MOSCOW: Russia says it will exit the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces treaty in six months, as part of its response to the US pullout from the agreement.

Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin said at the weekend that Moscow has suspended the Cold War-era pact after Washington announced to withdraw from it.
