Deputy Chairman of Committee of the State Duma on defense Franz Klintsevich.
MOSCOW, 4 Dec — Russia can not take seriously the accusations of the USA in compliance with the Treaty on the elimination of intermediate and shorter-range missiles (INF Treaty), said a member of the Federation Council Committee on defense and security Frants Klintsevich.
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.
“Another political somersault of the United States. First of all, I note that similar statements can’t be taken seriously by Russia,” — said Klintsevich, commenting on the statement Pompeo.
