The US military-industrial complex for a long time has been developing a capacity to create intermediate and shorter-range missiles, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on Wednesday at a joint briefing of the Foreign and Defense Ministries, dedicated to Russia’s 9M729 missile.

“It is no secret that research and development activities concerning various missile systems that would be contrary to the spirit and the letter of the INF Treaty have been going in the US on for a long time,” he said.

“According to available information, the US military-industrial corporations for a long time have been actively developing a capacity to produce new missiles,” Ryabkov added.

According to the senior Russian diplomat, since June 2017, large-scale work has been going on to upgrade the technical resources of a production facility in Tucson, Arizona, which is capable of manufacturing all kinds of missiles, including cruise missiles of intermediate and shorter range.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
