To justify the U.S. withdrawal from the Treaty on Open Skies, the U.S. administration has put forward the version that Russia is spying on President Donald Trump. This was stated on Fox News by White House National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien.
The official said that the Russian side, while flying over the U.S. in the framework of the Treaty on Open Skies, was overseeing the American leader Donald Trump. According to him, Russian planes flew over the White House, over civilian infrastructure, and could monitor “where the president may be: Camp David or Bedminster. O’Brien explained that the DON was not used properly.
It should be noted that the day before the President of the United States Donald Trump officially announced the withdrawal of the United States from the Treaty on Open Skies. He justified this step by Moscow’s failure to adhere to the terms of the agreement.
