Dr Anna Péczeli argues the fall of the INF Treaty is primarily the result of Russian violation, but European allies and the US are also responsible for its demise.

Former Special Assistant to President George W. Bush, Franklin C, Miller, argues that European states should be mindful of Russian threats and activities and should direct their concerns to Moscow, not to the United States.
