Kremlin Focuses on Alleged US Plans to Aim Missiles at Russia's Nukes

Moscow is paying much attention to US press reports about Washington's possible deployment of nuclear missiles that can threaten Russia's nuclear potential.

Mocow has directed much of its attention on US press reports about Washington's possible deployment of nuclear missiles capable of threatening Russia's nuclear potential and will first analyze them before making any assessments, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Friday.

"Of course, we paid attention to these reports from the press. We first need to analyze these reports, this information before we give any type of assessment, but we have of course placed much attention on these reports," Peskov told journalists.

Earlier media reports suggested that the United States was considering deploying missile systems in Europe as a response to an alleged violation of the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty by Moscow.

The United States is suspecting Russian authorities of testing ground-launched cruise missiles with a range that is not allowed by the treaty.

The INF Treaty bans nuclear and conventional ground-based cruise and ballistic missiles with ranges of 500-5,500 kilometers (310-3,400 miles).

Russia, in its turn, has reminded of alleged violations of the treaty by the United States by placing missile defense launchers in Poland and Romania, which, in Moscow's view, could be used to deploy Tomahawk cruise missiles.
