The US called the reason for criticizing Trump's decision to withdraw from the Open Skies treaty

35

It turns out that in the United States far from unanimous approval was adopted the decision of the administration of President Donald Trump to withdraw from the Open Skies agreement. Recall that in the format of this agreement, Russian and NATO military experts had the right to carry out air monitoring of objects in the territories of countries that signed the agreement in 1992.


The beginning of the contract - 2002. Over 18 years, numerous monitoring flights of NATO aircraft over Russia and Russian aircraft over NATO countries have been completed. During the monitoring, the compliance parameters for the deployment of forces and assets relative to previously signed agreements were established. But Trump decided to withdraw from the Open Skies treaty, habitually accusing Russia of its violations.

Allegedly, Moscow does not provide opportunities for air monitoring of objects in the Kaliningrad region. Moscow denies the accusations against it, but for the United States this is no longer an argument.

Representatives of the Democratic Party also criticized Trump's withdrawal from the Open Skies treaty. Against the background of the election campaign, this is understandable. But what is the specific reason for criticizing Trump’s decision in the US?

The fact is that the United States withdrew from the treaty, but their European partners in NATO did not withdraw. In this regard, it is said that Russia has every opportunity to continue monitoring from the air the military facilities of the countries of the North Atlantic Alliance in Europe. And if you take into account that dozens of American bases are located on European territory, many of which share the area with the bases of European armies, then the Russian military will be able to continue monitoring the locations of the American military.

In the US Democratic Party, noting that American inspectors would lose their right to conduct observation flights over the Russian Federation, Trump’s decision in connection with this situation was called "abuse of the interests of the US military stationed on the European continent."

    Who would doubt that. There is Trump and there is Antitramp, and logic is resting.

      Everything went to pieces ... if we go out, a new round of bullying Russia will begin as a threat to the whole world. And again, sanctions, the same as for START, are strangling us seriously.

          Not necessary. But suspend flights, which is tantamount to a temporary withdrawal from the contract. And there will be no reason to stink.

            Не понятна реакция "общественности". Зачем нам выходить из договора если с выходом из ДОН США он и так рухнул? Именно поэтому и сожалеют "европы" в исторической памяти которых, в отличии от США, ещё остались бедствия многих войн. Им или не позволят летать над РФ вообще, или ограничат полет, например, пограничными районами на взаимной основе.
            And so all the responsibility on the Americans. This, of course, is a purely propaganda affair, but still ...

        and what did the USA actually lose?

        And NOTHING, for the Angles, etc. NATOshval will continue to fly and shoot in Russia what the United States orders.
        And who said that there will be no amers on those NATO planes?

        That is, the USA of Russia will not be able to control, and the USA will continue

        So, I think, Russia will have to go out too or reduce the flights of NATO countries much.

          Only if they are citizens and military personnel of the country that requests such a flight ... These planes undergo preliminary control, when arriving at the territory intended for inspection, the crew members pass the same control, and there are also military representatives on board audited country.

        So the Americans come out, not us, so it doesn’t depend on us at all. In general, this agreement is not beneficial to us in any way, and it is good that the Americans themselves are tearing it up - there will be fewer complaints to us. As for sanctions, this is a long-term program of the West, and there is nothing to do with breaking the agreement.

        Yeah, the Yankees came out, and should we continue to live with the gates open? request There is more sanction, less sanction, it doesn’t matter anymore. Have you been strangled by these sanctions?

        И плюсов в этом для нас даже больше, чем минусов. Во-первых, и ёжику понятно, что после издыхания ДРСМД матрац будет создавать и испытывать новые ракеты - незачем горючку жечь, чтобы это лишний раз увидеть. Во-вторых - да, над Европой летать мы ещё можем (но всё равно, засечь замену в Aegis-Ashore) ПРО-ракет на Томагавки - задача контрразведки, тут шамолётик с фотокамерами мало чем поможет), в-третьих - успешно скрываем свои объекты (а после издыхания ДРСМД и у нас новинок хватит). К тому же с нашей необъятной территорией. Траектории американских спутников-шпионов давно просчитаны, и что-либо серьёзное всегда делается в "слепых окнах" между их пролётами.

    And at the same time, the little question is, we are no longer flying over the states themselves and China doesn’t seem to fly, but they can fly in the framework of NATO and have to share the info. In principle, it is clear what they want, but playing in the nuances and especially how they would be a shit would be entertaining, but we put up with the role and therefore can do little and (union) China the ambitions of our imbeciles are flat parallel.

      Do not judge others by yourself. How do you know what we can and cannot do? Do you work in this area?
      In my opinion, information on the state of American troops in Europe is more important for Russia than in America itself. Russia retains the opportunity to update such information.

    In such circumstances, Russia should completely close its sky from outsiders. Since the United States and Russia, and with a big stretch, China is a promising theater. Europe, as always, is only a lamb in the slaughter.

                Equipment can provide. As for the range, under the contract it is possible to submit an application for flying around certain objects in any area, regardless of how far they are from the inspecting country. The main thing is to give permission to fly around them. Inspectors work from airfields closest to the inspected area, having previously flown there. hi

    The fact is that the United States withdrew from the treaty, but their European partners in NATO did not withdraw.
    yes that's just the joke - now we don’t fly in the American sky and they seem to be de jure too, but we fly in the European sky and Europeans, respectively, in ours. Information collected by Europeans automatically goes to the USA. Bottom line - we are losing control of the Americans, and the Americans over our facilities retain. So think about whether in such a situation we cling to the rest of the contract in its European segment or also completely denounce the contract .. Although it’s probably worth it, since data on European countries are more important to us

    This treaty is not relevant, as in the case of nuclear weapons. China remains aloof from all the treaties on restrictions. They are quietly building up nuclear weapons and medium-range missiles. It is time for them to participate in all such treaties. Only the US alone is trying to attract them, and our sun-like one is only adjoining before narrow-eyed.
