The Treaty on Open Skies may follow a "domino effect" and fall apart if other countries follow the US lead and withdraw from the agreement under pressure from Washington, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov warned on Saturday, APA reports citing Sputnik.

"I would not want the [Open Skies] Agreement to fall apart. We admit that a ‘domino effect’ is possible and that the countries most zealously supporting the United States, on various issues, may consider such a possibility under pressure from Washington. We would not like this, because then the agreement will inevitably come collapse", Ryabkov said.
