“Russia has refused to take any steps to return (to) real and verifiable compliance. We will provide Russia and the other treaty parties with formal notice that the United States is withdrawing from the INF treaty, effective in six months,” Pompeo said.

“If Russia does not return to full and verifiable compliance with the treaty within this six-month period by verifiably destroying its INF-violating missiles, their launchers, and associated equipment, the treaty will terminate,” the news agency reads.

Russia informs that the range of the missiles goes beyond the treaty. 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 developing, Novator 9M729.
