    If Russia wants a new treaty, then it better include France and the UK. The previous INF was a sellout that
    allowed NATzO to keep IRBMs (from France and UK) while scrapping all those possessed by the USSR. As if the
    USA was the only country in NATzO with IRBMs.

    The USA uses Chinese strategic missile development as well as development by Iran to argue against the INF.
    This is exactly the argument against France and the UK. So any new INF must destroy all IRBMs possessed by
    NATzO in Europe. France and the UK cannot argue sovereignty since they are part of the NATzO alliance.

    Include all NATO states. Otherwise Poland or Romania will receive such missiles.

    Agreed.

    This INF treaty was BS for Russia anyway. They need to start making the new missile now and not wait. USA is already making the missile and Russia knows this. I presume they are making excuses as to why they arent doing it now which is a security issue in itself. I also presume they are saying this while they already have a missile or are in the process of making one that would deal with this issue.

    I still think the Kalibr mobile launcher with 6 ready to fire missiles is the best option. Or fit it somehow with Yakhont missiles

    A proliferation of IRBMs and cruise missiles of intermediate range is no problem for Russia... they have already spent the money developing the sensors to detect such attacks and the missiles to deal with them... it is Europe that is in the shit over this... Russia should not sign anything.
