Russia In Breach Of Intermediate Nuclear Forces Treaty

Posted on December 6, 2018

It comes as NATO foreign ministers meeting in Brussels said they “strongly support the finding of the United States that Russia is in material breach of its obligations” under the 1987 Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty. The Treaty is a deal signed in 1987 between Russia (then the USSR) and the United States to significantly cut the nuclear weapons capabilities of both sides. The United States has threatened to withdraw from the pact unless Moscow complies with it. Giving evidence to the Commons Defence Committee on Tuesday, General Sir Nick Carter was asked by Chairman Julian Lewis if he was convinced that Russia has broken the treaty to a significant degree. Gen Carter said: “My view is that Russia is in breach of the treaty with the deployment of some of its systems which break the 500 to 5,000-kilometre range. “And I am in no doubt that we need to call them out on that breach.”
