Is it a mistake to extend START-3?

172

Source: mil.ru


I don’t remember, but one of the greats said:

"It's worse than a crime — it's a mistake."

So with the START-3 treaty, which suddenly, literally a few weeks before its end, the United States suddenly expressed a desire to extend it, it may so happen that it will be a mistake, which is worse than a crime.

The world has changed


What is the contract about?

It is about reducing the strategic offensive arms of Russia and the United States.

It seems to be a good thing. But here's the thing - the time and situation in the world have changed since 2009, when this agreement was signed.

Then, at the time of signing, the treaty on the limitation of medium and short-range missiles was still in force. And now it doesn't work.

Pershing in Britain


That is, it turns out that the United States may well deploy its IRBMs on the territory of its allies (like Britain)?

And Russia simply does not have such an opportunity for well-known reasons.

But the same Pershing in Britain - in relation to Russia, the most real strategic offensive weapons.

Actually, the position becomes an exact copy of the eighties. When the Union and the United States tried to agree on the first START. The Americans then refused to consider their medium-range missiles strategic. And ours insisted that they are the most strategic ones.

This means one.

And what about hundreds of European warheads?


And here are two.

France and Britain's own arsenals are again outside the scope of this treaty.

But when the Union and the United States each had 36 warheads, the presence of a few hundred more in these countries really did little to impact.

Now it is a completely different matter.

European countries have hundreds of speakers.

And they are not included in the agreement again?

Haste Bonus


Three is about the deal.

If the Americans really want to extend the treaty, then let them offer at least something for it. It always happens in any negotiations?

But I didn’t hear that the United States offered anything to Russia for this haste.

I don’t want to think that in such a hasty manner such and such an aspect can be raised in this pushed agreement. But I think it's worth mentioning this.

Lobbyist officials


In addition, there are four.

We must not forget that working as a treaty inspector in the United States is a rather pleasant and highly paid position.

Therefore, there is a considerable layer of military officials who are vitally interested in its extension.

I believe that this aspect should also be carefully studied.

Conclusion


Thus, the extension of the START-3 treaty in modern conditions is unprofitable for Russia.

First of all, due to the fact that the balance of power in the world has changed a lot since its signing in 2009.

In general, the situation today looks quite ambiguous. And it requires, at least, the elimination of haste.

Especially when making such a serious decision for Russia.

          Objectively, everything is so. If the rallies of the dissatisfied are dispersed harshly, this will split society even more. If you go under the sanctions, the standard of living will fall even more. This means that the rallies will be even fiercer and more numerous. Therefore, the "Brest Peace" and try to win the internal political gambit. If, of course, older players have enough skill and skill.

            It is precisely for the non-extension of strategic offensive arms that no sanctions can be imposed, even theoretically. Renewing it is an opportunity, not an obligation. Completion upon expiration is a normal development of the situation, provided in its very text, and not a violation of anything.

                      Examples to fig and more.
                      Russia is not a self-sufficient country in any way and is vulnerable.
                      So far, the sanctions are only at the very beginning, targeted.
                      This is due to the fact that Russia is not an enemy of the United States at all, a pro-Western clique is in power, even on this site there was news that Chubais would be the representative for international affairs.

                        Do you continue to argue that the sanctions will affect the living standards of Russian citizens? If so, how?
                        As you can see, I am not asking for much. Just a little specifics instead of a lot of general phrases.

            I am determined - the feed has growth hormones, antibiotics are also added to the feed to avoid mortality
            Therefore, the effectiveness of antibiotics for a disease in humans decreases, any competent physician will confirm this to you, growth hormones lead to an increase in overweight in the population

            Food prices are only marginally dependent on sanctions.

            Not this way. For example, imported cheeses are mostly in a more expensive segment than domestic ones. Due to what there was a rise in price.
            I believe that the rise in prices was due to the lack of control of the business.

    The sanctions are targeted, the population is hardly affected.
    Counter-sanctions are much more tangible - the cost of the food rises.

    Zhrachka rises in price from an increase in VAT, gasoline prices, an increase in excise duties and taxes, the introduction of mandatory labeling and chipping of products, the introduction of recycling fees, etc., which is compensated by manufacturers and retail chains at the expense of buyers, that is, by an increase in prices. So the rise in prices is largely a response to the government's actions. The government and the banking sector are jealous of the fact that the "irresponsible" population has under the mattress (not an American) a rainy day stash that remains inaccessible to voracious bankers, and are taking steps to help the population get rid of "excess" cash , in order to put everyone without exception on loans and mortgages and get an almost inexhaustible source of interest and finance to fill the budget and the banking sector. After sterilization (seizure) of the money supply, the Central Bank and the state will relieve themselves of the need to spend a bunch of babos on minting coins and making banknotes, and the population will be forcibly driven into the era of non-cash and plastic, where every ruble earned and spent will be tracked by the fiscal service. This will obviously return mankind to the formula of tacit barter settlements and natural exchange, if these operations are not brought under the article of the law for illegal circulation outside state control. The GULAG was not under Stalin, it will be ahead and is approaching along with digitalization.

