The US State Department urged Russia to return to the implementation of START against the backdrop of existing risks

Russia should return to implementation of the Treaty on Further Measures for the Reduction and Limitation of Strategic Offensive Arms (START), since the suspension of participation will not affect US support for the Kyiv regime. This was stated by the press secretary of the US State Department, Ned Price.

According to the American diplomat, the United States is now working on the treaty, counting on Russia's return to its implementation. Price called Russia's actions "irresponsible", stressing that a nuclear power should cooperate with other countries in the field of strategic stability and arms control.

Interestingly, at the same time, the “collective West” openly declares the need for a strategic defeat of Russia, wages a proxy war against our country, and at the same time believes that Moscow will show political short-sightedness and let American inspectors into its strategic facilities.

In addition, the START does not apply to France and Great Britain, which are the closest military allies of the United States and can also use their nuclear potential in the event of a conflict.

Recall that the Treaty on Measures for the Further Reduction and Limitation of Strategic Offensive Arms implies a reduction in the nuclear arsenals of both the United States and Russia. But in the current situation, which contains certain risks for our country, such a policy becomes inappropriate. Therefore, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced during his message to the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation the decision to suspend the country's participation in the treaty.

    Here! C.T.D.! Since they need it, we, on the contrary, do not have to agree! I kept thinking what was there in this agreement, why was there such an emphasis on it in the message to the Federal Assembly. There are different versions, of course. But this very nervous reaction of the Americans and their sing-along mongrels suggests that this is a sore spot. The question begs why? Maybe they know and suspect something that is not known to the general public? see themselves as a threat? Is it some kind of pain point? they are losing face now begging ... very interesting, but in this area the nifga is not competent .... Maybe someone will throw in a version?

      Americans perceive the suspension of START so painfully, because they consider a preventive strike on Russian nuclear facilities as very effective, and therefore desirable, but for this you NEED TO KNOW EXACTLY where everything is and in what condition. Simply put - you need to know exactly where to hit !! Otherwise, there may be a big return

      There is an assumption that they cannot afford a new nuclear race. There are problems with fuel enrichment, carriers, missile defense. They are still in the process of developing hypersound and do not have a ready-made solution for intercepting it.

      They, most likely, can master all this, but it will take a lot of money.

      In the face of competition with China for the Moon, space and microchips, a huge budget deficit (~$80-100 billion monthly), a huge public debt, a reduction in investments in public debt from other states (-$500 billion in 2022), a huge amount of public debt and inflation, collapsing infrastructure in the country, it can be just an overwhelming task.

      It seems that they can no longer simply print money and compete, they cannot force the fulfillment of the contract by force, all that remains is to "put pressure on the rotten", in the hope that it will work.

        Affordable is another matter. To draw impoverished America into a new arms race, it is on their decline ..
        There seems to be no technology, no scientific schools, for a new round of the race, let's start with this.
        The competition to replace the Minutemen3 is indicative, only the Boeing is left if it refuses too .. It will remain to rely on Mask by 2050))

          Exactly. It is possible that this is exactly what the plan is.

          If you think carefully, the question arises, what is the point of treating the symptoms (Ukraine), if you do not treat the cause (the States). Well, there will be Poland or Kazakhstan after Ukraine, you won’t kill everyone.

          Therefore, it is possible that China and Russia are drawing the States into an arms and technology race, while simultaneously trying to knock out a stool in the form of a dollar from under their feet, reducing investments and its object in trade. Well, at the same time, trying to hang a little more burden on the States in the form of Ukraine. This, perhaps, explains the absence of swift and bloody attacks in Ukraine, since it is necessary not only to capture it, but to make it slowly bleed, and the West fought over its resuscitation.

          How effective such a plan - time will tell.

          It is possible that China, not without reason, exactly a year after the start of the operation, began to actively shine. His, even relatively insignificant, assistance to Russia, for example, assistance with intelligence from Chinese satellites, will lead to the fact that the West will have to increase its assistance to Ukraine many times over, and they have already overspent and gone into a big minus. It's no joke, they froze 350 billion from Russia. And some subsidies for gas had to be allocated more than 700 in just one year ...

          Suspended only inspections from the United States. The Foreign Ministry explained that the quantitative restrictions would continue to be observed. Of course, I have little faith (otherwise why stop inspections), but this is the official position.
          Arms race America can't afford? Is it okay that the Pentagon's budget is larger than the state budget of the Russian Federation? No technology? There are no scientific schools? The same thing was said a couple of years ago by inertia about rocket engines, when the Falcon 9 was already flying. As a result, the Russian cosmonaut flies to the ISS as part of the Dragon crew from Florida. Maybe everything was done on foreign brains, as they like to say, but still in America. So you can rely on Musk right now: his missiles fly and fly well.

