The United States and the Russian Federation will exchange information on missile launches

ITAR-TASS reports that an agreement was signed between the countries on the exchange of information on launches of ICBMs (intercontinental ballistic missile). The document was signed during the regular session of the Bilateral Consultative Commission on the implementation of the START-3 Treaty, held in Geneva from January 24 to February 7 2012.

The new contract determines the amount of information that countries will transmit, and also contains data on the number of launches of ICBMs in 2012, about which countries intend to notify each other. A bilateral advisory panel should hold at least two sessions per year. The first meeting took place in March-April 2011.

The START-3 agreement, which was signed by the countries in spring 2010, entered into force in the 2011 year. The document limits the number of deployed nuclear warheads to 1550 units for each side. In February, 2011 reported that the United States promised to transfer data on Trident missiles delivered to the UK in order to guarantee the fulfillment of the agreement. The strategic arsenal of Great Britain from 1962 was included in the US nuclear planning system.

    F other options besides this agreement could be? None .. One cracked launch and nuclear war ... the main thing in the message is that no matter how our Strategic Missile Forces are poured with mud, they are real power and can’t be stopped by any missile defense .. Otherwise, like American ...

      It's like an anegdot
      2 rockets flew from the mines, one from Russia, another from the United States.
      Well, we met in space .. Well, a Russian rocket says a rumor, let’s say before we get a drink on the track.
      Well, an American says let's drink shorter, they American in well, and Russian took her by the groove and says let's go, I'll take you home))

    As far as I know, all countries of the world exchange information on the launch of missiles (satellite output). Looks like a couple of points were added in Geneva.

      It is. It is even theoretically difficult to imagine the launch of a ballistic missile today without warning the Americans, for example.
      Yes, and how can I get through ... launch? (I’m not saying that it’s impossible) sin is the price of all missile defense

    Something I strongly doubt the sincerity of amers. Draw up contracts only in their own interests. They need all kinds of monitoring and control of our nuclear weapons. We need an eye and an eye.
    A global redivision of the world is coming, and we are a stumbling block.

    Strange article title. In fact, the United States and the Russian Federation have been exchanging such information for a long time. I can assure you that the United States has always clearly observed this point. All educational launches are notified - whether it is the sea or land. They often shoot and, in the vast majority of cases, from the Western Missile Range (Vandenberg).

    If you don’t exchange information, who knows what will lead to a banal test of a rocket to check its performance characteristics? It’s necessary, the world is more expensive. Moreover, it’s not so difficult to control the launch with modern detection tools and satellites.

    START-3 is a losing treaty for Russia. Data exchange is just an empty formality!
