Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov categorically rejected accusations that his country was violating the short- and medium-range missiles treaty.

"The Russian side did not violate the text of the treaty. On the contrary, we have arguments to accuse the United States of this," Pskov was quoted as saying today. "Despite the undermining of the medium- and short-range missile disposal treaty by Washington, President Vladimir Putin is continuing his efforts to prevent Increased tension and destabilization of global security and stability in the case of the deployment of medium and short-range missiles, which was previously banned.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced on October 2 that Russia had formally withdrawn from the short- and medium-range missile treaty, and the Russian Foreign Ministry announced the same day that the treaty had expired at the initiative of the United States, which has traditionally preferred to continue its accusations and unilateral steps to advance the arms race.

President Putin stressed that Washington's exit from the treaty could lead to an irrepressible arms race, calling on Washington to begin a serious and objective dialogue with Moscow.
