Russia: Will send missiles to Cuba as US withdrawal from nuclear treaty is way to WAR

Retired Russian lieutenant-general Evgeny Buzhinskiy said several landmark nuclear disarmament treaties between Moscow and Washington are on the “verge of collapsing”.

He said the administrations of successive US presidents have “ruined” the “whole construction of nuclear arms stability”, including Donald Trump, who has threatened to pull out of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty.

Buzhinskiy, chairman of Moscow-based think tank PIR Center, believes US nuclear missile build-up will resume in Europe if Trump unilaterally withdraws from the INF treaty.

In response the Russian president, Buzhinskiy said, will have no option but to deploy nuclear-tipped missiles to Cuba, whose ruling Communist Party retains close diplomatic ties with the Kremlin.

Buzhinskiy, who served with the Russian army for 16 years, said tit-for-tat missile deployments could result in a second Cuban Missile Crisis in the “worst case scenario”.
