What you are looking at here is how much Russia (Putin) controls Trump. Russia has been moving missiles closer to the border of the Eastern NATO members for some time now. Russia wanted out of this treaty for a long time but did not want to be the one to do it. Now that their boy Trump is President they just gave him the order and he did it. Then Russia tells all the are getting out of the treaty because the US left first. Sounds a lot better to the world and is another step toward the bottom by the US. Trump at work making Russia great again, and destroying the US.

So Russia stepped back from compliance in 2014, right about the time lil donny was making serious noise about running for President.

 

Did Putin make that move because he was confident in 2 years his KGB-trained PsyOps Warriors would elect a ToadPOTUS whom he could control?

 

Is there another rational explanation?


I'm sure it was all in the works. The "Art Of The Deal", ya' know !

I believe that Trump is now trying to dispel notions that he is Putin's ally. and after hearing what the National Intelligent people had to say about all the threats that we have now in this country. he felt that not doing something drastic to Russia would not look  good  for him Specially with the State of the Union Address coming now so soon.

So again, he is confusing his followers  and providing them with excuses to say that Trump has nothing to do with Russia.

sorry, I simply believe that this is some strategy to calm down the fears of many

Putin/Russia Also Suspending Nuclear Arms Treaty

Putin says Russia also suspending key nuclear arms treaty after U.S. move to withdraw
President Donald Trump on Friday announced the U.S. intention to withdraw from the INF Treaty, accusing Russia of violating the agreement "with impunity."

President Vladimir Putin announced Saturday that Russia will suspend a key Cold War-era missile treaty with the United States following the Trump administration's move to withdraw a day earlier.

"We will respond quid pro quo," Putin said during a televised meeting with foreign and defense ministers. "Our American partners have declared that they suspend their participation in the deal, we suspend it as well."

 

Putin said Russia will start work on creating new missiles, including hypersonic ones, and told ministers not to initiate disarmament talks with Washington, accusing the U.S. of being slow to respond to such moves.

Putin said that Russia will not increase its military budget for the new weapons and it won't deploy its weapons in Europe and other regions unless the United States does so.

"We must not and will not be drawn into a costly arms race," he said.

 

 
 

President Donald Trump said Friday that the U.S. would be pulling out of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty, blaming Russia for breaching the pact.

"We cannot be the only country in the world unilaterally bound by this treaty, or any other," Trump said in a statement.

Moscow has denied the allegations while accusing Washington of violating the treaty and calling for inspections of U.S. arms.

The 1987 treaty, signed by President Ronald Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, bans deployment and required the destruction of ground-based missiles with a range of between 310 to 3,410 miles. The pact mitigated weapons that had become a point of crisis during the Cold War and has been viewed for decades as a model for arms control agreements between major powers.

The U.S. has claimed since 2014 that Russia was violating the deal, and senior Trump administration officials said on Friday they had tried 35 times through diplomatic engagements to bring Russia back into compliance.

"We provided Russia an ample window of time to mend its ways and for Russia to honor its commitment," Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Friday. "Tomorrow that time runs out."

For Trump, who has repeatedly vexed America's NATO allies with his threats to pull out of the alliance and his demands that members spend more on defense, the decision marked a rare point of agreement. The alliance issued a statement declaring that "allies fully support this action."

"We urge Russia to use the remaining six months to return to full and verifiable compliance to preserve the INF Treaty," said NATO, formed by Western nations in the wake of World War II as a hedge against Soviet military power in Europe.

Non-proliferation experts have warned that without the deal, the U.S. and Russia will have free rein to deploy land-based missiles, raising fears of a repeat of a Cold War showdown. In the 1980s, the U.S. and the Soviet Union both deployed intermediate-range missiles on the continent.
