Russia follows US move withdrawing from Nuclear Treaty

Russia has suspended its involvement in the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF), a day after the US made a similar announcement. 

Washington has accused Moscow of repeatedly violating the terms of the pact.

The Trump administration said they will serve formal notice and withdraw altogether in six months.

From Washington, our correspondent Daniel Ryntjes reports.
