Belusov defended his fiery rhetoric by arguing Russia's actions were simply a result of Trump's aggression over the treaty.
Andrei Belousov, deputy head of the Department of Nonproliferation and Arms Control at the Russian Foreign Minister, raised concern over future conflict between the USA and Russia, stating that Moscow will defend its territorial integrity and principles in response to U.S. aggression.
Trump can deploy Tomahawk cruise missiles on ground launchers to the Pacific nearly immediately after withdrawal from the treaty. Russian Federation in turn accuses Washington of breaking the pact and says it is working to answer U.S. questions about the pact.
Putin is "not bluffing" about his threat to destroy United States nuclear missiles hosted by European countries, a former Russian general has said.
In March, Mr Putin unveiled what he said was a including nuclear devices immune to enemy interception. Instead, Moscow has accused Washington of breaching the treaty with its missile defense installations in Europe, an allegation the State Department has refuted.
When asked about Trump's threat to pull out of INF, Putin said: "If they will deliver them to Europe, naturally our response will have to mirror this, and European countries that agree to host them, if things go that far, must understand that they are putting their own territory at risk of a possible counter-strike". We welcome this [desire]", Lavrov said during the program "Moscow.
The INF Treaty was established in 1987 between the leader of the Soviet Union Mikhail Gorbachev and US President Ronald Reagan at the height of the Cold War. An asymmetric response would see the United States deploy different types of weapons to account for Russia's moves, or take other measures.
If the United States made good on its pledge to leave the treaty, Gorbachev said he hoped that U.S. allies would refuse to be what he called launchpads for American missiles which Trump has spoken of developing.
The Treaty is of unlimited duration and prohibits producing, testing or deployment of ballistic and cruise land-based missiles of medium (1,000 to 5,500 kilometers) and small (from 500 to 1,000 kilometers) range.
Mr Putin said the missile, which was tested late past year, had an unlimited range and could penetrate any missile defence. Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova earlier said that the USA has so far provided no evidence to support its accusations. "If they are convinced that we have violated [commitments regarding] the missile's range, it means that they had detected it using satellites".
Buzhinskiy, chairman of Moscow-based think tank PIR Center, said the fate of global security depends on "what the next steps of the United States are". The fact that Beijing has such missiles, while the United States does not, puts the United States at a strategic disadvantage in any conflict with Beijing.
Why? Because the Russians have been violating the INF (Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces) pact for almost a decade, a fact that the Obama administration at first concealed but then announced, when it served its purposes to do so.
