Putin: Russia to ensure its security following US withdrawal from INF treaty, missile testing

Russian President Vladimir Putin has ordered the defence ministry and ministry of foreign affairs to analyse the potential threats stemming from US missile testing activities, and to formulate an appropriate symmetrical response, ONA reports citing Sputnik.

Earlier, the Russian president said Moscow was "disappointed" by the US's recent ground-based medium-range missile testing activities, which Moscow considers a blatant violation of the Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces Treaty. Washington completed its withdrawal from the INF earlier this month.
