Russian President Vladimir Putin stressed the need to monitor US actions in terms of deploying short and medium-range missiles previously banned by the INF Treaty in Europe and the Asia-Pacific regions during his speech at a Russian Defence Ministry meeting, APA reports citing Sputnik.

Moscow earlier called on Washington to avoid deploying the missiles near Russia's borders following the US withdrawal from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty in August 2019. The Kremlin, in turn, promised not to deploy its own missiles if Washington accepts the offer.