    No, this is not how you interpret the meaning of the upcoming "GULAG", which I had in mind. It will not have physical perimeters of the fence, which is observed in the zone, but has the ultimate goal of establishing total control over the population, over its incomes, expenses, movements, hobbies and personal contacts. This prospect, somehow, does not inspire much and will soon be just right to envy Agafya Lykova, who is probably the only one who will remain outside the sovereign's eye. This awaits not only Russia and will be implemented everywhere, with the only difference that somewhere is faster, and somewhere slower

For a believer, this is God, who, as every believer believes, sees not only his income and expenses, but also his thoughts and feelings. Think about it, this is a much more "transparent" existence. And the fear of God arises from feelings, thoughts and desires that are contrary to his faith. But try to take this faith away from him. Atheists in Germany foster openness by the absence of curtains on the windows in many houses and apartments. It surprised me, but they do it without coercion, because they feel their closeness as a problem of alienation and try to overcome it in this way. Sorry, this is too subjective to evoke an association with the Gulag, because alienation is like solitary confinement.

    Faith and power are slightly different concepts, but power seeks to equate itself with God, and therefore more and more often it turns out that not power is the servant of the people, but the people are the servant of power, despite the fact that it is universally declared that the source of power is the people.

    The fact of the matter is that right now alienation is being cultivated. People, having buried themselves in gadgets and plunged into the Internet, stop communicating live, and virtual communication breaks at the click of the fingers of power. Even presidents are no exception. Trump was disconnected from Twitter for two times, not giving a damn about the fact that more than 70 million people were subscribed to him. Gradually, the "big brother" will teach everyone to walk in one formation and breathe "correctly." Those who are born in the new conditions will take it for granted, and those who remember how it was before will eventually die out. hi

When Europe disappeared from problems with the Russian government, the daily wage was slightly more than a dollar. And the ruble often fell in price per day more than during the entire period of sanctions from 2014 to 2021. Even the daughter of diplomat M. Zakharov sometimes recalls at briefings very emotionally and sincerely her hungry and impoverished youth during the times of Yeltsin and Gaidar. And if businessmen-alarmists would not rush to buy up euros at each price increase, then the rate would be 20 percent lower than now.

    So, when you climb under the sanctions pursuing your independent policy, the falling standard of living leads to violent and numerous rallies.

      Firstly, I would like to remind you that the current legislation of the Russian Federation prohibits publicly committed acts aimed at inciting hatred or enmity, as well as humiliating the dignity of a person or a group of persons based on gender, race, nationality, language, origin, attitude to religion, as well as belonging to any social group.
      Insulting fellow citizens who share liberal and social democratic convictions, in my opinion, is not permissible and contradicts the letter and spirit of the foundations of the constitutional system of the Russian Federation.

      PS: Also, I want to draw your attention to the following provisions of the Constitution of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics of 1977
      Quote: "Article 2. All power in the USSR belongs to the people. The people exercise state power through the Soviets of People's Deputies, which constitute the political basis of the USSR."
      Quote: "Article 3. The organization and activities of the Soviet state are built in accordance with the principle of democratic centralism: the election of all government bodies from top to bottom, accountability to their people."
      According to the 1977 USSR Constitution, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics was a state with a democratic form of government, in which the state ensured the protection of the rights and freedoms of citizens (Article 4, Chapter 7 of the 1977 USSR Constitution).

      The meaning of contracts with characters whose words are worthless?

      Now the question is - when exactly did the United States violate the agreements concluded with the Soviet Union and the Russian Federation?
      PS: We do not count the mythical, non-existent commitments about "NATO's non-expansion". Such provisions were not clothed in the form of an agreement binding on the parties to the agreement, nothing but wishful thinking about the alleged "obligations" of such a plan are not. From the point of view of international law, such obligations have never existed and never existed. Point.
      You should also make a second reservation - there is a fundamental difference between "violate the agreement" and "in the prescribed manner to withdraw from this or that agreement"

          More precisely, it is clear why such a confrontation took place during the Soviet Union. Its necessity stemmed from the very essence of the dominant in the USSR Marxist-Leninist ideology, which proclaimed a course for the transition from capitalism to building communism by methods of creating a totally state-controlled command-planned economy.

        - USA - Repeated violations and deviations from the requirements of the START Treaty and the Annex on Inspection Activities during inspections at US START facilities.
        - own identification marks of the Trident-2 SLBM, which were kept assembled, turned out to be inaccessible for observation, since the number was applied inside the first stage. The numbers of the first stages of the missiles, which were kept undocked, did not match the numbers provided by the Americans in the notifications.
        - the numbers of the ICBM were written on a sheet of paper that the Americans pasted onto the cover of the rocket engine nozzle.
        AMERICANS IN THEIR MIND ????
        - identification marks of ICBMs were applied to a tag suspended on a fence; it is unknown whether the number of the missile deployed in the mine corresponded to the duplicate on the tag.
        .
        !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!WHAT IT IS ?????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!! EVEN IF - HAHA - REMOVE OTHER VIOLATIONS - THIS IS AN EXECUTION OF CONTRACTS ?? THE NUMBER IS NOT VISIBLE HERE, THE A4 LEAF HERE WAS STICKED -

          Here, already some specifics. It's good.
          Let's go point by point
          USA - transferred to Norway radar Globus-2

          But this radar station belongs to ... the Armed Forces of Norway and is controlled by them. Norway was not a party to the ABM Treaty. From the word "absolutely".
          USA - development of medium and shorter-range target missiles in order to test elements of the US global missile defense and European missile defense.

