Russia accuses US of hypocrisy over missile plans

The United States accused Moscow of aggressive intentions over the development of its missile defense systems to justify its own weapons programs by a "foreign threat," Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

Commenting on the article posted on the US Department of Defense's website, the Russian Foreign Ministry stated: "Clearly, there are unscrupulous attempts to ascribe to us some aggressive and dangerous plans, this time in missile defense. Unmistakably, this is about the United States trying to justify its own large-scale and expensive programs for creating and modernizing weapons and plans to build up its military presence around the world."

Earlier today, US President Donald Trump claimed that no administration before him has been as "tough on Russia" as he has.
