Russian Foreign Ministry warned of completion of procedures for withdrawal from the Open Skies Treaty

22

By the end of May, Russia will complete all procedures preceding the country's withdrawal from the Open Skies Treaty. In the event that the United States does not announce its return to the Don by this time, Moscow will finally leave the treaty, the Foreign Ministry warned.


The Russian Foreign Ministry is preparing a bill to withdraw from the Don, in the coming days it will be sent to Vladimir Putin for familiarization, and then it will be considered in the State Duma and the Federation Council, warned in Moscow.

According to the head of the Russian delegation at the Vienna talks, Konstantin Gavrilov, Russia is required to make unilateral concessions and continue to fulfill its obligations under the treaty, but Moscow will not make concessions and will continue to prepare the final withdrawal from the Don.

The fact that Russia will leave the Open Skies Treaty after the United States was announced in January 2021. The reason for this was Europe's refusal to comply with guarantees of keeping secret information received during flights over Russia and not transmitting it to the United States. According to the data received by Moscow, the United States, having withdrawn from the treaty, forced the allies to sign an agreement on the transfer of data received by these countries during flights over Russia.

At the same time, Moscow said that if the United States returns to the treaty, Russia will also remain in it.

However, judging by the latest news from the USA, everything goes to the fact that they are not going to return to the treaty. In early April, the US Air Force announced its decision to write off both Boeing OC-135B aircraft used in flights within the framework of the Don. Promises to return to the treaty using Allied aircraft are not taken seriously, even by experts. So from the beginning of June, Russia will begin the procedure for withdrawing from the Open Skies Treaty.

    For a long time it was necessary to refuse, too often the United States whined the planes we have hefty-eyed, then we do not allow them to see everything and everyone, the cunning of America is already starting to tire. So that's the way it should be.

      Well, as G. Bellamy used to say: "The most exact science is thinking with hindsight." So that the Russian Federation should take this into account and not rely on the "hind mind", but immediately act. "Aptly and Strongly"

        I welcome Egoza, until we succeed in the 90s, we have so persistently tried to become our own for the West that we have become very tightly woven into their system and to tear everything connected with the economic component more dear to us, the West provides too many of us.

        Secret diplomacy gets in the way sometimes. They don’t say on TV what and how they are discussing on the sidelines. And there is clearly not the same picture as in the media. America is pouring in not because of Russia, China, but because its fans and fans have ceased to believe in it, as in a great democracy. The end of the idea, propaganda, as in the USSR, all empires are crumbling so. Not fast, but clearly and confidently crawling to the edge of the abyss. Take America 20 years ago and what now. And Trump is still a legitimate president, power has not been transferred to Biden, it was a secret coup, just not like the others. Another country, different customs. In general, there began an active phase of hunting for a witch, now someone can get Kennedy into account from the Democrats.

      They extended only while their new ICBMs are being developed and Ohio's replacement is planned. If not renewed, then they will be the losers, because Russia will be able to uncontrollably build up deployed carriers, but the United States will not.

        What's the point? Overkill is no longer fashionable, it will be so. The main issue is in the detection of a launch and interception, and it is precisely the launch of the first wave, then there will be no one and nothing. And the Perimeter will work by itself.

          Well, that's about interception. Those limits that can be set in strategic offensive arms with current technologies, and if we add positional areas, then it's decent. Therefore, you have to invest substantial money in technology and all sorts of avant-gardes.

          If there is no strategic offensive arms, then you can simply devalue the missile defense system by stupid scaling, it will probably come out even cheaper.

            It is not a fact that it is cheaper, here the trick is that the charges "rot", become contaminated with fission fragments, they need to be "cleaned" at regular intervals. By the way, that is why they are not yet in orbit - it is expensive to carry them here and there. IMHO, of course)

              Therefore, they pump so much money into the Mask with its reusability.

                It looks like ... As it turned out, no savings happened, so it's not about money, but something else, for example, the regular return of some cargo to the ground, and it is unlikely that these are diapers) Additionally, Musk, being a businessman , is not obliged to disclose information, also a bold plus to the thickness of the screen ...

    I don’t understand our sugary persistent persuasion from the United States to return to the treaty. Well, if they said they were leaving, then what's the point of trying to persuade them to show our interest? Such actions (persuasion, attempts to explain something, etc.) are perceived by the Americans as weakness. Here, they say, look at how the Russians are on their heels and beg not to withdraw from the treaty. Yes, without any "open skies" they declared that Russia is concentrating its troops near the Ukrainian borders and have been playing it for almost a month. As a result, the Ukrainian concentration of troops and heavy equipment in Donbass was excluded from the agenda of the Western media.

      This is not a girl to persuade her. If the United States does not want to, Russia should immediately respond in a mirror-like manner. There is no need to fawn on them.

    ... Now what? Will everything calm down or, on the contrary, will they pass it on, without an object for which one could squeal?

    At the same time, Moscow said that if the United States returns to the treaty, Russia will also remain in it.

    Is it really necessary for us?
