Russia has no plans to leave the Treaty on Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) and completely fulfills its obligations on it, but if the USA deploy land-based missiles in Europe, the country could leave the treaty, chairman of the Federation Council’s Defense and Security committee Viktor Ozerov told RIA Novosti.

Earlier, the Associated Press reported that the US administration is considering the possibility to deploy land-based missiles in Europe in response to the alleged violations of the Treaty on Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) committed by the Russian side.
