VIEW / NATO threatened to respond to Russia's deployment of 9M729 cruise missiles

The Alliance will react by the end of the year to Russia's deployment of Iskander systems with 9M729 missiles (NATO SSC-8 classification), said NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.

“As for the SSC-8, we will work on anti-aircraft and anti-ballistic systems, on conventional weapons, on increasing the state of alert and accelerating the alert time,” said Stoltenberg.

According to him, the NATO defense ministers have already agreed on the framework conditions for such work, reports TASS .

Stoltenberg said that by allegedly deploying SSC-8 cruise missiles, Russia allegedly violated the Treaty on the Elimination of Intermediate-Range and Shorter-Range Missiles (INF Treaty). According to him, the response of the alliance will be defensive and proportionate. At the same time, Stoltenberg once again assured that NATO did not intend to deploy new ground-based nuclear missiles in Europe.

In December, the Russian Foreign Ministry emphasized that Washington had not brought any real facts to substantiate the claims on the INF Treaty and justify its withdrawal from the treaty.

In September, President Vladimir Putin  sent a  number of countries messages proposing a moratorium on the deployment of medium and shorter-range missiles in Europe and other regions. However, this proposal  did not meet with understanding .

At the end of the year, Putin  proposed that the  United States unconditionally extend the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START-3). The newspaper VZGLYAD talked about why Trump  will have to agree  to Putin's proposal.


More declared TTX: During the tests, the Iskander-M OTRK missile flew about 627 km
