MOSCOW, 9 Nov — RIA Novosti. Russia shouldn't change the strategy of nuclear weapons yet for a case of withdrawal of the USA from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF Treaty) as no, the concrete aggravated military situation, for example, the USA doesn't develop land ballistic missiles in Europe, the editor-in-chief of the Arsenal of the Fatherland magazine, the member of advisory council of board of Victor Murakhovsky Military Industrial Complex has told RIA Novosti on Friday. Earlier the chief of general staff of RVSN (1994-1996) colonel general Victor Yesin has said in an interview to the Zvezda newspaper that the Russian system of automatic reciprocal nuclear attack "Perimeter" can be useless in case of the military conflict. According to Yesin, after withdrawal of the USA from the INF Treaty the Russian Perimeter system can lose the efficiency as the American medium-range missiles placed in Europe will be able to destroy the main part of the Russian rocket means in the European part of the country. The remained rockets can be intercepted by the American missile defense. In these conditions, according to Yesin, Russia should revise the military doctrine and in an expedited manner to market medium-range missiles. "Unless the answer of Russia in case of withdrawal of the USA from the contract is required? Russia shouldn't change the strategy of nuclear weapons. Another matter if the USA decides to develop land ballistic missiles in Europe. It is necessary to estimate a concrete military situation. The USA has no arms getting under the INF Treaty. When they create this weapon, it will be possible to speak about change of our plans" — Murakhovsky has told. Earlier the U.S. President Donald Trump has reported that Washington will withdraw from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty. According to him, America will increase nuclear potential until the others "do not recover", then Washington will be ready to stop this process and to start reduction arms ̆. He has explained that this message is addressed first of all to China and Russia. In recent years Moscow and Washington regularly accuse each other of breach of contract about the INF Treaty. Russia repeatedly stated that it strictly observes the obligations under the contract. Lavrov noted that Moscow has very serious questions to the USA concerning implementation of the contract by Americans. In particular, in Moscow specify that the United States place on the land — on military base in Romania and also in Poland — the installations capable to launch shock cruise "Tomahawk" missiles that is forbidden by the contract. The Russian side also pays attention that the USA develops shock UAVs, finance researches on creation of a cruise missile of land basing.
