Russian Federation 'remains open' for arms talks with US

21 February 2019

"If they are manufactured and brought to the European continent, and the USA has such plans, at least we haven't heard anything to the contrary, it will sharply aggravate the world's security situation and will seriously threaten Russian Federation", he said.

"We can not wait, the situation must change for the better now", Putin told assembled lawmakers from Russia's lower house State Duma and upper house Federation Council.

Putin also mentioned that, "Russia will deploy a new hypersonic missile for its navy as part of an ongoing plan to modernize its military capabilities and efforts".

He told Russia's political elite: "It's their right to think how they want but can they count?" But can they count? "I believe this is bad but they did this and that's all and they should have acted likewise in this case - they should have acted precisely honestly", the Russian leader said.

While Washington says it won't deploy new land-based nuclear weapons in Europe, the U.S. and its allies are laying the groundwork to deploy new intermediate-range conventional missiles there for the first time since they were banned by the treaty.

"We are ready for disarmament talks, but we are no longer going to knock on a closed door", he later said.

The Poseidon drones will be used to arm a new generation nuclear powered submarine being built at the Sevmash shipyards.

It's a double homecoming since the now-royal family member's movie will only be released in America. Personal correspondence between Meghan and her estranged father Thomas Markle was leaked by him.

The majority of China's nuclear arsenal is classified as intermediate range, meaning Chinese compliance with the INF would be tantamount to a wholesale forfeiture of its arsenal.

"In any case, we have not heard any statements proving the opposite, so this will dramatically escalate the situation in the field of worldwide security and create serious threats to the Russian Federation", Putin said during his annual address to the Russian Federal Assembly, according to an UNIAN correspondent in Russia.

The treaty, concluded by Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev, banned the development and deployment of land-based missiles with a range of 500-5,500km and was widely credited with banishing nuclear missiles from Europe.

The bill seeks to route Russian web traffic and data through points controlled by state authorities and proposes building a national Domain Name System to allow the internet to continue functioning even if Russia is cut off from foreign online infrastructure.

According to terms of the original INF agreement, Moscow and Washington are obligated to six months of negotiations over differences, which, if unresolved, constitute full withdrawal from the treaty.

Russian President Vladimir Putin threatened to deploy new missiles against Western capitals as he delivered a state of the nation address Wednesday aimed at boosting falling approval ratings.
