US attempts to link the question of the reduction of cruise missiles of sea basing with nuclear warheads, propelling it claims to Russia, in particular Russian violations of the INF Treaty, are cynical propaganda, said to RIA Novosti, a Russian military expert, chief editor of the magazine «national defense» Igor Korotchenko.

Earlier the Deputy assistant Secretary of defense for nuclear and missile defense policy Robert Suter said that the United States could abandon plans to deploy cruise missiles, sea-based nuclear cruise missiles, as spelled out in the new doctrine, if Russia will adhere to the Treaty on the elimination of intermediate and shorter-range missiles (INF Treaty).

«For the United States cruise missiles of sea basing remains an element of military power, actual use in existing and future conflicts, so they are not going to limit this kind of weapons, and attempts here to demand something from Russia — it is nothing more than a substitution of concepts and the manipulation of facts,» — said Korotchenko.

According to him the US was not going to conduct any negotiations to limit the deployment of its cruise missiles, sea-based missiles with conventional and nuclear warheads in the Soviet era. No question of such concessions may not be now, said the expert.

The Russian foreign Ministry earlier said that Russia strictly observes its obligations under all international agreements, in particular on the INF Treaty.

The INF Treaty was signed on 8 December 1987 during the visit of Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev in Washington. For the first time got laid the whole class of missile with a strike range of 500 to 1000 and from 1000 to 5500 kilometers, including rockets R-12 and R-14 that the USSR in 1962 had placed in Cuba, which provoked the famous Cuban missile crisis.
