US Push for Scrapping Nuclear Treaty With Russia

US media reported that Congress is preparing several bills, the provisions of which would require the Pentagon to violate the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty between the United States and Russia.
According to Politico, the US Senate will soon debate a provision in its version of the defense policy bill, which would set aside $65 million and also require the military to reintroduce a missile with a range of between 500 and 5,500 kilometers, Sputnik reported. The bill in the House of Representatives will point out that while the new missiles would be conventional, they, along with nuclear missiles, would still be considered banned under the nuclear disarmament agreement.
According to analyst Ilya Kharlamov, the agreement marked the first real disarmament step by the two powers and contributed a lot to global stability and security.
