Why did Gorbachev sign the INF treaty?
- Nuclear weapons were expensive but didn’t add to Soviet security.
- Soviet economy would never recover spending on nuclear weapons
- Believed would win him popularity in the West & make profitable trade deals with west.
- Reagan persuaded him that the USA has no intention of invading USSR.
- Believed political/economic measures more effective in guaranteeing Russia’s security than military strength
