MOSCOW, June 9. /TASS/. The United States keeps alleging Russia is in breach of the Intermediate-range Nuclear Force treaty in order to excuse its own steps Washington presents as retaliatory, the Russian Defense Ministry believes.
"One has the impression the United States is making a fuss about alleged Russian violations to create a pretext for implementing its own, ostensibly retaliatory military steps, expected to assert US leadership in resisting a Russian military threat - a myth Washington keeps inflating in defiance of obvious facts," Antonov said.
He remarked that the Russian Defense Ministry had taken note of the timing of the media leaks with calls for joint actions by the United States and its allies to compensate for Russia’s alleged violations of the INF treaty.
"These publications were timed for another upsurge in the anti-Russian campaign in the West ahead of the G7 summit meeting and the forthcoming EU summit, which will be discussing the prolongation of anti-Russian sanctions," Antonov said.
"We would like to draw the United States’ attention to the extremely dangerous effects for international security and stability this policy regarding the INF treaty might bring about," Antonov said.
