General: Russia considers pulling out of missile treaty

A Russian general warned that Russia might consider opting out of a U.S.-Soviet arms treaty that scrapped intermediate range missiles, a newspaper reported Wednesday.


The daily Nezavisimaya Gazeta quoted Gen. Vladimir Vasilenko, the head of the Defense Ministry’s research institute, as saying that Russia could consider the redeployment of intermediate range missiles, which were scrapped under a landmark treaty signed in 1987 by President Ronald Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev.
