The United States decided not to return to the Open Skies Treaty

24

Russia may no longer expect the United States to return to the Open Skies Treaty; Washington decided to abandon the Russian proposal. This was reported by the Associated Press, citing a senior source.


The United States has already notified Russia of its failure to return to the Don, the corresponding notification was handed to the Russian Foreign Ministry in the person of Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov during a meeting of the latter with US Undersecretary of State Wendy Sherman. Washington considered it inappropriate to return to the Treaty from which they withdrew in November 2020.

Thus, Russia can calmly complete measures to withdraw from the Treaty and leave it after the United States. In principle, all that remains is to get the approval of the Federation Council, the State Duma unanimously voted to withdraw from the Don on May 15. The Federation Council postponed consideration of this issue in case the United States changed its mind and decided to return.

Recall that the United States left the Don in November 2020. Russia tried to work under the new conditions, but other countries could not guarantee that they would not transmit information received during flights over Russian territory to the United States. Against the background of these statements, on January 15, 2021, the Russian Foreign Ministry announced the launch of the procedure for Russia's withdrawal from the Don, leaving the United States room for maneuver, stating that the final decision would be made at the end of May.

        Withdrawal of the United States from the Don in any case allows the Pentagon to "tighten the screws" of military tension against the Russian Federation in countries bordering and near-border with Russia - namely strengthen provocative military intelligence along the borders of Russia by any technical means: flights of reconnaissance aircraft along the borders of the Russian Federation, entry of foreign ships into its territorial waters, etc. - an increase in what we have recently observed.

        All this is an unambiguous preparation of the United States for a war against Russia - and again this is a clear American attempt to wage its PROXY war not on its own, but on a foreign territory!

        In this case, any attempt to attack the territory of Russia from any country, except for the USA, should viewed by Russia as an attack on Russia by the United States itself and to assume precisely a simultaneous retaliatory strike on the territory of the United States itself.
        Putin has already said and warned the United States about this. I hope that in this case it will be so - and the United States in a new world war will, historically, quite rightly receive its RESPONSIBLE portion of destruction on its territory.

        Trump did not need DON - he also wanted to cancel SALT-3.
        Biden does not need DON - he is going to violate SALT-3. hi

      This is another game, the United States is trying to do so. so that Russia remains in this treaty, and the United States does not. I hope ours will not fall for this provocation and withdraw from the contract

    As I understand from today's news, the treaty has been denounced. Now you can forget about him. Europe is shocked by Russia's actions. Notice not the Americans, but us. Ugh on you.

      "If the bride leaves for another, then it is not known who is lucky"! Europe will more than once be shocked by the United States.

        "Well, she died, she died like that ..." There is a long-standing suspicion that this agreement was of little use to us.
        Moreover, they found a job for the TU-214ON and its unique capabilities will not remain without application.

    Well, with such a satellite constellation, apparently our sky has become quite open for them. Therefore, they come out. And it is not necessary to say that because of China, we cannot influence it, and they are well aware of this.

      Sonlasen. Progress does not stand still, and the fact that satellites were inaccessible 20 years ago, today "clicks" them at a time.
      .
      But on the other hand, this is the largest gully under the foundation of security built over the past decades and the fire of war will flare up more and more easily.
      That is, there is nothing good in this story, and it does not matter who is right and who is to blame for the destruction of this foundation.

        It seems to me to doubt who directs this current is senseless, who creates local fires and conflagrations around the world has long been known. And we will see whether it will reach the 3rd World War. But in my opinion it has been going for a long time, just by different methods

        Nothing much has changed in 20 years. As it was, the resolution of 0.5 m remained. The resolution of aerial photography is an order of magnitude better.

          For 20 years, a digital revolution has occurred and thanks to it, more information is pulled out of the same photos or videos, with multichannel shooting and processing. Much more.

    But what about the Tobaki from Europe? We have secret maps of Russia from space, but we will not show them to you! So how fast are the Russian troops on the border with Ukraine?

    It is also time for us to remove all US satellite correction stations from the territory of Russia.

    In general, it was a strange agreement, to say the least. The Union definitely didn’t need it; satellites provided everything it needed. And here is the schedule. And each side prepares for these flights. They did the right thing to get out of it.

    The essence of the Americans cannot be changed, but when they need to
    they can flatter and smile with their duty dental smile.

    The Americans are withdrawing from all the treaties, but does Russia have an aggressive policy?

    They showed us on our fingers
    What does "DON" mean in the subtext?
    Laugh at Russia
    Washington deigned.
    Mr. Biden, don't hope
    That we will change our tone.
    Hit the wall with your head
    Rejected ...

    It seems to me alone that the Russian spies, whose dynasties simply pass the White House from hand to hand, have finally corrected the mistakes of the Gorbachev era, the INF Treaty was canceled, DON too, what is still left ... the demarcation line in the Chukchi Sea, and Ukraine to join the DPR ?
