Putin's new laser to fend off missiles

Half of Europe in crosshairs of Russian missile attack – Ukraine intel

Earlier, Russia's President Vladimir Putin also warned that Moscow will start developing missiles now banned under the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty if the U-S pulls out of the 19-87 accord.

Stoltenberg said a compromise solution is still possible. Mike Pompeo, secretary of state, said the U.S. was giving Russian Federation 60 days to comply with its terms.

"Russia's actions gravely undermine American national security and that of our allies and partners".

Russian Federation has repeatedly denied breaking the Cold War treaty.

The US and NATO say Russia's 9M729 system, also known by the designation SSC-8, violates the INF treaty, which banned ground-launched missiles with a range of 500 to 5,500 kilometres.

That included the laser system, as well as an underwater nuclear-powered drone and a nuclear-powered cruise missile.

The NATO chief said the alliance is also preparing a contingency plan in case the Kremlin fails to comply and the USA pulls out of the accord.

"This was really arms control at its best and therefore it's a really a big setback if this treaty now breaks totally down", he said.

In October, President Donald Trump declared the United States would pull out of the treaty and build up America's nuclear stockpile "until people come to their senses".

"We are against the destruction of this treaty". Announcing "Peresvet" is Russian leader Vladimir Putin said that there is every reason to believe that due to the complex Russia in this sphere proved to be a step ahead of their competitors.

On Tuesday, the Western military alliance formally accused Russian Federation of breaking the treaty.

However a comment in the Krasnaya Zvezda report that the laser's entry into service is in the "testing regime", could indicate that the weapon is still not qualified for combat and that it has been handed over to the armed forces to conduct pre-introduction tests.

He said Russian Federation had developed "multiple battalions of the SSC-8 missiles" and "its range makes it a direct menace to Europe".

"We strongly support the finding of the United States that Russian Federation is in material breach of its obligations under the INF Treaty".

Gerasimov said the military buildup of the United States and its allies has forced Russian Federation to increase its combat potential to guarantee its security.

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said it was "essential to act in a firm and united way", warning Moscow it would bear the responsibility if the treaty collapsed.
