First Deputy Head of the Federation Council Committee on Defense Chizhov questioned the expediency of the START Treaty for Russia

At present, the last document in the field of arms control that remains in force is the Treaty on Measures for the Further Reduction and Limitation of Strategic Offensive Arms, signed by the Russian Federation and the United States. Vladimir Chizhov, First Deputy Head of the Defense Committee of the Federation Council of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation, stated this on the air of the Rossiya 24 TV channel.

During the tenure of US President Donald Trump, Washington was already going to terminate this agreement, but the administration of his successor Joe Biden went to extend the agreement. As a result, the START Treaty will remain in effect until 2026. However, after three years, Chizhov believes, the Russian Federation may no longer be so interested in preserving it.



Not so long ago, the US authorities insisted on the admission of American inspectors to Russia's strategic facilities. But Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov noted that in the current political situation this is inappropriate and untimely.

According to the diplomat, the blame for the situation around the observance of START lies entirely with the American administration. Until the goal of defeating Russia on a strategic scale is abandoned in Washington, any change in the arms control situation is not possible, Russian politicians say.

Recall that the Treaty between the Russian Federation and the United States on measures to further reduce and limit strategic offensive weapons was signed in 2010 in Prague (Czech Republic) instead of the previous START Treaty of 1991 and the Treaty on the Reduction of Strategic Offensive Potentials of 2002 (SNOR).

      after their "entry" with bio laboratories near our borders and in connection with the acute phase of confrontation, there can be no talk of any (or anything) agreements

        To be honest, the picture is emerging that only the USSR and Russia attached and attach great importance to all sorts of and various agreements with the Anglo-Saxons, both oral and written, but in fact they are deeply indifferent to the Anglo-Saxons and are not binding.

          Don't tell. Under the USSR, the impudent Saxons did not blather like that. "Line" was one. In, the difference between the "red lines" drawn by the current leadership is not even with pencils, but with chalk. Erase and forget...

        Speaking of brooms .. The states have a decent amount of chemical weapons (once enough to flood provincial and generally large cities in the European part of the Russian Federation .. Remains of biological weapons, it is not known how much and what (WHO and UN OPCW under their full control)

          The states have a decent amount of chemical weapons .... enough to fill the provincial and ... large cities of the European part of the Russian Federation

          Do you propose to resume the production of chemical weapons!?
          Maybe we need to return to this, otherwise, however, the impudent Saxons will decide to flood us, then what will we flood them with ???

        Everything is much simpler here. We have tons of signed papers. Only here to conduct an inventory - so a good half is not performed.
        Let's say there is an agreement on the destruction of chemical weapons - it has not been fulfilled. So you have to start with it. Guys bureaucrats are happy to run around showing the appearance of activity. All you have to do is make it a priority. If you want an agreement on laying hens, first do the destruction of chemical weapons first. And so - all this is an imitation of the usefulness of some officials.

      Yes, it is inappropriate: you just need, as China did, to set a ceiling for yourself: what and how much.

        I know what and how much ... To begin with, 300 million people with a predominance of Russian-speaking ... Yes

        Without the Federation Council, I realized a long time ago that it was impossible to negotiate disarmament with the United States ... And you can follow their lead after they remove their military bases from the countries: too much and close - the disgusting breath of sodomy turns out ...

      NATO camps are superior to us in conventional weapons, so start with them, and then it will be seen

        In general, an interesting picture is being drawn. "We will destroy you, but for now let's see how you will respond." We have already, unilaterally, destroyed a lot of things. Everything, everyone is free.

      Vladimir Chizhov pulled the bonbu - so far only the Information one. My opinion: the West will remain silent, as if nothing had happened.

      Si vis pacem, para bellum. It has long been necessary to stop kowtowing before "mattresses" and other "tobacco". Shit rats respect only a quickie and a kick in the ass. Unfortunately - "Homo homini lupus est." hi

        We have what they don't have yet. So why do we need these exceptional "scavengers". What don't we know about? There weren't even cartoons. hi

      Even the Indians 400 years ago said that the Anglo-Saxons have a forked tongue like a snake. First they say one thing. And then something completely different. It's a pity we didn't listen to the ancient sages

      In the current situation, it is not timely and not expedient!

      The US has already made a request to Japan to deploy hypersonic missiles. It's time for us to do the same in Cuba, in Venezuela. At least send requests too! And don’t think about START, you need to do it already !!!
