U.S. authorities will start tests of the forbidden INF Treaty of weapon

The U.S. Department of Defense plans to begin tests of arms which do not conform to requirements of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF Treaty) between Russia and America. The source in the Pentagon told correspondents of Associated Press that the authorities prepare for the tests of the weapon which is directly violating terms of the contract. The interlocutor specified that the cruise missile with range about one thousand kilometers will be tested in August, 2019. By the end of fall, according to the source, the operability of a ballistic missile which range about four thousand kilometers will also be checked. It also noted that the Ministry of Defence of the USA does not plan to carry out tests of nuclear weapons. Let's remind, at the beginning of December, 2018 the authorities of the States announced the ultimatum of Russia. According to the American authorities, the Russian Federation does not meet the term of the contract. Despite all evidence of following of all requirements of the INF Treaty produced by Russia, the USA decided to begin the procedure of withdrawal from the Agreement. The president Vladimir Putin emphasized that if America begins production of the weapon forbidden by the Contract, the Russian Federation will arrive also.
