A spokesman for the Russian Foreign Ministry accused the United States of breaking the Treaty on the Elimination of Intermediate-Range and Shorter-Range Missiles and the creation of a "unipolar world." It is reported by Interfax.

"This decision fits into the course of the United States on the way out of those international legal agreements that impose equal obligations on partners and make the concept of its own" exclusiveness "vulnerable. The main motive is the dream of a unipolar world," the spokesman said.

Earlier, Trump, speaking to reporters, said the United States is withdrawing from the Treaty on the Elimination of Intermediate-Range and Shorter-Range Missiles (INF), because Russia has violated it and did not provide a report.
‘Russia has violated the agreement. They have been violating it for many years,” Trump said after a rally in Elko, Nevada. “And we’re not going to let them violate a nuclear agreement and go out and do weapons and we’re not allowed to,’ Trump claimed. 
The agreement has constrained the U.S. from developing new weapons, but America will begin developing them unless Russia and China agree not to possess or develop the weapons, Trump said. China is not currently a party to the pact.
The Treaty on the Elimination of Intermediate-Range and Shorter-Range Missiles was signed in 1987 by General Secretary of the CPSU Central Committee Mikhail Gorbachev and US President Ronald Reagan.

The agreement prohibits the parties to manufacture ground-based ballistic and cruise nuclear missiles with a range from 500 to 5,500 km, as well as their testing and deployment.