          The Intermediate-Range and Shorter-Range Missiles Treaty only prohibited the production and deployment of ballistic missiles, which are a means of delivering weapons (Article II, subparagraph 1). A target missile is not such a means.
          in fact, on the basis of the Minuteman upper stages, a medium-range missile was created

          Was not. Target missiles are not weapons delivery vehicles.
          USA - sells Trident-8 SLBMs to the British strategic nuclear forces, which was not declared at the time of signing the START Treaty (April 2010, 2)

          Is such activity really prohibited by the START-3 treaty?
          USA - hid their participation in the Successor program for the creation of a new British SSBN with a universal missile compartment (Common Missile Сompartment - CMC) for the Trident-2 SLBM

          Is such activity prohibited by the START III Treaty, to which the UK was not and is not?
          own identification marks of the Trident-2 SLBM, which were kept assembled

          https://www.armscontrol.ru/start/rus/docs/start1/pril6.txt
          Quote: "1. A proprietary identification mark is a non-repeating alphanumeric serial number or a copy thereof, affixed by the inspected Party using its own technology to ICBMs for mobile launchers of ICBMs, as provided in paragraph 3 or 4 of this Annex."
          I don’t see anything at all, so far as it concerns ballistic missiles of submarines.
          the ICBM numbers were written on a piece of paper that the Americans pasted onto the rocket engine nozzle cover.

          Quote: "6. ... If your own identification mark applied to the launch container or the first
          an ICBM stage for mobile launchers of ICBMs is not readable as provided for in paragraph 5 of this Annex, such an intrinsic identification mark is duplicated on that part of the surface of a launch canister or the first stage of an ICBM for mobile launchers of ICBMs that is readable from it by inspectors or observers during a visual inspection. "
          That is, formally, this option is not prohibited if the designation mark is located on the missile so that it is not readable.

              about total violations revealed by the inspection

              And where are these "total violations"? All the fuss around identification marks does not pull more than a minor purely technical violation. If there was a violation at all. Here's the trick.

                  The entire Agreement is based on this work - accounting. This technical violation does not "pull"

                  The entire START I treaty was based on limiting the total number of strategic missile weapons of the parties involved. Inspections are just one of the mechanisms for monitoring how the parties fulfill their obligations, but not an end in itself.
                  what is installed ALREADY inside - maybe modernization, maybe unaccounted for, but the accounted one sold-donated to someone, and not one.

                  First surprise - the bilateral (between the USSR and the United States) START-1 Treaty did not establish any prohibitions on military-technical cooperation between the United States and Great Britain.
                  The second surprise - all the more so in the agreement there were no clauses that would prohibit any modernization of the ICBMs and SLBMs in service.
                  In general ... based on your words, then I will ask you two questions.
                  1) Can you name the source of information about the alleged violations during the inspection procedure?
                  2) Which clause of the START I Treaty was violated in this case?

                  Now I will remind you of your recent statements and my questions in connection with them ...
                  USA - sells Trident-8 SLBMs to the British strategic nuclear forces, which was not declared at the time of signing the START Treaty (April 2010, 2)

                        Interestingly, the girls are dancing ... And if we supply the DPRK and China with our Sineva and Bulava missiles to equip their submarines outside the framework of the START-3 Treaty, the Americans will not even be outraged? Something I do not strongly believe in this, so we do not need to push the idea that the new American missiles on British submarines are less dangerous to us than the same missiles on American nuclear submarines. The approach for these weapons must be integrated once the Americans are in command of NATO. And they must understand that our opinion must be taken into account, at least in this weaponry.

                  After all, you can take and test on target missiles with a range of up to 500 km, no, give them an average one.
                  They tested the missile defense system, there are medium missiles, and the booster blocks and other offal that were allegedly destroyed were put into action. In positive territory everywhere. Handsome men.

        However, this is a fact. They have lost not only the technology for producing plutonium, but also for enriching uranium, and for 20 years now. This is also the reason for the transition to nuclear weapons of "reduced power" or the purchase of uranium from the Russian Federation, did not you know that they have not been producing enriched uranium for a long time? They don't even extract it at home - Rosatom produces everything for them in the USA. daughter - Juranium Van company. Rosatom owns 100% of the shares. And the waste is cleaned by the French Areva. again technologies are lost. What for themselves to mess with when "friend Boris" sells how much you need? They did not take into account only that with the closure of such a production, specialists also die out, and this is an irreplaceable resource. Not to mention the fact that promising developments are not funded at all - and they are not. As a result, they have documentation on the diffusion enrichment of uranium, which is expensive and inefficient, but there are no specialists. And in the Russian Federation, gas centrifugal extractors ... Well, I know that in 2012 there was already the 5th generation. now, come on, 7th or 8th.

