MOSCOW. Aug 14 (Interfax) – The head of the State Duma International Affairs Committee, Alexei Pushkov, has not ruled out the possibility that Russia could withdraw from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty.

“Russia is not planning a series of denunciations of international agreements but it could exit those which no longer meet its national interests, those such as the INF Treaty,” Pushkov wrote on Twitter on Thursday.
