on the mountain, and plant "B" cannot make the same number of "products Y", since it itself, in turn, is tied to dozens of other enterprises