We then produce half of it, but do you really think it will not be sold to them by fellow NATO members? even if they have lost their skills .. this does not mean anything at all .. since they can buy from those who have not lost, even if not in the Russian Federation .. and with their machine tool, in a few years, together with engineers, the factories will buy and run. . I think they just sit for today - suits ..

                I don't think the NATO allies will sell them. For the same France, an increase in the arsenal of nuclear weapons in France and its decrease in the United States means that the United States of France is not a decree, and such chips as an attempt to put pressure on France to buy F-35 curves are simply unimaginable. And what about "buy and with a machine" - if it were so simple. They bought the documentation for the RD 30 years ago, and to repeat - what a hell it happened. And yet, specialists of such a level that they can arrange for the receipt of weapons-grade plutonium - they are not allowed to travel abroad and around under subscriptions, they cannot be physically bought

    The LC, and not the article, will be read by the Russian leadership and will listen to the opinion of the author. START-3, the continuation of the START-1 and START-2 treaties, and it was always a question of reducing nuclear weapons between the USSR-Russia and the United States, and none of the agreements took into account nuclear weapons deployed in Europe. The extension of the treaty by the United States is a PR that Russia will not renew this agreement.

    The signing of any agreements with the West for Russia has always ended badly. Exactly the same as for the leaders of Indian tribes. They also wanted to be "like white people."
    The agreement with the Entente generally led to the disintegration of RI and to the intervention of the Entente against the RSFSR. Brezhnev's "detente" and "convergence" - to the collapse of the USSR.
    First of all, because of the Kholui psychology of the "elite", which is the only way to break into the ranks of the "elite", because any agreements with the strong always end in the fact that after several preparatory chess moves the strong one simply hits the head with a chessboard his "kind of partner". And how can a hot-tsa look like a solid partner who is "negotiated"!
    Even "rising from its knees" Russia has an annual GDP 2 times less than France, with a population 2 times more. And who will behave with us "on equal terms"?

          Any NATO country finds itself under sanctions similar to those that were adopted against the DPRK and degrades without oil and gas. China does not need a nuclear-armed neighbor, which has fought most of its wars with China, for further expansion. In my opinion, Russia's support for these sanctions is V. Putin's greatest foolishness.

            In general, the regime of tough economic sanctions against North Korea was introduced only in 2006. In view of the North Korean nuclear weapons program.

It meant that the Korean state, which was from 3000 to 5000 years old, arose in the crucible of wars with China. Read the medieval history of Korea. The Kim Il Sung dynasty is a fleeting moment in Korean history. Now we are witnessing practically a revolution in the DPRK, where the military began to cede power and influence to scientists and intellectuals.

              To better imagine the causes of hunger in the DPRK, I recommend this source. Https://koryo-saram.ru/pochemu-sluchilsya-golod-v-severnoj-koree-intervyu-s-konstantinom-asmolovym/ That is, according to him, the main reason for hunger - sanctions imposed by Boris N. Yeltsin and the Russian Foreign Ministry. South Korea inadequately decided to take advantage of the stupidity of Russian diplomats and pushed through a ban on the supply of food to the DPRK after the start of the famine and the provision of loans to this country. In general, during the years of Yeltsin's rule, it was Russia that was an inadequate partner, whose actions depended on the whim of a president who abused drunkenness or on thieving officials. At the same time, Russia imposed an embargo on aviation fuel supplies to Afghanistan, which led to the fall of the Najibullah government. Few people know that for the first time sanctions against Yugoslavia were introduced much earlier than their official introduction, Pavel Borodin, the mayor of Yakutsk, when he had to exclude a Yugoslav and Russian company from participation in a tender for the construction of sewage treatment plants in favor of a company affiliated with him from Europe. The head of the thrown Yugoslav firm was on friendly terms with the prosecutor Carla del Ponta. Perhaps this forced P. Borodin to make a trip to Switzerland and there to abandon some of the money acquired during the construction of treatment facilities in Yakutsk.

      always ended badly

      Always when exactly?
      And oh yes, one little detail. Before the well-known events of October 1917, the Russian Empire was considered a part of this very "West". And the Russian emperors are equal members of a kind of super-elite club of European monarchs.
      The treaty with the Entente generally led to the collapse of Ingushetia and to the intervention of the Entente.

      Actually, no. The collapse of the Russian Empire was led by the stubborn desire of the authorities of the Russian Empire to hold on to a reactionary form of government in the form of an absolute monarchy and remnants of feudalism. The interests of the Russian Empire and Austria-Hungary (the first and most loyal ally of Germany in that historical period) were directly opposite - it was essentially a struggle between the pan-Slavic and German-centric projects for the organization of Eastern Europe.
      The intervention of the troops of the Entente countries was carried out purely in support of the White Guard troops and governments. Which were actually considered the Entente countries at that time the closest successors to the legitimate authorities of Russia. As the White Guards they supported were defeated in the Civil War of 1918-1922, the interventionists left the country virtually without a fight.

