Russia to Respond to US Deployment of Missiles in Asia-Pacific Region, Ambassador Says

Moscow will adequately respond to Washington's deployment of intermediate and short-range missiles in the Asia-Pacific region (APAC), Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov said.

"If American missiles are deployed in APAC, and it was once again confirmed to me yesterday that such missiles would be deployed, then the range of these missiles would reach the Russian Federation, covering strategic targets of tactical nuclear deterrence," Antonov said live on Channel One Russia.
The United States abandoned the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty with Russia in August 2019. The New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START), the last major arms control deal between the US and Russia, expires on February 5, 2021.
