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.
