The U.S. formally announced its withdrawal from the ‘Open Skies Treaty’ due to Russian violation of the pact.

On Sunday, the United States officially exited the decades-old treaty. This came after the Trump administration first stated its intent to pull out of the agreement back in May.

The administration pointed to Russia as the catalyst of the move. They alleged the country barred surveillance flights over Russian territories.

The treaty permits a collection of 34 countries to perform unarmed surveillance flights over other countries to collect data on their military operations.
