Earlier, the U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo stated that on February 2, the country would suspend participation in the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty with Russia.

Russia accused the U.S. of making out a false excuse to leave the treaty which they want to leave anyway so that they could develop new missiles. Russia has also declined the U.S. demand to destroy the new missile it's been working on, Novator 9M279.
