Russia dubs US missile movement near border 'new Cuban Missile Crisis' in ...

The harrowing comments were made by a senior diplomat during a debate on the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF) between Moscow and Washington.

“If it comes to the real deployment of such systems on the ground, the situation will not just get worse, but aggravate to the maximum and we may find ourselves in the situation of a missile crisis pretty close to the Caribbean one.”

Russia has been heavily critical of American plans to deploy missiles in eastern Europe following their surprise withdrawal from the INF treaty.

Mr Ryabkov’s words come amid rising stakes between Washington and Moscow – and the comparison to the 1962 crisis only deepens the split.
