Reuters , Thursday 9 Mar 2017

Russia's Kremlin on Thursday rejected U.S. accusations that it had violated the "spirit and intent" of an arms control treaty.

"Russia was, is and will abide by all international obligations, including those coming from the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty... even when it is not entirely in Russia's interests," Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told a conference call with reporters.

Vice Chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff General Paul Selva said on Wednesday that Russia had deployed a land-based cruise missile that violates the "spirit and intent" of an arms control treaty and poses a threat to NATO.
