    According to the US National Intelligence director, Russia has violated the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty by allegedly creating a ground-launched cruise missile.

    NEW YORK (Sputnik) — Russia has allegedly developed a ground-launched cruise missile in violation of the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF), US National Intelligence Director James Clapper said in a testimony on Tuesday.

    “Russia has developed a ground-launched cruise missile that the United States has declared is in violation of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty,” Clapper said. “Russia has denied it is violating the INF Treaty.”