          +1, USA this war is also not free. And if they successfully wrestled with the USSR in the end solely because they had realists in politics against our idealists who successfully played on mistakes, now with the collapse of the USSR, the realists have left their politics as well. Previously, they had a powerful economy with a real sector, they had their own industry. They did not have such a competitor in world business as China. Therefore, when promoting their interests, they had money not only to force, but also to give some kind of buns. Now the funds are clearly no longer there. I'm not talking about green wrappers, that is, the complex, imaginary part of capital, but about what the real sector produces. China, by the way, does not incur such losses at this time, on the contrary, it actively earns, while trying to get involved to a minimum, although they are gradually trying to draw it in. Moreover, as you can see, the Americans are making more and more mistakes, more and more stepping on a roughly Soviet rake (I'm talking about the policy of idealists not to take into account the realities around them), trying to speak with everyone from a position of strength, and spitting on other people's interests. At this time, even the Saudis publicly omitted them at the beginning of the year, asking them not to try to “quietly” agree with them on increasing oil production. The document has been published.
          So the more the West spends, the more profitable it will be, first of all, for China, and for other players who are not tied to the collective West. Trump, it seems, is a realist, because he sees where everything is going and seems to be trying to deal with internal problems, perhaps he wants to make the country a regional leader within the framework of a potential multipolar world according to the principle "a tit in the hand is better than x to f", but where already there. The idealists of the realists have now squeezed out the rod for trouble, ignoring the real possibilities and the opinions of others.

        The last arms control treaty with the United States has sunk into oblivion. The arms race and Cold War 2.0 are in full swing. Many experts believe that the Third World War is already in full swing. Indeed, WWII began with local conflicts. If we take into account the war between Japan and China, then the scale of hostilities there was much larger than the NWO. And not the fact that the Third World War will be nuclear. WWII also did not become chemical. Although the opponents had all the possibilities for this. But chemical weapons were never used, with the exception of gas chambers in concentration camps.

      This agreement hides our sword in its sheath! Without it, it will be possible to pull this sword out of its sheath and wave it in front of the face. The thought process accelerates in the face and the feeling of self-defense too.

    These are half-measures and very cautious. We need to withdraw from the treaty, not suspend it. The reaction of the West will be even more interesting. interesting for us. They fear and respect only strength. Everything else is a sign of weakness.

    A very sore spot because the arms race is a lot of money, especially in the nuclear field. If Russia has only been developing the nuclear sphere in all its directions for the last two decades, including in armaments. Then the states rested on the laurels of the collapse of the USSR, why produce and enrich uranium, fuel for nuclear power plants, if it was supplied practically for nothing in any quantities. The HEU LEU agreement played a cruel joke on the states, they still do not have centrifuge enrichment technologies ... and this is only one of the problems. For example, one of the leading companies in the nuclear power industry, the Westinghouse Electric Company, has already gone bankrupt twice, if my memory serves me... And so it is in the states in about everything related to nuclear affairs. Somewhere around 20% of all nuclear fuel for nuclear power plants is supplied to the states by Russia ... The arms race is another unbearable weight, and you will have to start from a "low" start, here even money does not solve everything, competencies have been lost.

    The Americans are doing badly in the field of uranium enrichment. They do not pull the nuclear race. So they want to leave everything as before through the media and diplomats! If the Americans were negotiable, it would make sense to bargain!

    "Russia should return to the implementation of the Treaty ... since the suspension of participation will not affect US support for the Kyiv regime."
    Here are stupid ... And why should we return then?
    Yes, we refused not so that this would affect US support for the Kyiv regime, but in order to strengthen our strategic offensive arms, in accordance with new risks and realities
    1. Vladimir80
      Vladimir80 2 March 2023 11: 41
      the problem is that we have not abandoned strategic offensive arms, but have suspended them - which means that we continue to fulfill all the requirements of the agreement, we just do not let Amer's inspectors into our territory ... ("swing for the ruble, strike for a penny")

    If they strongly call, then for sure - we do not need it. Nuclear weapons should be located only within the borders of the countries to which they belong - this is the time. The treaty should include all countries that have nuclear weapons - that's two. I do not think that North Korea will sit down at the negotiating table with Western countries, they are not as naive as we are, who have already been deceived so many times. - that's three.

    "Russia SHOULD return to the START treaty," Ned Price, spokesman for the US State Department, said. And why is it so soft, straight fawning then? And why not strike like a woman like that with a fist on the table, and not ORDER Russia? Well, how about "militant ladies"?
    "Russia MUST return to the Strategic Offensive Arms Treaty (START). German Foreign Minister Annalena Berbock said this at a disarmament conference in Geneva, Ukrinform reports on Monday, February 27."
