The Kremlin on Friday rejected US allegation that Russia violated its treaty obligations. The Trump administration had previously accused the Putin regime to have been developing destabilising weapons system for nearly a decade.
White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders on Thursday noted the same shortly after Russian President Vladimir Putin announced an array of new nuclear weapons.
Putin announced that the new weapons system could hit almost any point in the world and is capable of evading a US-built missile shield.
Meanwhile, Russian spokesman Dmitry Peskov denied any breach of international arms control pacts by Russia.
"Russia does not plan to get dragged into any arms race," said Peskov.
