US threatened Russia to deploy new missiles in Europe

Robert O'Brien

The United States, having withdrawn from the treaty on the deployment of intermediate and shorter-range missiles (INF), is ready, if necessary, to contain Russia and deploy new hypersonic missiles in Europe, said Robert O'Brien, adviser to the US president on national security. RIA Novosti reports.

“We are developing hypersonic weapons, ballistic missile delivery systems (…). We will deploy the same weapons, if necessary, in Europe to contain Russia, ”the agency quotes the words from O'Brien's speech at the Hudson Institute.

On October 26, Russian President Vladimir Putin again called on NATO to declare a similar moratorium on the deployment of ground-based intermediate and shorter-range missiles in Europe.

The missile Treaty on the Elimination of Intermediate-Range and Shorter-Range Missiles (INF Treaty) was officially terminated on August 2. Washington tore up the agreement, allegedly due to violations of its terms by the Russian side. The agreement was signed by Moscow and Washington in December 1987.
