Russia plans new missile systems to counter U.S. by 2021

Ahead of a deadline set by Washington, the U.S. said that Russian Federation had not addressed concerns over a new medium-range missile system that Western states believe goes against the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty.

The NATO ally has supported the United States decision to leave the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty, agreeing with Washington that a new Russian missile system violated the 1987 pact, but called for a new accord in its place. Russian President Vladimir Putin responded by saying that Moscow will also abandon the pact, but will only deploy intermediate-range missiles if Washington does so.

But the Trump administration has hinted it would only be interested in saving a treaty that was expanded to include not just the United States and Russian Federation but China and other countries that have deployed mid-range ground-launched cruise missiles.

When Russia signed the INF Treaty and agreed to eliminate its ground-launched intermediate-range missiles, it was because its leaders realized that the absence of such weapons would make Russia more secure, not less. At the end of last week, the Trump administration announced it would withdraw from the decades-old pact, accusing Moscow of violating its terms. "(Japan) will communicate with relevant countries, including Russian Federation and China, while cooperating with the United States", Suga said.

Cardiff City's Emiliano Sala On Board Missing Plane
Last night, Nantes fans held a vigil for their former striker, while Cardiff supporters laid down tributes at the club's stadium. Lifeboats and helicopters were sent out but the search was suspended four hours later as weather conditions worsened.

Saturday's formal notification of Russian Federation of the U.S. suspension sets in motion a six-month period during which Russian Federation could save the INF by coming into compliance with it in a manner that satisfies the US.

USA officials have emphasised their fear that China, which is not party to the treaty, is gaining a significant military advantage in Asia by deploying large numbers of missiles with ranges beyond the treaty's limit.

"Unfortunately, the countries of the alliance were not ready for meaningful dialogue on the Mk-41 launchers, which are located in Romania, and will appear in Poland next year, in violation of the INF Treaty".

US President Donald Trump has proposed a new nuclear missiles treaty that has the potential to include India as he delivered the State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress in the US. According to one source, USA intelligence assesses that Russia's development efforts on the missile continues.

Ex-Man United Boss Jose Mourinho Embarrassed In Russia
Mourinho has been out of work since he was removed from his role at United in December after two-and-a-half years at the helm. Prosecutors said he had created offshore companies to manage his image rights and hide the earnings from tax officials.

"In Europe, it will happen due to the threat of deploying short- and intermediate-range missiles from both the American and Russian sides". The missile, with a maximum range of at least 4,000 kilometers, can hit USA bases in Guam from the Chinese mainland and is thus called a "Guam killer". Russian officials claimed that the United States assertions about the alleged breach of the pact by Moscow were meant to shift the blame for the pact's demise to Russia.

But Russia's response to the USA didn't stop there.

Earlier last week U.S. intelligence officials called attention to efforts by China and Russian Federation to expand their global influence, particularly in Asia and the Middle East.

But the expert neglects to mention that USA and Russian nuclear submarines can already fire from nearly anywhere at sea, already confusing targets and trajectories and taking minutes to reach Russian forces.
