Russian President Vladimir Putin told reporters that Russia will withdraw from a landmark nuclear weapons treaty after the Trump administration announced Friday that it would pull out of the pact.
“We will respond quid pro quo,” Putin told reporters on Saturday. “Our American partners have announced they were suspending their participation in the treaty, and we will do the same.”
“They have announced they will conduct research and development, and we will act accordingly,” Putin added.
President Trump on Friday accused Moscow of violating the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty, which was signed between then-President Reagan and Soviet Union leader Mikhail Gorbachev in 1987.
Here is the State Department Press Conference on the Suspension.
