"Does not take into account Russia's new weapons": Republicans are against the extension of the START-3 treaty for five years

52

In the House of Representatives of the US Congress, Senior Republican Foreign Affairs Committee Representative Michael McCall and Senior Republican Committee on Armed Services Mike Rogers criticized the White House. The reason was the decision of the administration of President Joseph Biden to prolong for a five-year period the agreement with the Russian Federation concerning the further reduction and limitation of strategic offensive arms (START).


A joint statement by Republican Congressmen appeared yesterday on the official website of the Foreign Affairs Committee.

In addition, GOP lawmakers noted that the US nuclear deterrent capability needs upgrading.

The Republicans opposed the extension of START-3 for five years because, in their opinion, it does not take into account the new weapons that have appeared in the arsenal of Russia.

It is disappointing that the Biden administration missed the opportunity to negotiate a more serious version of a new treaty that would include non-strategic nuclear weapons and a strong verification regime.

- noted in the statement of McCall and Rogers.

In their opinion, due to the extension of the agreement for a long time without additional conditions, the United States will lose its leverage on Russia.

On Tuesday, the Russian Federation and the United States agreed to renegotiate the START Treaty for a period until February 5, 2026. Yesterday the State Duma deputies unanimously approved the ratification of this agreement.

    You have no leverage, that's why you are going to renew the contract ...

                Republicans WRONG: New Russian Armaments do not fit under the START treaty in view of the absence so far. To include them, a new treaty (or an amendment to the old one) is needed, which the Americans will certainly begin to "break through" as soon as.

                  new Russian weapons are not subject to START.

                  Sarmat 100% fits.
                  And so are the Vanguard bearers.
                  Only the Vanguard goes one instead of 3 normal BBs.
                  We determine the balance of BB and carriers ourselves.
                  The number of those and others is spelled out in START-3.

    They are dissatisfied with the fact that they did not set their conditions that were beneficial only to them. I'm worried, I'm very worried about Russia's new weapons.

"Petrel" and "Poseidon" if they ever get to the series - then they will talk about them. Although this is unlikely to happen in the 5 years of the existence of START-3

    The Dagger is really not one of those systems that can be limited by the START III treaty. At least until they are deployed on strategic bombers. "Poseidon" - such a weapon system does not yet exist. Announced - yes. In reality, it is not. Therefore, it does not yet fall under the contract.
    But about the "Vanguard" Madame Panina was a little deceitful. Carrier 15A35 (15A35-71) on which Avangard is installed is one of the systems that are subject to the provisions of the agreement. So Avangard falls under the extended START-3
