PostSubject: Russia lashes out, threatens to target U.S. allies if Trump kills arms treaty   Fri Dec 07, 2018 5:11 am

Russian President Vladimir Putin lashed out Wednesday at Washington’s threat to pull out of a key Cold War weapons treaty, while a top general warned Russian forces will target European countries hosting American missiles if the U.S. follows through on the threat.



Rejecting U.S. claims that it was Moscow that had first violated the treaty, Mr. Putin vowed to match any new nuclear weaponry the Pentagon developed if the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty is scrapped.
“It seems that our American partners believe that the situation has changed so much that the U.S. has to have this type of weapons,” Mr. Putin said Wednesday in televised remarks. “What would be our response? A very simple one: in that case, we will do the same.”
Russian General Staff Chief Valery Gerasimov said the “target” of any Russian retaliation “won’t be U.S. territory but the countries where the intermediate-range missiles are deployed” — the European continent.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced at NATO headquarters in Belgium on Tuesday that Mr. Trump is giving Moscow 60 days to “remedy” its INF violations, after which the U.S. would initiate the six-month process for nullifying the deal.
