This is coolbert:
Over six years after having been tested for the first time [?] the United States is finally protesting the development of this weapons system. AN OUTLAWED BY TREATY CRUISE MISSILE!
The Russian R-500 / Iskander-K GLCM.
Russian ground-launched-cruise-missile [GLCM] of intermediate range, PROHIBITED BY BILATERAL TREATY!!
"R-500 / Iskander-K President Barack Obama informed Russian President Vladimir Putin in a letter on 28 July 2014 of the United States' determination that Russia violated the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty. The US said Russia tested a new ground-launched cruise missile, breaking the INF treaty that President Ronald Reagan signed with Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev."
GLCM of certain range NOT TO BE TESTED, OR POSSESSED!
"the treaty’s obligations “not to possess, produce or flight-test a ground-launched cruise missile with a range capability of 500 kilometers to 5,500 kilometers or to possess or produce launchers of such missiles...."
AND ONLY NOW PRESUMABLY IN RESPONSE TO THE UKRAINE CRISIS THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION IS MAKING THIS PUBLIC?
From a forum and as posted over six years ago a discussion of the R-500 AND with a series of sources from the time :
"22nd December 2007, Well its all about the title. This system was tested back on the 29th May this year  . . . The question that thus has to be asked is what on earth is so special about this and why has it just appeared on the radar in such a high profile way as far as official Russian interest is concerned?"
And the question can be legitimately asked what took so long to discover this test and development of an outlawed and banned weapon and protest same?
