Locals in New York City reacted to news of US President Donald Trump’s confirmation that Washington plans to leave a nuclear weapons treaty with Russia on Saturday. «It sounds like a terrible idea, it sounds crazy, crazy as he is,» one local said, adding «I think we're on the brink anyway of some kind of nuclear catastrophe.» Another local echoed her remarks, calling the news «Crazy. Simply... Еще crazy.» Trump confirmed on Saturday that the US is going to unilaterally withdraw from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, which was signed by former US President Ronald Reagan and Soviet General Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev in 1987. The treaty banned both nuclear and conventional missiles with ranges between 500 and 1000 km (310-620 miles). Washington has accused Russia of violating the treaty.
