Russia: One of Washington’s ‘most dangerous mistakes’ — Zakharova on US nuclear treaty withdrawal

The possible withdrawal of the United States from the Treaty on the Elimination of Intermediate-Range and Shorter-Range Missiles [INF] could be one of Washington’s “most dangerous mistakes,” said Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova during her weekly briefing in Moscow on Thursday. “Breaking the INF Treaty would be a very dangerous step that will negatively affect international... Еще security and strategic stability. Again, I would like to note that this is fraught with serious risks of drawing entire regions into an arms race,” Zakharova said. “The US is trying to cover up its own direct and obvious violations of the INF,” she added. During the briefing, Zakharova commented on the decision of the court in Ukraine to extend the arrest of RIA Novosti Ukraine Editor-in-Chief Kirill Vyshinsky. She stated that Russia “expressed hope for the release of Kirill Vyshinsky from custody on November 4.” “Unfortunately, Kirill Vyshinsky will remain in custody for another month,” the spokesperson added. Zakharova commented on the statement made by the press secretary for the French government, Benjamin Grieve, on RT and Sputnik. “RT channel has recently received over 70 rejections in an interview from the French officials,” she said. “There is a political order inside France. We have no doubt that it is initiated at the very top in order to form a certain toxic atmosphere around RT and Sputnik,” Zakharova added.
