New arms race started by US pulling out of missile treaty - Putin

New arms race started by US pulling out of missile treaty - Putin | 02 March 2018 | Russian President Vladimir Putin has denied accusations he revived an arms race by unveiling Russia's new nuclear deterrent. That was done by US President [sic] George W. Bush killing a 30-year-old missile treaty in 2002, he told NBC. In an interview with NBC on Thursday, the Russian leader brushed off claims in the Western media that by introducing new nuclear-powered missiles, including the hypersonic Sarmat, he has signaled a new arms race. The alarmist rhetoric that fills Western news outlets is just another form of propaganda, Putin said...Putin blamed Washington's 2002 withdrawal from the 1972 Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty (ABM Treaty) for escalating the confrontation.
