Russia's new laser weapon systems enter into service

  • Russian combat laser systems go on experimental combat duty

But Mr Putin says the accusation is a pretext for the United States to leave the pact.

President Trump said in...

Analysts say Russian Federation sees the weapons as a cheaper alternative to conventional forces.

However they backed U.S. claims that Russian Federation has land-based nuclear missiles based in Europe.

Other countries, like the USA and China, are also developing directed energy platforms.

Arriving for talks with Nato foreign ministers, EU foreign affairs chief Federica Mogherini urged the two countries to save the treaty, saying it had "guaranteed peace and security in European territory for 30 years now".

If Russia does not comply within the 60-day deadline, the United States will begin the six-month process of formally withdrawing from the INF treaty.

Warring sides agree to release prisoners as Yemen peace talks begin
The impasse is on vivid display in Hodeida, a Red Sea port city where Yemen imports 70 percent of its food and humanitarian aid. Saudi-led airstrikes against the rebels are compounding the misery - wiping out entire neighborhoods and destroying hospitals.

The US won strong backing for its position from the rest of the NATO allies, who said in a joint statement that it was "now up to Russian Federation to preserve the INF treaty".

The Russian Foreign Ministry's response comes after US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced that Washington would suspend its participation in the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty in 60 days "unless Russia returned to full compliance with the agreement".

However a comment in the Krasnaya Zvezda report that the laser's entry into service is in the "testing regime", could indicate that the weapon is still not qualified for combat and that it has been handed over to the armed forces to conduct pre-introduction tests.

In Brussels, EU diplomatic chief Federica Mogherini urged Russian Federation and the U.S. to save the treaty, warning that Europe did not want to become a battlefield for global powers once again, as it had been during the Cold War.

Signed in 1987 by then United States president Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev, the last Soviet leader, the INF resolved a crisis over Soviet nuclear-tipped ballistic missiles targeting Western capitals.

He reportedly chose not to withdraw from the treaty under pressure from European leaders, who said such a move could restart an arms race. Much of the information about the complex remains classified, but stated that he allowed Russian Federation to get ahead of their competitors in the field of laser weapons.
