Military Review

In the US Senate, they called for talks with Russia after Putin’s words on new weapons.

A group of senators appealed to US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson with an appeal to start a dialogue with Moscow after statements by Russian President Vladimir Putin about a new weapons.


In the US Senate, they called for talks with Russia after Putin’s words on new weapons.


The strategic dialogue between the US and Russia became more relevant after a public speech by President (Vladimir) Putin on 1 March, when he mentioned several new types of nuclear weapons that Russia is reportedly developing, including a cruise missile and a nuclear underwater drone. Now they are not limited to the START-3 agreement and destabilize (the situation) if they are deployed
- says the letter, which was signed by the Democrats Jeff Merkley, Dianne Faynstin, Edward Markey and independent Senator Bernie Sanders.

None of the authors heads any committee of the Senate; they are also not supported by the Republican-controlling republicans.

The senators' statement also notes that the new types of weapons presented by Putin, in particular, a cruise missile and a nuclear underwater drone, are not subject to the START-3 treaty, so the United States must begin negotiations with Russia to update this agreement.

As the authors of the appeal explain, in the event of an extension of the treaty, it will be possible to verify how Russia complies with nuclear weapons limits and reduces arsenals.

The dialogue with Russia, in the senators' opinion, should allow settling disagreements around the treaty on the elimination of medium and shorter-range missiles (INF).

The new START Treaty entered into force in 2011 year. It remains in effect for 10 years - until the 2021 year, unless it is replaced before this date by a subsequent agreement on the reduction and limitation of strategic offensive arms. It can also be extended by no more than five years (that is, until 2026 of the year) by mutual agreement of the parties.

      They had not really come down to negotiations to see their knees trembling with fear, but what about their "exclusivity". The naive will now want to drive Russia back into some sort of treaty on limiting this weapon. There should not be any agreements with the USA because they do not comply with them.

          To begin with, money exported to the United States. Then, the restriction is on their flow. Remove all missile defense systems located outside the USA. Well, let NATO rake in the borders of 1990. For starters, 80% of their entire infrastructure on the coasts. .Let the nuclear torpedoes try to catch laughing

    For effective negotiations with Russia, they need to adequately treat the situation in the world. And this is a big loss for their "democracy." In some situations, contracts are not executed, from others they are unilaterally withdrawn.
    And it’s not clear whether they will be listened to in the Senate?

          Well, with this opponent-boor (Smoke) there is nothing to talk about, but you should know that over the past century and a half there have never been military operations on the territory of the states. It is possible to cite the heroism of individual sergeant soldiers in Iraq or elsewhere, but no one can speak of patriotism, "... when they attack America they love ...".

Urkaina is fighting with her shadow and there are no our troops there, which Muzhenko himself said. Georgia received face to face for the execution of Russian peacekeepers in South Ossetia. Moldova and Transnistria gained peace thanks to the efforts of the Russian army, whose presence is still the guarantor of peace.

    do not fall under START-3, therefore, the US needs to start negotiations with Russia to update this agreement
    The cunning ones decided that if it was still not possible to create such weapons themselves, then it was necessary to persuade Russia to sign a new agreement, which, according to their idea, should prohibit the use of such weapons. That's just the train left and today Russia is not under Gorbachev or EBNom.

    Ek cartoons stuck a "group of senators"! Not that some of the local truth-seekers. However: "None of the authors heads any Senate committee; they were also not supported by Republicans controlling the chamber." So this "group" is either bought at the root of the Kremlin, or hacked by the Kremlin’s hackers and does not matter.

    What is the difference between the policy (towards Russia) of Republicans and Democrats in the US Senate from each other? - but nothing! And then 4 representatives out of 100 in the Senate spoke in favor of negotiations with the Russians, whom they consider to be a universal evil in American politics.
    That's just funny.

    Coconuts respect only power (the law jungle), therefore negotiations only because of the Soviet Union (and the degradation of the United States and its population is noticeable even to the Papuans, except for empty money and bases around the world (for self-assertion as a teenager) they have nothing sensible).

    The "gentlemen" only start talking about negotiations when they start to lose - they turn on the naive regime, offering us to give up weapons against which they have no antidote, in return promising only pats on the shoulder with some mitigation of rhetoric. I hope that ashes will not go to unequal exchanges in favor of the American "partners", who openly declare that Russia is their enemy, and the Americans themselves will not go to equivalent (curtailing their military bases, including missile defense bases around Russia's borders, for example).

    The senators' statement also notes that the new types of weapons presented by Putin, in particular, a cruise missile and a nuclear underwater drone, are not subject to the START-3 treaty, so the United States must begin negotiations with Russia to update this agreement.

    The Americans were going to upgrade START-3 and include new types of weapons in it ?! !! wassat
    Now there are no fools, now Russia will twist your hands !!! yes soldier

    This is the voice of those crying in the wilderness! They don’t vote there, not in that place! In that place, everything with pots on the head! And the whole world is forced to follow their example!

    “They let the hedgehog in the pants for the Americans!” - as N.S. Khrushchev. So they immediately started talking about the negotiations!

    The Saxons again want to tie our hands. Lies on their part have become just the norm. After the GDR was included in the FRG, they deceived NATO about non-expansion, in Libya they deceived, in Ukraine they deceived, ABM ... the list is endless. It is necessary to delay the negotiation process, as they are with the Minsk agreements. It’s necessary to put an unacceptable list for them and let them scream! They impose sanctions on Russia (which may or may not cancel) for Crimea, Donbass, and Syria ... Let there be an UNACCEPTABLE list of requirements for them! Or everything, or let them go.
    Time is on our side - and their collapse is coming! We are sitting in a trench.

    The US Senate called for negotiations with the Russian Federation


    The United States is pragmatic and until they sort through all the options for an answer, they won’t take up negotiations. The news is positive because it says that they have nothing to counteract with the new Russian weapons.
    Particularly ridiculous is their recent attempt to threaten Russia with submarines.

    A “group of senators” is as many as 4 out of 100. Four were led to bluff, or pretended to be led.
