In 2014, the Obama administration condemned Russia's testing of the cruise missile, arguing that it violated a Cold War-era treaty banning land-based American and Russian intermediate-range missiles.
The deployment of the missile violates the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty, as reported by The Hill.
President Donald Trump, who has frequently praised Russian leader Vladimir Putin, has not publicly commented on these Russian actions.
"The way the White House responded to the supposedly new revelations about General Flynn over the past few weeks is downright suspicious and only confirms the need for an independent, bipartisan investigation modelled after the 9/11 commission to look into other connections to Russian Federation", said Democratic National Committee senior advisor Zac Petkansas.
It happened secretly in December during the Obama administration, but it is now up to President Trump to respond. This must be what Trump was talking about on January 7 when he tweeted, "When I am President, Russia will respect us far more than they do now".
This makes the treaty a possible topic for discussion by Jim Mattis, the Secretary of Defense, in his upcoming NATO meeting, since it has stirred restlessness in the white house with its potential damage to US-Russian relations.
Trump has in the past expressed interest in arms reduction talks with the Kremlin and indicated he would seek a new opening with Moscow.
The paper speculates that deploying the missiles "could also increase the military threat to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation nations".
Trump himself, though, repeatedly praised Putin on the campaign trail as well as since being elected, while offering few if any criticisms. However, Russian lawmakers have told Russian news outlets it won't.
The deployment has stirred concern in Congress, where Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain called it a "significant military threat to USA forces in Europe and our North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies". While one remains at a test site in the country's southeast, another has been moved to an operational base elsewhere.
But because the USA upheld its end of the treaty, it has no comparable nuclear-capable cruise missiles with which to match Russian Federation.
