According to Esper, he would like to count on deploying missiles "within a few months."
“But these things take more time than it seems,” he said.
Earlier, Esper said that in connection with the termination of the INF Treaty, the United States was starting to develop missiles that had previously been banned by this agreement.
Yury Shvytkin, deputy head of the State Duma’s defense committee, told the NSN about the negative consequences of terminating the treaty.
