USA-Russia: today or tomorrow Bolton will meet Putin
Probably will be announced the US exit from the INF treaty
The President Donald Trump announced last Saturday his intention to withdraw the United States from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty, because Russia is constantly violating the clauses established by two countries. An agreement in force since December 8, 1987 when Ronald Reagan and Michail Gorbachev signed it in Washington, putting an end to the story related to intermediate-range missiles (IRBM) deployed in Europe by both States. The US exit from the INF Treaty -if it will be confirmed- would be declared by Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov a "dangerous step" in the opposite direction to nuclear disarmament.
The reason for Trump's announcement to journalists in Nevada, however, is linked to the fact that Russia has probably been violating the treaty for years, not so much deploying missiles in Europe as working on the development of carriers capable of striking targets at court-middle distances, forbidden by the treaty Inf. Between today and tomorrow, however, confirmation or denial could come, as national security adviser John Bolton will meet in Moscow with Russian President Vladimir Putin. In the meantime, however, the US ambassador to NATO Kay Bailey Hutchison assured that the United States could "intercept and break down Russian missiles that could hit NATO countries in Europe or Alaska".
