Russia Shrugs Off U.S. Accusations of Nuclear Treaty Violation

Russia has dismissed accusations that it violated the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Treaty as "unfounded," and said it had its own complaints against the U.S. over the treaty.

"We have amassed many complaints to the U.S. in the context of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Treaty. This includes … production of armed drones by the Americans, which … fall into the category of ground-based cruise missiles as defined by the Treaty," the Foreign Ministry said Wednesday in a statement.
