INF Treaty left to exist for several days

A Russian-American treaty on the elimination of short- and medium-range missiles has remained for several days. According to the New York Times, the US unilateral withdrawal from the agreement, signed back in 1987, will be notified to Russia by adviser to President Trump John Bolton during his visit to Moscow October 22-23.



An agreement concluded between the Soviet Union and the United States of America prohibits the parties from storing and using ground-based ballistic missiles with a range of 500 to 1000 and 1000 to 5500 kilometers.

It is believed that today the INF Treaty is more advantageous to the Russian Federation, because, if the US leaves it, the Russian territory will be shot through by American missiles deployed around its perimeter in Eastern Europe and Asia. Missiles of a similar class launched from Russia will only be able to hit targets in the sparsely populated Alaska.

Despite this, the United States has consistently accused Moscow of trying to circumvent the terms of the treaty. Earlier, the New York Times published materials that in our country, secretly designed, tested and deployed cruise missiles under the index 9M729, assuming ground-based. The Russian side denies the allegations. There are well-founded assumptions that Washington itself is interested in withdrawing from the INF Treaty with a view to freely developing its rearmament program.

    Well, why, we just need to negotiate with Cuba and deploy our operational tactical missile systems with nuclear warheads there, then we will also be able to shoot the United States along and across, this is the most reasonable and adequate response to the American deployment of such missiles in Eastern Europe.

      Learn history: we already passed this option in October 1962.
      But we will probably have to create new Iskander-2s so that the US missile bases on the territory of Western Europe do not even have time to croak, not to launch our own ballistic missile and ballistic missile defense against targets on our territory.
      We'll have to quickly finish building Boreas A and raise their KOH. And it is time for our Foreign Ministry to end with a comfortable hibernation, and to more persistently explain to the Europeans what the deployment of US nuclear missiles on their territory will lead to. You can even show "cartoons" ... with nuclear horror films.
      Something like this, however.

      By the way, why on earth would the Cubans agree ??? The second, even if agreed, then the United States there is no doubt at once everything will be destroyed there. The problem is not in the USA, not in EUROPE ... the problem in Russia itself is time to look at ourselves ...

        ... the problem is in Russia itself ...

        yeah, after all, it was Russia that surrounded the Pin-do-Stan with its bases with dual-use missiles. And the Cubans will agree, because, like all adequate peoples, they hate pin-do-owls. But the de-bi-ly in gayrope do not understand that by placing the missiles of the carriers of "democracy", in the event of a conflict, they will receive first of all, but for them, with their territories the size of a vegetable garden, it will be a fatal outcome. And Putin correctly said at Valdai: "They will die without having time to repent."

    we just need to come to an agreement with Cuba and deploy our operational - tactical missile systems with nuclear warheads there

    Yeah, here’s an agreement, since it’s so simple. Havana is this why? Especially after Vladimir Vladimirovich wrote off $ 30 billion of debt to them at zero.

    Smaller....
    US President Donald Trump said he would withdraw from the agreement on the elimination of intermediate and shorter-range missiles (INF Treaty) with Russia, the Associated Press reported.

    Unrealistic option.
