A committee of the upper house of the Russian parliament has recommended that the National Security Council change the rules on the use of nuclear weapons.
The non-binding recommendation relates to a response to a hypothetical use of hypersonic and other non-nuclear strategic weapons against Russia. The announcement comes after President Vladimir Putin warned the United States against its decision to withdraw from the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces treaty. He vowed that Moscow will be ready to take concrete steps should the U-S deliver on its announced plan. In October, U-S president Donald trump said he had decided to exit from the landmark bilateral nuclear arms control treaty.
