February 5, 2019 (Washington D.C.) – The Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty negotiated by former U.S. President Ronald Reagan and  Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev may soon be history. Last week, President Donald Trump accused Russia of violating the treaty for years and announced that the U.S. would no longer honor its commitments under the treaty unless Russia complies within six months. Russia claimed it is not in violation and retaliated Friday by announcing it is pulling out of the landmark pact.
