WP: Washington has long been ready to withdraw from START-3

Washington has long been ready to completely withdraw from the Russian-American Treaty on Measures to Further Reduce and Limit Strategic Offensive Arms (START, START-3), but so far continues to consider all possible options for its extension. It is reported by The Washington Post, citing its sources in the US administration.

The publication cites the words of one of the White House administration officials, who, answering the question whether the United States is really ready to refuse to renew the START Treaty and withdraw from the treaty, confirmed this.

We are absolutely ready to leave. But I would soften it by saying that in fact all options are considered

- he said.

Note that if Russia and the United States do not agree to extend the START (START-3), it will expire in February next year.

Recall that on June 22, Vienna will host negotiations between the Russian and American sides on nuclear disarmament. It is assumed that they will discuss the issue of extending the START-3 treaty. As stated by the special envoy of the President of the United States for arms control Marshall Billingsley, China was also invited to the negotiations.

In turn, Beijing officially notified Washington that it did not intend to participate in any negotiations on nuclear disarmament.

Earlier it was reported that the United States put one of the conditions for the extension of the contract, the participation in it also of China.

    With high probability they will withdraw from the treaty and blame Russia for everything. As has been done already with the INF Treaty.

      The American capitalists with their puppets in NATO surrounded Russia with a ring of enemies, it is necessary to rally the whole country around the EP party and the government to repel the threat of an attack on the young capitalist republic. Tighten our belts, grit our teeth and raise taxes to combat the Western capitalist threat to our sovereign capitalism.

          If they want to go out so badly, then let them explain why we need it. laughing
          Seriously, something is very deliberately crushing. Hope to scare?

        The USA has no way out - China is gaining strength, and the strategic nuclear resources limited by the treaty do not allow two nuclear powers to confront at the same time, and this is breaking the treaty.
        China has already announced that it intends to bring the number of warheads on ICBMs to 1000 units ... or maybe the number of ICBMs ... The economy allows.
        And where does the poor cowboy go?
        Only tear the agreement and bring the strategic nuclear forces potential to an acceptable level ...
        Poor poor hegemon. With his problems then in a new race ...

          I don't like China at all. It would not be, as in the old Soviet cartoon about a warrior who became a dragon.

            China is more dangerous for the future. Much more dangerous. The USA is an outgoing nature, it is blown away very rapidly, but as a sparing partner for China it is very good. Let it withdraw from the treaties; they, too, are already bothering us.

      Washington is not particularly ceremonial with international treaties .. he does not conclude them in order to restrain himself .. but the opposite side. if a treaty begins to burden the United States, then they will leave it without hesitation

      Так на ВО "эксперты" давно утверждают,что СНВ-3 для России не нужен и ,даже, ВРЕДЕН!

    Считаю, что продлят СНВ3. США не выгодно уходить. Тогда Россия "уйдет" так далеко, что США уже не догонят.

    We need to negotiate in Vienna for a look, but in reality, put the device on both the contract and the USA, which entered at the peak of the American Spring.

    Помнится в двухтысячных, когда америка все только начинала(с наземными установками, испытаниями ракет и т.п.) "перестраховщики" спорили с оппонентами по поводу - к чему это может привести(и приведет, зная америку).
    Years have passed ...

    As they say unpleasantly BUT is not fatal
    США всегда были недоговороспособным государством ... выходы из любых договоров и договорённостей это просто уже обыденность ... ну вот очередная готов носить к выходу из очередного договора ... ну вот уже не ново и не интересно ... освоят деньги ... смениться ряд администраций ... и возможно очередной виток "разрядки" начнётся ... иииии??? ... а к чему мы собственно не готовы??? ... что для наших ВС и ВМФ измениться??? ... да по сути НИ ЧЕ ГО ...

    June 22, Vienna will host negotiations between the Russian and American sides on nuclear disarmament
    This is not negotiation, but the legal registration of a divorce.

      The date is picked up somehow unsuccessfully. June 22.

    The United States put China as one of the conditions for extending the contract
    Then why don’t we set our terms for the participation of Britain and France with nuclear weapons in the treaty? Or are we afraid to break what the USA is already breaking? Americans freely, when they want to withdraw from previously concluded treaties, displaying their demands up to Russia's refusal to engage in armaments and put on hypersonic weapons, while we persuade with painful insistence and appeal to reason. Whom? Those who are guilty of all world sins by the Americans and their devils are designated and defined specifically - Russia, China and Iran on the side.

    А я понимаю американцев. По их заявлениям у них два основных противника Россия и Китай. С Россией есть договор, и как следствие известно количество ядерных боеприпасов и осуществляется его контроль. С Китаем такого договора нет ни у США ни у нас. Количество ядерного вооружения у Китая не известно и может увеличиваться без контрольно, на фоне договора между США и Россией. Исходя из этой угрозы для США, они и выходят из договора с Россией, что бы их ядерный потенциал соответствовал обоим противникам. Этот разрыв договора полезен и нам. Пинаем США как агрессора, появляются новые возможности по новому договору включающие иные ядерные страны, и так же увеличить свой арсенал против Китая. Эти "братья на век" еще те штучки. Острова на Амуре оттяпали, безконтрольные ТОРы на Дальнем Востоке по дешевке, нефть и газ почти даром, Крым не признали и т.д. и т.п. Так что скоро снова Григорию Победоносцу с драконом биться.

    It has long been understood, the only question is how will they make the Russians guilty?
