Moscow on Friday announced the formal end of the Cold War-era Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty, after Washington launched the withdrawal process this year.

"On August 2, 2019, at the initiative of the US side, the treaty between the Soviet Union and the US on the elimination of their medium-range and shorter-range missiles... was terminated," the foreign ministry said in a statement.
