Trump claims Russian Federation has long violated the three-decade-old Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, known as the INF, was signed in 1987 by president Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev.

Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov was quoted as telling state news agency Tass that leaving the treaty "would be a very risky step".

Trump's plan also is causing jitters in Germany, site of peace protests in the early 1980s against the stationing of USA intermediate-range nuclear missiles to counter the threat of Soviet SS-20s.

. Many also argue that the treaty is obsolete, because it doesn't restrict China's proliferation. As a non-signatory, Beijing can develop without constraints intermediate-range nuclear weapons.

Russia, however, has denied any such violation ― and on Sunday, Ryabkov suggested it was the USA that had failed to comply with the pact. The two countries are also at odds over Russian support for the Syrian government in the country's civil war, and the conflict in Ukraine.