The current literal adherence to agreements on gas supplies to Europe in the face of European support for sanctions against these supplies, which resulted in useless investments in the construction of a pipeline to Bulgaria and Nord Stream. It was necessary to immediately stop these supplies, as Lenin did with the tsarist debts.

          Is it always when?
          For example, the Russian Empire (1721-1917) purchased weapons from Western Europe for approximately ALL the time of its existence.
          Moreover, the worse the relations with the West, the better Russia lives.

          Where did you get this heresy from? Third quarter 1998 - 2008. Sharp growth of gross domestic product and (approximately since 2002) - real disposable income of the population. 2010-2012 years. Moreover, the real disposable income of the population has been growing all this time, even despite the 2009 crisis. The drivers of economic growth are in many ways affordable and cheap credit capital from Western countries.
          It should also be noted that there is nothing exceptional in this dynamics - similar phenomena (a deep, severe crisis in the 1990s, followed by economic growth in 2000-2008) are characteristic of almost all countries of the former USSR. Yes, including Latvia and Lithuania. Moreover, SUDDENLY, the economic crisis of 1991-1999 in Ukraine was significantly more severe than the economic crisis of 1991-1998 in Russia (the then government of Ukraine did not have it with the "second France", yes).
          The exceptions to this rule are Estonia and partly Belarus (the crisis ended in 1996). Each for its own reasons.

        The treaty cannot stop the arms race. But the development of technology makes war without definite restrictions suicidal at some level. Some tribes in America and Southeast Asia gained access to firearms and exterminated their peoples in hopeless wars with competitors. Trying to translate economic competition into political, diplomatic or military conflict, the United States risks getting involved in a nuclear war or degrading as a result of the conflict. At one time, Great Britain and France, mutually competing, received a more dangerous enemy, Germany. So now, perhaps the Spanish-speaking, Indian, Muslim or Chinese worlds will become stronger than the Anglo-Saxon. It seems that now the danger of a nuclear war between the United States and Russia is much higher than during the Cuban missile crisis. Unlike those times, Russia is capable of inflicting more damage. US medicine has shown its lesser ability, compared to Chinese medicine, to survive in conditions of epidemics and biological warfare. Surely the opponents of the United States draw conclusions from this.

      I agree with this assessment, and in my opinion the author is not at all in the subject of why this agreement is beneficial to us.
      The main thing is that he somehow captures the Americans' STRATEGIC charges, and especially those that are on their missiles. Another important achievement of the treaty is that they undertake to place them on their territory - this is a very important point.
      As for OTR and other carriers up to 1000 km, they do not threaten us much from France and Great Britain - China is much more dangerous to us in this respect. Demanding to register these three countries in our treaty is on the verge of absurdity - they will never agree to this.
      And still no less important, which some forget about - the question is not so much in the charges themselves, but in the invulnerability of their delivery vehicles, especially if this happens at hypersonic speed along flat trajectories with maneuvering. So, no matter how they speculate about the INF, we must always remember that the Americans are only afraid of our heavy missiles, and everything else worries them less. That is why, realizing that they are losing to us in new media without showing off, they extended the Agreement, hoping that in five years they will find some way to neutralize our superiority. In which directions they will go is anyone's guess. But they will deal with it very seriously - for fear of being in a situation where their missile defense system will not play any role at all.

          The United States positions itself as an enemy of the entire Russian people

          And again, another morally filthy anti-American hysteria. And in this case, it is also completely false. The predictable truth, unfortunately.
          The United States of America is home to a Russian diaspora of over 2 million people. Local (targeting the audience in the United States) Russian-language mass media operate freely, as well as local dioceses and church structures of the Russian Orthodox Church (abroad).

If the Russians are crushed as they are crushed in Moldova, Ukraine or the Baltics, then Microsoft, for example, may be left without subroutines for power management and battery operation in the Windows operating system, which is made by a Russian-speaking programmer. Or the development of film diamond coatings for American missiles in early 2000 would have to be entrusted only to US citizens. For the United States, Ukraine is as much a competitor as Russia. If after the Maidan there was no squeezing of the Russian language, in Ukraine there would be no loss of Crimea, no war in Donbass, no flight of the developer of microdat controllers to Russia. But the United States is actively provoking oppression of Russians with all the ensuing consequences.

South Korea, unlike Russia, does not kick too much and runs its business at full capacity only where it is protected by the presence of Russia, for example, in Uzbekistan.

