However, Mr Putin appeared on Russian TV to refute the claims, saying United States accusations were a pretext so that they could exit the agreement.

In televised comments, the Russian leader said many other countries had developed weapons banned under the INF treaty.

The latest spike in tensions came a day after US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Washington would withdraw from a major Cold War treaty limiting mid-range nuclear arms within 60 days if Russian Federation does not dismantle missiles that the US claims breach the deal.

EU diplomacy chief Federica Mogherini, who met with Lavrov on the sidelines of the 25th OSCE Ministerial Council in Milan, addressed the issue, stating that the INF Treaty must be preserved as it is key to European and global security.
