The Pentagon called the condition of refusal of cruise missiles with nuclear warheads

58
The United States will give up plans to deploy sea-based cruise missiles with low-power nuclear charges if Russia abides by the INF Treaty, reports RIA News Statement by Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Nuclear and Missile Defense Policy Robert Sufer.




We say in the doctrine that if Russia begins to again comply with the INF, it will begin to negotiate reductions in tactical nuclear weaponsif they change their aggressive geopolitical behavior in the international arena, then we can talk about a sea-based cruise missile, we will not need to deploy it,
said Sufer at the nuclear deterrence summit.

He also expressed concern that Russia, he said, is building up stocks of non-strategic nuclear weapons.

We looked at the Russian strategy, the Russian doctrine, the teachings ... and we need to do something to respond to this, we had no choice
Pentagon spokesman added.

Earlier, the Pentagon promulgated a nuclear doctrine, according to which Washington will focus on the development of low-power nuclear warheads. In addition, the United States will continue to modernize nuclear forces and develop elements of the “nuclear triad”. As stated in the military, the United States "does not intend to lower the threshold for the use of nuclear weapons," and the main goal remains to deter "both nuclear and non-nuclear strategic attacks."

      It is necessary to withdraw from the agreement on the INF Treaty - it is not relevant. Let Europeans feel on their own skin, otherwise they will completely lose their fear after perestroika and the collapse of the union.

      And nowhere else to increase. But minimizing weight and volume while maintaining power is another matter. Although here they have already reached the limit - the nuclear warhead of a cruise missile, that we have, that they have - 200kt. Enough to burn an average city. The answer here can only be the inevitability of retaliation in full.

    It’s time to already state that in connection with violations by the United States of previously concluded treaties between the United States and Russia, as well as the imposition of sanctions against Russia, Russia will review all previously concluded treaties with the United States in all areas and in the event of non-compliance by the United States or a hint to violate them, Russia will withdraw from these treaties and also withdraw from treaties if they contradict the interests or defense of Russia. Here you are howling but ... by the way, and with Europe also do.

And what we have already done, we do not trade. That is, the fact that they themselves are already violating this agreement - they do not consider, but urge us to comply.

    I completely agree with you. Now it’s really scary. Not only is it unknown how many W-80 warheads are currently in operational storage. So in order to be delivered to this cruise missile, it must undergo modernization under the W-80-4 LEP program. Work on this program with the Americans will begin no earlier than 2025 and will last until 2032. And they are now "setting requirements." Let it go. And what for us to increase the number of tactical nuclear charges when we have enough of them already. at least several times superior to the reserves of the American tactical

    The issue with reductions of TNW was raised even at the conclusion of START-3. The US Senate ratified this treaty on the condition that Obama will prepare an agreement on reducing tactical nuclear weapons within a year. It is clear, however, that it is not beneficial for the Russian Federation in the form that they want to impose it on us. Our government does not consider it.
    Recently tried to impose a treaty on the universal prohibition of nuclear weapons. It is also not profitable for us and it is not considered by our country.
    The approach proposed now means let's reduce: RF is real iron, and partners are paper sketches ...
    It is also clear that the answer from our side will be - no. It is simply necessary for them to propagate, ostensibly, our aggressiveness.
    But really shtatovtsam not profitable to do it. The government has little dough for full-scale development and production, and firms really want to get this bunch of easy money ...

    RUSSIA has no worse enemy than WE ourselves, it is we from 1/6 of the world that turned into 1/8 and returned to kapstroy. The USSR’s nuclear shield still remained true and updated, from here the conclusion is that Russia should put the conditions in the flesh to Khrushchev’s shoe; and do it loudly, and not under my breath, while there is an opportunity.

    In general, the expression
    The United States will abandon plans to deploy sea-based cruise missiles with low-power nuclear charges if Russia abides by the INF Treaty,
    Translated from American to normal, it sounds something like this
