Russia decries US missile test as 'escalation of military tensions'

AFP  |  Moscow 

Moscow on Tuesday said that the United States was ramping up military tensions by testing a medium-range cruise missile weeks after tearing up a pact with Russia.

"This is all a cause of regret. The US has obviously taken a course towards escalation of military tensions. We won't react to provocations," Russian deputy foreign minister Sergei Ryabkov told state agency TASS.
