​On 4 December 2018, NATO Allies declared that Russia has developed and fielded the 9M729 missile system, violating the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty and posing significant risks to Euro-Atlantic security. We fully support the assessment that Russia's covert testing, production and fielding of this ground-launched cruise missile system is a material breach of the INF Treaty.
