In early March against the background of the U.S. decision to suspend its obligations under the Treaty on intermediate-range and shorter-range Poroshenko said that Ukraine reserves the right to create modern and effective weapons for self-defense.

Remember, the US Secretary of state Mike Pompeo announced the termination of U.S. participation in the Treaty on the elimination of intermediate range (the INF Treaty), since February 2 was the deadline of the ultimatum that the United States presented Russia on 4 December 2018. The United States promised to withdraw from the INF Treaty if Russia will not return to the performance of its obligations under the contract within 60 days. Washington believes that Russia has violated the INF Treaty that created 9М729 missiles, which can fly more than 500 kilometers.
