The head of the international Committee of the Federation Council Konstantin Kosachev said that the accusations of Russia in violation of the Treaty banning intermediate-range nuclear forces (INF) are designed to exert pressure on Donald trump, reports RIA Novosti.
Earlier the American mass media spread information that Russia allegedly launched a fully operational unit cruise land-based missiles of a class “earth-earth”, which, according to the American side violates the INF Treaty.
“Leaks in the media — it is a predictable continuation of the information war against Russia and against the normalization of relations with Russia”, – said Kosachev.
According to Kosachev, the purpose of this information is to create obstacles to the new US President to make a “u-turn over the Atlantic” in the sense of the revision of foreign policy.
Earlier it was reported that the American media has accused Russia of violating the Treaty on intermediate-range and shorter-range nuclear forces (INF) after it became known about the testing of new missiles.
