US Missile Defense Deployment in Romania Threatens Russia – Senior DiplomatOctober 12, 2017
According to the Russian Foreign Ministry, the US deployment of its missile launchers at a base in Romania violates the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty.
By deploying missiles in Romania, the US is violating the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty and poses a threat to Russia’s security, Director of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s North America Department Georgiy Borisenko said in an interview with Sputnik.
Borisenko said the United States has accused Russia of similar violations for “about four years, but it has not shown any real evidence that we are violating something somewhere, only some pictures from Google Earth, which allegedly depict some launching systems on the ground. But everything is very blurry, and it’s completely unclear why these systems are supposed to shoot at a distance that violates INF,” Borisenko said.
