On the USA threat to quit the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty, Putin also said: "We are essentially witnessing the breakdown of the worldwide arms control order and (the start of) an arms race".

Russian President Vladimir Putin said Thursday that the United States' military presence in Japan was complicating the search for a formal peace treaty between Moscow and Tokyo.

The pact keeps intermediate-range USA and Russian missiles out of Europe. "If missiles appear in Europe, what else can we do?"

James Mattis retiring as Trump's defense secretary in February
Ezra Klein, the founder of the outlet Vox, said on Twitter: "Trump's highest-profile appointee is torching him on the way out". Trump announced Matti's departure shortly after the defense secretary's failed pitch for pullout reversal in a tweet .

The fate of another non-proliferation treaty is under question, the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START), which expires in 2021 and no negotiations have yet been conducted on its extension, he said.

Although he denied his country was in violation of the agreement, he said it had developed powerful airborne and sea-based cruise missiles and could easily roll out land-based missiles if Washington walked away from the pact.

Putin's remarks came one day after the United States said it would withdraw all forces from Syria.

US Indicts Chinese Nationals Over Global Hack Campaign
Intrusion Truth also doxxed APT3 members months before they were formally charged by the United States in 2017. More than 245 organizations were attacked, including NASA labs and US Navy networks.

With relations between Moscow and Washington strained by everything from Ukraine to hacking allegations, Putin said he did not know when a meeting with Trump might take place however.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said yestersday he'd probably have to get married again, but did not say to whom.

He showed no sign of backing down from Russia's stance on Ukraine, accusing his Ukrainian counterpart of provoking a naval standoff with Russian Federation to boost his electoral prospects. Putin said holding another referendum was risky. The Russian coast guard fired upon and seized three Ukrainian naval vessels and 24 seamen when they tried to sail from the Black Sea into the Sea of Azov in what the US and its North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies condemned as unjustified use of force by Russia.

Nintendo Switch is the fastest-selling video game system of this generation
For the second time in as many months, Nintendo's PR push focused on the USA only and didn't provide any updated global numbers. Nintendo said that since the system's launch in March 2017 to November 2018, Nintendo sold more than 8.7 million units.

As for what he described as USA reluctance to extend the New START nuclear Arms Reduction Treaty, he said: "You aren't interested? But it will be very bad for the whole of humankind, because it would take us to a very risky area".
