Putin threatens to develop nuclear missiles banned by US-Russia treaty

"There are no new USA missiles in Europe, but there are new Russian missiles, SSC-8, they are mobile, they are hard to detect, they are nuclear capable", he stated.

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.

Signed in 1987 by the USA and USSR, it banned both countries' use of all short and medium-range missiles.

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

6 people dead, dozens hurt in nightclub stampede in Italy
The Lanterna Azzurra club was packed when, some local reports suggest, pepper spray was sacked inside the club in Corinaldo. Some survivors were quoted by Italian media as saying at least one fire exit was blocked when concertgoers tried to get out.

"What's our response? It's simple".

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.

In Brussels, EU diplomatic chief Federica Mogherini urged Russian Federation and the U.S. to save the treaty, warning that Europe did not want to become a battlefield for global powers once again, as it had been during the Cold War.

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.

President Trump said in...

On Tuesday, the Western military alliance formally accused Russian Federation of breaking the treaty.

The statement said the member nations "strongly support" the USA claim that Russian Federation is in breach of the pact, and called on Moscow to "return urgently to full and verifiable compliance".

"We have achieved significant progress in laser weapons", Putin said at the time.

Chinese probe heads for far side of the moon
Chang'e 4 is the next in the line of China's Chang'e missions, and would be the first craft to land on the Moon's far side. Beijing is planning to send another lunar lander, Chang´e-5, next year to collect samples and bring them back to earth.

Signed in 1987 by then U.S. president Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev, the last Soviet leader, the INF resolved a crisis over Soviet nuclear-tipped ballistic missiles targeting Western capitals. The Peresvet laser systems received by the troops are stationed near places of permanent deployment, which are fitted out with the infrastructure necessary for combat duty.
