Putin Promises to Respond to US After Missile Test

Putin Promises to Respond to US After Missile Test

Just a few short hours ago, Russian President Putin ordered the Russian military to design a "quid pro quo" response to the United States testing out a new U.S. missile that was banned under a now-defunct treaty.

Last Sunday, a modified ground-launch version of a U.S. Navy Tomahawk cruise missile struck it's target dead nuts from over 500 km away. MURICA!

This test followed the United States and Russia withdrawing from the 1987 INF Treaty.

 

 

 

 

At a Security Council earlier today, Putin accused America of waging a propaganda campaign alleging Russian's breached the pact to "untie its hands to deploy the previously banned missiles in different parts of the world."

He then proceeded to order the Defense Ministry to "take comprehensive measures to prepare a symmetrical answer."

The United States claimed it withdrew from the treaty due to Russian violating it first; Moscow of course denied it. Putin also stated that because the missile test came 16 days after the INF treaty's termination, it is proof that the United States has been working on these systems while the treaty was active.

Russian-based military experts agree that Russia could adapt the sea-launched Kalibr cruise missiles for use from ground launchers as retaliation.

What do you think of all of this? Is Putin over-reacting, or just being Putin?
