"Over the same period, we will also have to create a land-based missile system with a long-range hypersonic missile".
Defence experts say because ground-based intermediate-range missiles are cheaper, Russian Federation could theoretically place more of them within range of European targets.
It banned ground-launched missiles with a range of 500 to 5,500 kilometres (300 to 3,400 miles).
Earlier, Pompeo issued an ultimatum to Russian Federation, saying that it has 60 days to start to comply with the agreement, or, otherwise, the United States could leave the treaty on February 2.More news: Where Did THAT Come From? Hubble Discovers Galactic Neighbor Bedin 1
France has carried out a rare simulation of a nuclear deterrent strike, amid fears of an arms race after Donald Trump pulled the USA out of a missile pact with Russian Federation.
Putin emphasised that such new weapons won't be deployed unless the United States does so. Today, the "modernization" that President Obama promised in exchange for New START has swelled to $1.7 trillion over 30 years, but the treaty itself hangs in the balance.
It is clear that Bolton, Morrison, and those like them in the current administration are gunning for New START to be the next treaty to meet the chopping block. "More nuclear weapons does not result in more security", Derek Johnson, executive director of Global Zero, an worldwide movement for the elimination of nuclear weapons, said in a statement emailed to Newsweek.
The ministry did not say when the test was carried out, and officials declined to say how often they took place.
Putin announced earlier that Russian Federation is halting its participation in the INF Treaty. However, in talks this week in Beijing, the United States and Russia reported no breakthrough in their dispute, leaving little reason to think either side would change its stance on whether a Russian cruise missile violates the pact. Russian Federation consistently denied any proscribed activity and so on February 1, the US announced it was pausing its observation of the INF treaty while leaving a six-month window before its official termination. He said China urges the U.S. and Russian Federation to properly resolve differences through constructive dialogue.
But Moscow has alleged that the USA has failed to provide any evidence of how it has violated the agreement.
"Not a single hard fact has been provided to us".
Why did the United States pull out of the pact?
