Intermediate range missile treaty in 1980s

How did the IR weapons treaty in 80s affect the theater tactical nuclear capability of Soviets?
They lost a lot of weapons that could have taken out high value NATO targets at a moment's notice albiet albeit in a nuclear war

But how did the Soviets plan on compensating these gaps in their tactical and theater nuclear weapons?

Did these reductions severely cripple the tactical nuke capability of Soviets in the late 80s ?

Since the Soviet system was so poorly run that they cannot even account for the various nuclear warheads, I doubt it hampered them at all. If anything, the just conveniently "forgot" what they had stored in certain areas.

If it was done by Gorbatchev, it certainly crippled something in USSR. And there was certainly nothing to compensate it.
