Kremlin rejects USA charge Russian Federation in breach of arms control treaties

Kremlin rejects USA charge Russian Federation in breach of arms control treaties

"That's why one of important ideas voiced during the [president's State of the Nation] address is a proposal to stop fuelling a new arms race and to start searching for ways of preserving peace", he said. The video appeared to show warheads closing in on South Florida. "Other countries also have tried but apparently so far have failed to make them, and we succeeded thanks to new materials". "Moscow is now openly stating that it's prepared for the destruction of the system of strategic arms control that it and Washington built up over 50 years".

The spat came as relations between the powers lie frozen at levels not seen since the Cold War over the conflicts in Ukraine and Syria and accusations that Moscow interfered in the US presidential election in 2016.

A United States official told the Washington Post that the new policy will focus on ways to meet rising missile threats from Russian Federation and China in regional theaters such as Europe and Asia, where their systems have alarmed the American military. Putin said initial production is underway.

"Putin's announcement is a predictable reaction to the ongoing missile defense efforts of the United States", Lisbeth Gronlund, senior scientist at the Union of Concerned Scientists, said in a statement.

The Russian military budget, reduced to 2.77 trillion rubles ($48.5 billion) this year from 3.05 trillion rubles in 2017 amid belt-tightening because of a stagnant economy, is a fraction of US defense spending.

"Never. Never", Putin said.

"Everything he said, whether it was for real or not, has to be treated seriously by policy makers", he said.

The U.S. military now has 44 interceptors in Alaska and California that can shoot missiles out of silos, with plans to increase the number to 64 by about 2023 and possibly add a third site in the eastern part of the United States.

The U.S. unveiled a new nuclear doctrine last month that envisages building more low-yield bombs and modernizing its strategic arsenal.

But Putin says USA authorities need to "provide some materials, specifics and data".

Earlier on Monday, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said Moscow had evidence that the United States was trying to interfere in Russia's presidential election, but did not say what that evidence was. "Many will push the president in this direction", he said.
