Cold War

President Vladimir Putin said Thursday that Russia would suspend its compliance with a treaty on conventional arms in Europe that was forged at the end of the Cold War, opening a fresh and intensive dispute in the souring relations between NATO and the Kremlin.

Putin's announcement, made in his annual address to Parliament, underscored the Kremlin's anger at the United States for proposing to install a new missile defense system in Europe, which the Bush administration insists is meant to counter potential threats from North Korea and Iran. Putin suggested that Russia would use its future compliance with the treaty as a bargaining point in that disagreement with United States.
