MOSCOW, May 3 (Itar-Tass) — Russia is not considering a pullout from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces /INF/ Treaty at this stage, General Nikolai Makarov, the Chief of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces said Thursday, as he addressed reporters upon the results of the first day of an international conference on the problems of the antiballistic missile system in Europe.

When a reporter asked him if Russia might pull out of the treaty, Gen Makarov said: “We’re not considering the pullout at the moment but all the elements of the future missile defense system that will be threatening the Russian Strategic Nuclear Forces will end up in the crosshairs of our firepower.”

“But if they don’t threaten our nuclear potential eventually, then they won’t hinder us,” he said.
