Russian lawmakers will consider rescinding ratification of global nuclear test ban, speaker says

Friday’s statement follows President Vladimir Putin’s warning a day earlier that Moscow could consider rescinding ratification of the pact since the United States has never ratified it.

Many Russian hawks have spoken in favor of resuming the tests.