    The author's logic is clear and, at first glance, correct. NATO has absolute superiority in the number of people, economic power, conventional weapons, air force, navy. And now, with the withdrawal from the INF Treaty, it can also deploy medium-range missiles in Europe.
    In this context, it makes sense to use a single asymmetric lever to create balance.
    However, there are two mistakes, more precisely one - the author takes the authorities' propaganda aimed at the internal electorate for reality. Because of this, he has illusions about both the intentions of the authorities and the real possibilities of the Russian Federation.
    1) Concerning intentions. The authorities of the Russian Federation do not want to quarrel with the West in any way, this is for them the alpha and omega, the homeland of their soul and money. Literally today speaking to the powerful of this world, our main "patriot" Mr Putin said - "Russia and Europe are one civilization, they must be together," President Vladimir Putin said during his speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos. That is, if the West is at least ready to agree on something, the Russian authorities always go to the meeting.
    2) About the possibilities. The Russian Federation is de-industrialized, and extremely dependent on foreign goods, capital and components. Any conflict with the West, while maintaining a market economy, is an even greater sinking of the Russian Federation into them along the capitalist food chain. Even within the framework of missiles, where Soviet competence is still preserved, and even to maintain 1500 warheads, we are forced to keep Voevods with long expired use. It would seem that the Americans have problems with the fact that they relaxed and lost their plutonium capabilities. But the Russian Federation cannot take advantage of this. It cannot produce and maintain 5000 warheads within the framework of a real economy.

    This is an interesting question.
    Time does not stand still, and while maintaining an equal number of carriers, we now have this Avangard, and I hope soon - "Sarmat", Kh-102 on bombers.
    In addition, the S-400, the S-500 are coming out soon, and the Nudol, as well as new over-the-horizon detection equipment, and soon, China's connection to the early warning system. Electronic warfare systems, laser "Peresvet" and so on.
    So, the situation has become worse for the Americans, and qualitatively worse.
    And a new arms race, especially in those areas where they are critically behind us - it will no longer be so easy for them to bear.
    Something like that. It was Trump impudently trying to force China into this treaty, but in fact, he did not have much trump cards. Wanting is not harmful, but there is nothing to cover.
    Therefore, Biden almost in fire mode saves the contract, at least in the form as it is, leaving the Wishlist for later.

    It seems to be a good thing. But here's the thing - the time and situation in the world have changed since 2009, when this agreement was signed.

    Dear author Oleg Riko. Before writing anything about the contract, you should at least find out when it was concluded. Then they would have learned that it was concluded on April 8, 2010, and entered into force on February 5, 2011. And for you, as an author, it was signed in 2009. How then can you believe in something else, if even in such trifles you distort ...

    Then, at the time of signing, the treaty on the limitation of medium and short-range missiles was still in force. And now it doesn't work.

    AND??? How is the INF Treaty related to the START Treaty ???

    That is, it turns out that the United States may well deploy its IRBMs on the territory of its allies (like Britain)?

    In theory, they can. True, now they do not have warheads for medium-range missiles. Especially ballistic ...

    But the same Pershing in Britain - in relation to Russia, the most real strategic offensive weapons.

    Pershing? Now. So remember even more ancient "Jupiters" or "Torah", do not hesitate.

    Actually, the position becomes an exact copy of the eighties. When the Union and the United States tried to agree on the first START. The Americans then refused to consider their medium-range missiles strategic. And ours insisted that they are the most strategic ones.

    Yeah. Even then, our people called them "Euro-strategic". But answer the question, for Europe, our medium-range missiles, which were deployed almost one and a half times more than the American ones, were strategic? You don't have to mix everything in one bottle. We have NEVER mixed strategic and medium-range weapons. Flies separately, cutlets - separately

    If the Americans really want to extend the treaty, then let them offer at least something for it. It always happens in any negotiations?

    Yeah. So when they offered to freeze weapons at the current level, we were against it. And now you suggest that they suggest something? What? The current agreement is being extended. What other suggestions do you need? So that the Americans would unilaterally agree to reduce their entire submarine missile fleet to zero ?? Which Proposition?

    But I didn’t hear that the United States offered anything to Russia for this haste.

    In fact, Russia has offered to extend the treaty. Americans have "resisted", especially under Trump. Now, 10 days before the termination of the contract, they agree. And in your opinion, they should offer something else for "haste"? Do you think they are suckers ???

    We must not forget that working as a treaty inspector in the United States is a rather pleasant and highly paid position.

    Therefore, there is a considerable layer of military officials who are vitally interested in its extension.

    And what is the minimum and maximum rank for these inspectors? Their professional level? What can a military official know? Actually, this service is by no means so pleasant as to rush to it. There it will be necessary and, if necessary, to climb under the car, and to stain the handles in oil, if that. so this is by no means a resting place

    Thus, the extension of the START-3 treaty in modern conditions is unprofitable for Russia.

    Yes? The conclusion in your note is absolutely wrong. Unfortunately, there is no way to put a minus for such an article. And she deserves not one, but at least a dozen minuses.

    ANY agreement with mattress toppers is a global mistake .. The past 30 years have proven this very clearly.

    PS: We do not count the mythical, non-existent commitments about "NATO's non-expansion".

