Russia will race to develop two new land-based missile launch systems before 2021 to respond to Washington’s planned exit from a landmark nuclear arms control pact, it said on Tuesday.
Axar.az reports citing Reuters.
President Vladimir Putin said at the weekend that Russia had suspended the Cold War- era Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF), which bans both nations from stationing short-and intermediate-range land-based missiles in Europe.
Moscow and Washington accuse each other of violating the treaty and Putin said Russia had acted after the United States announced it was withdrawing from the pact.
