Russia to build mid-range nuclear missiles after INF treaty withdrawal

Russia to build mid-range nuclear missiles after INF treaty withdrawal Russia's defense minister said the nation intends to build mid-range, nuclear-capable missiles. The announcement came less than a week after the United States and Russia decided to abandon the INF Treaty. Russia will build ground-based intermediate-range nuclear missiles within two years, the nation's Defense Secretary Sergei Shoigu said on Tuesday. Shoigu said a land-based version of the navy's Kalibr cruise missile and a new land-based hypersonic missile must be built in 2019 or 2020. © picture-alliance/dpa/TASS/Russian Defense Ministry Press Office/A.

Russia's military and state-sponsored media have reacted with a fire and fury of their own to the news that the US will exit the Intermediate Nuclear Forces treaties, one of the last barriers to a full-on Cold War-like arms race in Europe - and there's already talk of a nuclear doomsday device visiting the US.

The INF treaty banned land-based nuclear capable missiles with a range between 300 and 3,200 miles in 1987 when Russia and the US had populated much of Europe with intermediate-ranged nuclear missiles. The ban eliminated this entire class of missiles and went down as one of the most successful acts of arms control ever.

Russian media appeared to threaten Europe and the world by saying that a new nuclear torpedo could create towering tsunami waves and destroy The US has no defenses against such a weapon. Russia and its media often overstate the capability and meaning of their nuclear weapons, but

The US and all of NATO concluded recently that Russia had spent years developing a banned nuclear-capable weapon, thereby making the treaty meaningless. The US responded by saying it would withdraw and design its own treaty-busting missiles. Russia said it would do the same, though many suspect they already have the missiles built.

But Russia's response to the US didn't stop there.

A BBC review of Russian newspapers, some state-owned and all adhering to state narratives or censored by the Kremlin, revealed some truly apocalyptic ideas.

"If the Americans deploy their new missiles near Russia's borders, and in response we deploy ours, then of course, the risk of [nuclear] conflict rises sharply," an arms control expert told one paper.

Experts warn of ‘most severe crisis in nuclear arms control since the 1980s’ as Trump confirms US will leave INF agreement.

President says Russia has new line of nuclear -capable weapons that can breach US defences. Putin also mentioned a nuclear - armed underwater drone likely to be the Kanyon or Status-6. According to state media , the intercontinental ballistic missile is able to fly 6,800 miles with a payload

"If US missiles are deployed in Poland or the Baltic states, they'll be able to reach Russia in minutes. In such an event, the way Russia currently conceives using nuclear weapons, as a retaliatory strike, becomes impossible, since there won't be time to work out which missiles have been launched against Russia, what their trajectory and their targets are," he continued. "This is why there is now a temptation for both us and for them to adopt the doctrine of s preemptive strike."

This expert argues that the INF's demise means both the US and Russia now have to consider nuking the other at the first sign of conflict because missile attacks won't be as predictable as longer-range salvos from the continental US and Russia's mainland.

But the expert neglects to mention that US and Russian nuclear submarines can already fire from almost anywhere at sea, already confusing targets and trajectories and taking minutes to reach Russian forces.

Dropping weapons treaty would let US update its nuclear arsenal

Dropping weapons treaty would let US update its nuclear arsenal The US scrapping of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty with Russia could launch a new arms race, but will also allow the United States to update its nuclear arsenal, a publicly stated goal for the past year. President Donald Trump announced Friday the US was suspending its obligations under the INF treaty as of Saturday and starting a process to withdraw in six months. NATO has said that US allies "fully support" its withdrawal from the pact, and agreed that Russia's 9M729 ground-launched cruise missile systems violates the treaty.

The US national security adviser, John Bolton , has confirmed that the US will withdrawal from the landmark intermediate- range nuclear forces treaty (INF) after meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin and senior Russian officials. Speaking in Moscow, Bolton said that Russia had been

Finally, Russian media turned to what's quickly becoming a propaganda crutch in communicating Moscow's might: The Doomsday device.

Russia recently admitted to having built one of the more insane nuclear weapons of all time in the form of an undersea torpedo with a 100-megaton nuclear warhead that's designed to be unstoppable to all current missile defenses and create tsunami-sized waves and a radioactive hellstorm that stomps out life on earth for thousands of square miles for decades.

Since they announced the weapon, they've already used it to threaten Europe. But now with the INF treaty in tatters, a military expert told a Russian paper that the doomsday device could see use.

"It cannot be excluded that one of the Poseidon with a 100 megaton nuclear warhead will lay low off the US coast, becoming 'the doomsday weapon.' Thus an attack on Russia, will become a suicidal misadventure," the paper states.

Russia: we would be open to U.S. proposals for new nuclear pact

The Russian government has said it would be forced "to take measures" if the United States began developing new missile systems, ratcheting up the rhetoric after US President Donald Trump said he would ditch a Cold War-era nuclear arms treaty .

This paper also declined to mention that the US and Russia's current nuclear posture already guarantees any mutual nuclear exchanges would lead to the total destruction of either country.

Russia's Poseidon doomsday device doesn't change the mutually assured destruction dynamic between the Washington and Moscow, it only provides a way to destroy more natural life in the process.

Russia's media may swerve into bombast, but Russia's actual military has already announced plans to build more weapons and extend the range of current weapons to counter the US in what experts peg as the next great nuclear standoff.

Pentagon official: No plans to develop new missile system amid end of Russian arms treaty.
