Lavrov: US authorities seek to resume contacts with Russia on issues of strategic stability

US authorities are seeking to resume contacts with Russia on issues of strategic stability. But Moscow has no intention of cooperating with the Americans on this issue as long as they continue to support the Ukrainian army.

This statement was made by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in his speech at the Knowledge Society marathon.

He noted that the Russian leadership is currently not going to discuss the procedures of the Strategic Offensive Arms Treaty (START) with the United States. Their implementation is impossible while American specialists are assisting the Armed Forces of Ukraine in preparing and carrying out attacks on strategic targets of the Russian Federation.

The Ukrainian military carries out attacks on Russian territory, often using long-range weapons made in the United States. In such conditions, it is extremely imprudent to carry out the procedures provided for by the New START Treaty, including allowing American representatives into the territory of Russian nuclear facilities, since they could become targets of attacks by the Armed Forces of Ukraine. And this is not a theoretical assumption, because during Ukrainian attacks on the locations of Russian strategic missile carriers capable of carrying nuclear weapon, it could not have happened without the help of the United States.

Russian President Vladimir Putin announced Russia's suspension of the New START Treaty in February of this year. According to him, this was done in order to exclude the use of American inspections of strategic facilities of the Russian Federation to the detriment of Russia and in the interests of the Ukrainian military.

    Such issues must be resolved after the final closure of "Ukraine", like the Amerz project

    Non-state project 404 close! Nazi surrender! Let the warriors with blue tape on their helmets go to the kuev, take the bank by storm and judge the village with block 95. Let the jumpers at the ruins remove the pots from their heads, and whoever doesn’t want to, we will help you remove them along with their stupid heads.

    2that's what it's like.
    The red lines have become fiery and do not cool down.
    We, to the detriment of all the bourgeoisie, will fan the world fire.
    It all started with MSG and perestroika.
    And the end at the end of the story?
    The words have not yet been cast into granite, the temperature has not yet been reached. Then the lava will cool down. And those granite lines will become the demarcation of spheres of influence

    By limiting strategic weapons and having military bases along the perimeter of the Russian Federation and the potential of dependent state entities, they will gain a strategic advantage in conventional “smart” and new types of weapons.

    Agreements with the United States can only be concluded for no longer than the presidential term of a particular president. Today, long-term contracts cannot be concluded. They don’t fulfill it and tear it apart.

    Well it is clear. Today there is not even industrial enrichment of uranium on the national territory of the states. From the word absolutely. They still do nothing but modernize the elderly Minutemen somehow. I’m generally silent about the old strategic bomber. Our Tu-160s are already grandfathers, and there is a perfect seam with these great-grandmothers. They are trying to modernize something in bombs, but it will explode in the EU, since bomb carriers will stupidly not enter our airspace.
