MOSCOW, 5 Dec — the Country hosting American missiles medium and short range, will become targets of retaliatory actions of Russia, said Wednesday in a briefing to the military attaches of foreign States, the chief of the General staff of the Russian Armed forces army General Valery Gerasimov.
“I would like through you to convey to your leaders that if the INF Treaty is destroyed, it will not remain without response on our part. You, as military professionals should understand that not the United States, and countries hosting American complexes with intermediate-range and shorter-range would be targets for retaliation of Russia”, — he said.
On Tuesday, the US Secretary of state Mike Pompeo said that Washington urges Moscow to return to the implementation of the INF Treaty within two months. According to him, the US will suspend its obligations if the Russian Federation after 60 days will not return to the performance of the contract.
