Russia rebuffs U.S., plans new missiles by 2021

The slow death of a nuclear missile treaty between the United States and Russia received yet another nail in its coffin on Tuesday (February 5), when Moscow announced that it planned to have two new missile systems ready to field by 2021.

This was the scene as Russia's defense minister, Sergei Shoigu, named the timetable.

The two new systems will be in violation of the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty, or INF, a remnant of the Cold War that bans land-based missiles capable of carrying a nuclear warhead that can strike Europe on short notice.

The White House has long claimed that Russia's already been violating the INF in secret for years.

And, last Saturday (February 2) after months of threats, formally notified the Kremlin that it no longer considered itself bound by the treaty.

That same day the Kremlin retaliated and said it was left with no choice but to start weapon development.

Now we know how long they plan to take: two years.

Regardless, there may still be room for a diplomatic breakthrough.

The White House says that while it does consider itself no longer bound by the INF treaty that it has given Russia six months to destroy the allegedly suspect missiles, seen here at a press event.

If it does the Trump administration will reconsider or make a new treaty.
