The Kremlin on Friday(March 02) rejected a U.S. allegation that Russia had been developing destabilizing weapons systems for over a decade in direct violations of its treaty obligations.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders made the allegation on Thursday after President Vladimir Putin announced an array of new nuclear weapons, saying they could hit almost any point in the world and evade a U.S.-built missile shield.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on a conference call on Friday(March 02) that Russia categorically denied it was in breach of any international arms control pacts.

The White House said U.S. President Donald Trump discussed Putin’s statements on nuclear weapons in separate phone calls with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron on Thursday(March 01).

The leaders“shared their serious concerns” about the statements and agreed they“detract from productive discussion of a range of issues between Russia and the West,” the White House said.
