RUSSIAN PRESIDENT THREATENS U.S. WITH NUCLEAR MISSILES
Hey Donald, with ‘friends’ like these, you had better stop making enemies around the world.
Delivering a state of the nation address, Putin said the US abandoned a key arms control pact – the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces treaty – to free its hands to build new missiles and tried to shift the blame for the move on Russia.
Many analysts say abandoning the treaty effectively signalled the start of a new arms race.
The longtime Russian leader warned Washington against deploying any new missiles in Europe following the collapse of the key Cold War-era treaty, saying Moscow would consider it a “serious threat”.
