Russia and U.S. to Review 1987 Arms Treaty on Thursday

Russian and U.S. officials will meet in Moscow on Thursday to discuss compliance with a 1987 arms treaty, Interfax news agency quoted a Russian Foreign Ministry official as saying.

The Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty eliminated nuclear and conventional ground-launched ballistic and cruise missiles with a range of 500-5,500 kilometers (300-3,400 miles.)

"We believe that this is an important agreement and that it should be properly executed," Interfax cited Mikhail Ulyanov, head of the non-proliferation and arms control department at the Foreign Ministry, as saying.

A Russian general said earlier this year Russia could pull out of the accord.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
