WASHINGTON - Russia has deployed a new cruise missile despite complaints by US officials that it violates an arms control treaty banning ground-based US and Russian intermediate-range missiles, the New York Times reported on Tuesday, citing unnamed officials.

The United States concluded in 2014 that Russia had violated the 1987 treaty banning ground-launched intermediate range missiles by testing the experimental new cruise missile. US officials have now concluded the SSC-8 missile is operational and has been secretly deployed, the Times reported.
