Moscow: Russian news agencies says Moscow is considering a freeze of US military inspections under arms control treaties in retaliation to Washington`s decision to halt military cooperation with Russia.
Agencies on Saturday carried a statement by an unidentified Defence Ministry official saying that Moscow sees the US move as a reason to suspend US inspections in Russia in line with the New START nuclear arms reduction treaty and the 2011 Vienna agreement between Russia and NATO on confidence-building measures.

Such comments carried by Russian news agencies are used to convey government statements.
The US and the European Union have introduced sanctions over Russia in response to its move to send troops that have taken control of Ukraine`s Black Sea peninsula of Crimea.