From the point of view of international law, such obligations have never existed and never existed. Point.
    You should also make a second reservation - there is a fundamental difference between "violate the agreement" and "in the prescribed manner to withdraw from this or that agreement"

    Respected. To your question you NEVER GET AN ANSWER... This question, which is like a sickle in one place for those who always write about the inability of the United States to negotiate with regard to strategic treaties

    Now START is not in our interests, let me remind you that the Americans have completely lost the technology for producing weapons-grade plutonium, they cannot make warheads. We don't need this contract

    Weighs a washcloth - start over. Again, all in one agreement - so that it was never concluded. The Americans, as always, have lost their competence - the fact that they have about 60 tons of weapons-grade plutonium - you should not pay attention to this. So, trash. Maybe you should delve deeper into this topic to know why and how ...

    Quote: Cowbra
    However, this is a fact. They have lost not only the technology for producing plutonium, but also for enriching uranium, and for 20 years now. This also caused the transition to nuclear weapons of "reduced power"

    What nonsense? This is a way to lower the threshold for the premium of nuclear weapons against countries that do not possess a large nuclear arsenal or do not possess it at all. In addition, only 50 warheads were converted from a total stock of approximately 3870 units.

    No need to equate refusal to extend the treaty with an immediate arms race, what kind of demagoguery?

    And it will begin. Moreover, such that we will regret it. The Americans will deploy what they were forced to withdraw from service. And this is half a hundred B-1B bombers, plus a couple of dozen B-52s from long-term storage. Of the non-deployed, they have a fairly large number of SLBMs and ICBMs. And what will we oppose to this? A plant that produces half a hundred ICBMs and SLBMs a year? And on the nose is the decommissioning of at least 36 Topol PGRK, next in line are a couple of dozen Voevods, in the coming years to be at the level we will have to write off another 78 Topol-Ms and replace them with Yars. This will take at least 4-5 years. There is no need to talk about an increase in the number of bombers. Fleet - for the same 5 years. However, for these 5 ribbons, the decommissioning of boats of the 667BDRM project will also begin. And this means another 4-5 years are needed to replace the "Sineva" with the "Bulava" on boats, if, of course, there will be opportunities to replace the 667 BDRM with the Borei

    About air defense / missile defense systems - I don't know if you need to explain something, if not laziness - look for yourself what they have and what we have.

    Benefits of Russia from the extension of START-3:
    1. As far as I know, Russia has fewer strategic carriers than the United States. The extension of the treaty will allow bringing the SNF quantitatively to one base.
    2. Russia has new weapons systems: Avangard, Sarmat, Tu-160m2. Those. There are opportunities to strengthen our strategic nuclear forces qualitatively by replacing old systems with new ones. The United States does not see such an opportunity.
    3. The limitation in the number of charges, slightly more than 2 per carrier, seriously limits the possibilities of the first disarming strike.

    Is it a mistake to extend START-3?


    In the current realities, the extension of the START-3 treaty means that, in fact, everyone stayed with their own people, no one lost or gained anything.

    Thus, the extension of the START-3 treaty in modern conditions is unprofitable for Russia.


    deeply wrong conclusion, since the prolongation of the treaty "as is" allows Russia to finish off and supply weapons to the troops on new physical principles. That in fact would have been impossible when a new treaty was concluded, in which the Americans would inevitably have demanded that it be introduced and brought under control, as happened at one time with BZHRK.

    And you definitely need the president to say. It is very difficult to read the contracts yourself and understand what and how?
    And most likely nothing will be a "Dagger". For its carrier is not a strategic bomber. "Petrel" and "Poseidon" - such weapons are not yet available, not even on experimental combat duty. There were no tests that confirmed something there. According to open sources, "Petrel" flew a very short distance, followed by an accident.
    But in principle, after putting these weapons ("Petrel", "Poseidon") into service, the Americans will most likely try to take all measures to ensure that these weapons systems either fall under the treaty, or they may try to do everything to make these weapons "prohibited" ... For the ranges of these systems will be INTERCONTINENTAL

    BZHRK "Barguzin" - if it is created, it will fall under the restrictions of the START treaty, most likely START-4.
    "Avangard" is clearly already falling into the scope of the START-3 treaty, "Sarmat" - also when it is created

    You understand, Andrey! You seem to have written everything correctly, only here is one detail. Treaty then STRATEGIC, and much of what you have written to strategic weapons can not be attributed even with a very strong desire. For example, electronic warfare systems. Over-the-horizon radars - here we are, by and large, going head-to-head with the Americans.
    Besides, in some positions, you, Andrei, run "ahead of the locomotive." "Sarmat" did not even reach the stage of flight tests. The Tu TU-60 is still in the version of the truncated modernization, but not in the version of the TU-160M2. And when such a bomber will appear is unknown.
    "Nudol" 0 is a missile defense system. Although there was once an ABM treaty, it is not a strategic weapon. They also test their products under this program.
    "Petrel" and "Poseidon" are so far only declared weapons, which have not yet been tested and it is not even known whether they will come out or not. So to say that they are critically behind us is impossible. Lagging, if there is something, is by no means critical

    in relation to the Soviet Union, medium-range missiles in Europe were the most strategic, since they finished off almost to any point in the European part of the USSR. In addition, the flight time of the same pershing was only 6 minutes, which left almost no time for an answer.
    Yes, ours according to the Western classification ss-20 also turned out to be strategic in relation to Europe. But not in relation to the United States.
    By the way, a very good analogue with the open-skies agreement. When the Americans banned our flying, and the Europeans continue to fly over Russia.
    However, it is enough to raise the newspapers of the early eighties and the Soviet Union, where these issues were very carefully described.

