Reuters: Russia warns of global conflict over nuclear pact collapse

MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia said on Saturday that the scrapping of a Cold War era nuclear pact may lead to an arms race and direct confrontation between several global regions, after a proposal by Moscow was rejected in a United Nations vote.

Moscow had put forward a resolution in support of the 1987 Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF) which bans Moscow and Washington from stationing short- and intermediate-range, land-based missiles in Europe.

Russia’s foreign ministry said in a statement that the UN had failed to vote in favor of the proposal.


WNU Editor: We are far from the global conflict that the Kremlin envisions. But Russians have a deep instinctive fear of war, and the Kremlin is playing on it.
