Russia Violates Treaty, Deploys Cruise Missile

  • Secretly deployed Russian cruise missile violates arms control treaty officials say

Russia's secret deployment of a new cruise missile may constitute a violation of a crucial arms control agreement dating back to the Cold War, Trump administration officials told the New York Times Tuesday.

The Obama administration said in 2014 that Russia had tested the ground-based missile, violating the 1987 treaty that banned American and Russian land-based intermediate-range missiles.

Officials say Russian Federation secretly deployed a cruise missile in violation of a treaty that helped end the Cold War.

The White House did not immediately respond to CNBC's request for comment. While Trump's residency is still relatively new, much speculation has already been made that Trump's relationship with Russia, and especially Russian President Vladimir Putin, is a little too close for comfort.

This latest development comes as the SSV-175 Viktor Leonov, a Russian intelligence-gathering ship, was spotted roaming the worldwide waters 70 miles off the coast of DE, as it was heading north, officials told Fox News.

The Times reported that former President Barack Obama's administration had tried to persuade Moscow to correct the violation while the missile was still in the testing phase. Today, eager to hype "new" Russian efforts, even if they're nearly a decade old, the New York Times declared these same 2008 missiles a violation of the "landmark arms control treaty".

Moscow also denied that it had violated the INF treaty, which helped end the Cold War between the countries. "Two battalions of cruise missiles don't just magically appear overnight". But the "X" has been removed from current intelligence reports, indicating that American intelligence officials consider the missile to be operational and no longer a system in development.