    And he is already signed. Now there is only an extension for 5 years according to the article of the agreement. Why discuss what was signed 10 years ago. Moreover, no changes have been made to the contract

    and how does it take into account the change in the geopolitical situation after the disappearance of the treaty on medium-range missiles?

    None. It's two NOT RELATED BETWEEN contract. Although both can be attributed to the strategic arms treaty. And with whom exactly should this agreement be linked?
    1. The United States does not have medium-range ballistic missiles and medium-range land-based cruise missiles.
    2. Britain does not have medium-range ballistic missiles and medium-range land-based cruise missiles.
    3. France does not have medium-range ballistic missiles and medium-range land-based cruise missiles.

    Who else have you forgotten? Israel? Yes, Israel has medium-range ballistic missiles, but not land-based cruise missiles. Moreover, Israel is not a member of NATO.

    Who has medium-range missiles?
    1. The DPRK
    2. The PRC
    3. Pakistan
    4. India
    And how can we connect the presence of an MRBM, for example, India (and Saudi Arabia and Iran also have nuclear MRBMs) with an agreement on STRATEGIC weapons between the US and Russia

    as I have already written, this is exactly what served as the main stumbling block for signing the treaty during the Soviet Union. Do you think the then generals and politicians were less literate and knowledgeable?

    This never served as a stumbling block for the signing of the treaty during the Soviet Union. Strategic agreements were signed quite systematically. There was a problem in signing the INF treaty, but even then it was initially politically motivated, like we want to sign - we don’t want to sign, and subsequently the long-term development and signing of this treaty rested mainly on technical reasons. In particular, the locations of basing (whether to allow the basing of MRBMs on the territory of the United States and in the Asian part of the USSR or not. option ".
    At the same time, problems with the INF Treaty were in no way associated with the SALT-START Treaties.

    You are disingenuous here.
    in relation to the Soviet Union, medium-range missiles in Europe were the most strategic, since they finished off almost to any point in the European part of the USSR. In addition, the flight time of the same pershing was only 6 minutes, which left almost no time for an answer.
    Yes, ours according to the Western classification ss-20 also turned out to be strategic in relation to Europe. But not in relation to the United States.

    At first. We NEVER considered these missiles strategic. The maximum term used then in propaganda was "euro-strategic". In addition, they DIDN'T REACH to any point in the European part of the USSR. Cruise missiles located in Britain finished off the maximum to Ryazan. Located in Italy and Germany - up to the level of Saratov. "Pershing" located in Germany - up to the level of Bryansk.

    Again, our "Pioneers" were, at least from a political point of view, "Eurostrategic". For if they were "strategic", they would fall under the limitations of the SALT-START strategic treaties.

    By the way, a very good analogue with the open-skies agreement. When the Americans banned our flying, and the Europeans continue to fly over Russia.

    Yah? It's strange. Russia has already withdrawn from this open-skies treaty. Putin made this clear at his annual press conference

    However, it is enough to raise the newspapers of the early eighties and the Soviet Union, where these issues were very carefully described.

    Yes. Soviet newspapers described. Only that which corresponded to the "highest interests of the party." And the propaganda was then at the level. The truth was not always true. By the way, are you aware that Pershing-2 did not “finish off” to Moscow from the BG that was on it? Moreover, MIT conducted studies that confirmed the reliability of the range provided by the Americans - namely, 1800 km. However, for the sake of higher interests, they went for a blatant deception, saying that Pershing could strike Moscow

    I just put the date incorrectly. However, does this change something in the main message of my post?

    This makes your article very careful. When the author at the very beginning, sorry is lying about the date, I do not think that everything else will be more credible.

    And even the simple non-inclusion of the arsenals of France and Great Britain into this agreement already makes it unprofitable and dishonest in relation to Russia.

    Frankly speaking, I'm tired of repeating the same thing. If you want the agreement not to be concluded - demand to involve other countries in the agreement. You propose France and Britain, the Americans - China. You can reach complete insanity. Demand the participation of all those with medium-range and nuclear weapons. That is, the DPRK, Israel, Pakistan, India. And what will this result in? The fact that the contract will never be concluded. For in this situation, the probability of finding points of contact and a "common denominator" is practically zero.
    Just imagine the participation of all these countries or even those you mentioned. What "ceilings" would you suggest? Keep in mind that the contract should be a compromise and please everyone. How many missiles or warheads would you suggest Britain have? How many do they have? Will they agree that at the same time Russia will have about 15 times more delivery vehicles than they have, and the number of deployed strategic warheads is 14 times more than theirs?
    And in this situation, will France agree to such a ratio? And China? And all the rest
    Therefore, all proposals to "fasten" someone or something to the agreement (for example, tactical nuclear weapons) are doomed to fail in advance.
