Russia’s Defence Ministry holds a news conference for military attaches, and Russian and foreign media on the 9M729 missile system in Moscow, Wednesday, January 23.

The US has previously accused Russia of violating the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces treaty, saying that 9M729 missiles (also known as SSC-8) do not comply with the agreement.

On December 6, 2018, Andrea Thompson, Undersecretary for Arms Control at the State Department, called for Russia to end or modify the 9M729 missile system.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova confirmed Russia’s full compliance with the INF treaty, as the missile falls within the allowed range.
