Russia has responded to USA withdrawing from arms treaty by announcing it has plans to build more missiles. News that USA will exit Intermediate Nuclear Forces Treaty (INFT) and Russia's response raised concerns about new arms race. Moscow immediately said it would end its own involvement in arms limitation treaty. In addition, Russian media stated that Russia's military would develop "100 megaton nuclear doomsday device" in response to USA pulling out of treaty. The INFT was signed in 1987. It was attempt to limit number of missiles that were capable of hitting many European capitals. It banned both countries from using short- and medium-range missiles.

media have written extensively about new "super-missile". This is unstoppable, undersea, 100-megaton nuclear warhead. Experts say it is so fast it can evade all current missile defense systems. They also say it is powerful enough to cause catastrophic devastation, such as creating 100-meter tsunami waves and enough radiation to wipe out life for thousand kilometers. One Russian newspaper wrote: "One of 100 megaton nuclear warheads will sit off US coast. Any US attack on Russia would be suicidal misadventure." However, paper omitted to mention concept of M.A.D. - Mutually Assured Destruction. This scary scenario sees both countries wiping each other out.
