Russian Federation urges U.S. to destroy anti-missile shield in Romania

The US accused Russian Federation of building prohibited missiles, but said that it may return to the accord if Moscow eliminates the violation within the next 180 days.

Russia's Ministry of Defence said on Thursday that the United States should destroy its MK-41 missile defence launch systems deployed in Romania in order to return to compliance with a Cold War-era nuclear pact.

"Under my administration, we will never apologize for advancing America's interests", Trump told United States lawmakers assembled in the House chamber. "In which case we will outspend and out-innovate all others, by far", Trump added.

Rood said that United States officials will discuss their defence options with allies at a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation defence ministers meeting later this month in Brussels in order to see "how we adapt our defence posture in response to that new reality".

"I am sure that everyone who is somehow involved in our foreign policy, defense and security activities will work as a team to prevent a situation that would mean everything that was a cornerstone of European security for decades has perished", the senior Russian diplomat said.

"Over the same period we will also have to create a land-based missile system with a long-range hypersonic missile", he said.

"Yars solid-propellant intercontinental ballistic missile armed with multiple warheads was test-fired from the Plesetsk state testing spaceport", the Russian Defense Minister said, announcing the Wednesday morning test, Russia's Tass news agency reported.

Ryabkov said the United States had not sent Moscow any concrete proposals for a new pact. Russian Federation is going to retaliate against the United States.

The INF Treaty marked the first-ever pact reached by Washington and Moscow on nuclear disarmament and a major step forward in restricting the arms race.

"The hard answer is that I don't see now much appetite to do anything in this direction, nearly from everyone", Rinkevics said.
