Washington has not yet decided whether to extend the Treaty on measures to further reduce and limit strategic offensive arms (START) after 2021, but for the time being they intend to implement it, reports RIA News Statement by Deputy Assistant Head of the Pentagon on Nuclear Policy Robert Sufer.




We say in the (nuclear) doctrine that we will follow the treaty. But we have not yet made a decision (on renewal)
said Sufer to the agency, answering the question whether the United States intends to extend the specified contract for another 5 years.

The START Treaty entered into force in February 2011. According to the document, starting from 2018, the total numbers of weapons on each side "did not exceed 700 intercontinental ballistic missiles, ballistic missiles on submarines and heavy bombers, as well as 1550 warheads and 800 deployed and non-deployed launchers."

The United States claims to have fulfilled its obligations back in August 2017. In Moscow, it was reported that Russia could not confirm that the United States had fully brought its strategic armaments in line with the START Treaty.

    The year 2021 will suit and the first to propose the extension of the START treaty will be mattress covers, but now they simply pose as immortals.

      I think that, based on their doctrine, they will not extend the contract. Moreover, until 2021 they will actively blame Russia and look for virtual reasons for their refusal. And the Americans succeeded in public lies.

        Their doctrine remains unchanged - preemptive strikes! And they will do everything possible to gain an advantage over the Russian Federation ...
        The "Perimeter" is a guarantee of our safety, but so far the US brains have not completely deteriorated!

        They were initially used to dialogue with everyone with Colt at the temple of the opponent and they’re only afraid of the same colt at their temple. In general, sometimes one wonders what the level of American politics is now. It looks like the states are turning into a monkey with a grenade from which you can expect anything
        As I wrote on February 9 this year Hill’s American political daily, citing sources, Donald Trump criticized START III during a telephone conversation with Vladimir Putin. The publication reports that Putin asked Trump if he intends to extend this agreement. Trump interrupted for a while to clarify with his assistants what kind of contract this was. Trump then returned to the conversation and stated that START III was a bad treaty concluded by the Obama administration. According to Trump, this agreement was more beneficial to the Russian Federation than the United States. Although in reality it is worse for Russia than for America.

        Fuck ... the US president does not even have a clue about the existence of this treaty.

      These "immortals" are ready to break the INF Treaty as soon as it is profitable for them! They will break any agreement if it interferes with them or lose the possibility of manipulating it ...
      They are beyond the puddle, and our enemies everywhere are their advantage!

      And which one washed away the Americans' head strain. At least extend, at least shorten, for them it does not matter. winked

      ... will they extend the Treaty on Measures to Further Reduce and Limit Strategic Offensive Arms (START) after 2021 ...

      They are trying to bluff geldings as "exceptional" cheaters, to take on weakly.

    But their affairs are bad ... and they understand this ... What is typical for them ... like cards ... they have one trifle in their hands ... but they try to keep their faces ... It’s clear that if they started in negotiations push, then they’re doing bad ... before they didn’t give a damn about anything ... but now you’re naughty ... They will bargain ...

      an arms race is the first sign that everything is bad in the US economy. Try to prolong the agony.

    They will necessarily extend, since it is beneficial for them. They will simply get nervous on the nerves with contradictory statements up to the extension period in order to bargain even more of our concessions. We must not keep up, do not agree to a further reduction, update the existing one and constantly poke our nose at the Americans in their attempts to circumvent the treaty.

    by 2021, the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation will adopt such systems that the whole world will simply applaud while standing and spit in the United States because their tyranny from which more than a hundred billion innocent people died will be brought to its knees .... we are talking about super secret developments since the USSR and this is not rockets or tanks!

    The Americans are preparing the ground for withdrawal from the INF Treaty, this is clearly seen from their new nuclear strategy of selective strikes and the introduction of low-precision high-precision nuclear weapons, respectively, to accomplish the tasks of this strategy, a ground-based component of strike means will be needed in addition to sea and air. And for this we need medium-range and short-range ballistic missile and ballistic missiles, which can be placed on a European theater of operations almost at our borders with a short flying time to deliver a high-precision disarmament strike against strategic targets using low-power nuclear weapons. us useless and harmful.

    Extended. They just have no way out now. None of the weapons systems that are supposed to replace the existing ones are ready. Renounce the treaty Russia will be able to increase its potential, while America will not. Therefore, it is definitely extended

    Well, they did not break the ABM treaty, but left it completely officially. But that's why ours didn’t do the same, announcing the release of their ABM treaty - a mystery

    Yeah. I did not read the contract, but it is bad (because it is signed by the predecessor). It resembles a Christian example from the history of our literature, when one comrade was asked if he had read Pasternak’s book “Doctor Zhevago.” To which he replied - "I have not read the book, but I know that it is anti-Soviet."
    So it is here. I have not read the contract, but I know that it is bad

    Kamrad! I would agree with you that the Americans are guaranteed to quit the INF Treaty if not for one but. They can come out, and it would not be beneficial for us, but the question is different, but what will they put on these missiles? Here is the question-questions. Their weapons and nuclear complex is now in such a dramatic new condition that you wonder how the Americans came to this. Although it is clear that this is the result of their super-high conceit. And the collapse of the Union led to euphoria. And as a result, they are now corny they cannot create new warheads. They can upgrade and dismantle. To create serial new ones - only around 2030. So what will they put on medium-range missiles? The choice is extremely limited, and even the old ones require either modernization or change. And this is not even money. it TIME
    Even now, they have two cruise missiles in plan. One is air-based - LRSO, the other - marine. And if for the air they have a certain supply of warheads that are in operational storage, but nevertheless require modernization under the LEP W-80-4 program (the possible modernization period is 2025-2032, then for the sea warhead there is no required capacity. What will they make the US Navy? Take away warheads from the Air Force? And then there’s medium-range ballistic missiles. In addition, the only plant that does modernization and dismantling is not rubber. It cannot upgrade more than 3 hundred a year. quantity
