Russian ambassador blamed US for undermining strategic stability

11
The US withdrawal from the ABM Treaty reflected a unilateral approach and undermined strategic stability. RIA News Statement by the Ambassador of the Russian Federation Anatoly Antonov at a meeting with students at Middlebury University during a visit to California.




I consider the fundamental political mistake of the US to withdraw from the Anti-Ballistic Missile (ABM) Treaty in 2002. I am sure that this decision of the USA was not conditioned by the search for a response to real threats, was not an adequate response to them and did not solve the tasks set. It was a political decision that reflected a unilateral approach that undermined strategic stability,
said Antonov.

Recall 16 years ago, the United States announced its unilateral withdrawal from the Anti-Ballistic Missile (ABM) Treaty, signed by Moscow and Washington in the 1972 year.

Antonov arrived in California on Wednesday, where from November 29 to December 3 will hold a series of business meetings. The program of the trip includes “meetings with compatriots, experts and business circles, performances at universities, an inspection of Russian diplomatic property in San Francisco, a visit to Fort Ross,” the Russian embassy said.

      These are just our problems. and very large. Especially considering the shock potential of the system. For this, in the end, it was created. And we simply have nothing to answer symmetrically. Neither in technical terms, nor because of geography. If it weren’t, our topic would not be too busy.

    How many times have they "blamed" the United States for various reasons, but "Vaska listens, but eats." It is time to come to terms with this and not leave without consequences the actions on our part. The Americans came out - that means they also untied our hands. Moreover, 15 years have passed already.

      Just now, less than 16 years have passed, and at least someone has blamed the United States (he wonders if he won’t be for this?)

    Actually, did you expect more from Antonov, or did it coincide that the grossest assaults on the Russian embassy in the USA took place precisely under him? In any case, Russia’s interests must be defended more firmly!
