On Bloomberg TV’s Global Outlook, the Carnegie Endowment’s James Acton and Bloomberg’s Jonathan Allen discussed accusations that Russia has violated a 1987 missile treaty.

James Acton told Bloomberg TV that the United States does not have “any evidence that Russia has deployed prohibited missiles in large numbers, so I think right now the treaty does act as something of a constraint on the Russians, albeit an impartial one.”

Acton added that if Russia were to withdraw from the treaty and deploy missiles in large numbers, that would be of significant concern to the United States’ European allies. Acton also suggested that the United States take specific and targeted steps so that the Russians do not enjoy the benefits of their violation of the treaty.
