US accusations against Moscow have no grounds - Lavrov

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov stated on Friday that Washington's allegations about Moscow's violations of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF) have no grounds, pointing out that the United States never submitted any documents proving its accusations against Russia. The minister stated that Washington urged Moscow to end or change production of its 9M729 missile system due to its alleged violation of the INF. However, Lavrov noted that the missile system production was conducted entirely in compliance with the INF framework.

lavrov also voiced his concerns, speaking at the ministerial meeting of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSC), that Russia recorded increased military activity of some members close to its borders. "We, the Russian delegation, have expressed our concern with concrete examples of the unhealthy situation that has developed in the OSCE area, including the growth of military and political tensions," Lavrov stated.
