Pentagon: Russian arsenal of non-strategic nuclear weapons exceeds the American

45
Russia is not interested in negotiations to reduce non-strategic nuclear weapons, US Defense Secretary Joe Sawers told Sputnik.




"The United States reduced its non-strategic nuclear weapon by about 90% since the end of the Cold War. The remaining weapons of Russia far surpasses in numbers the rest of the United States. We still want to conclude an agreement with Russia that would respond to the gap in non-strategic nuclear weapons between the Russian Federation and the United States in an attempt to preserve and reduce the number of such weapons in a verifiable way, ”Souers quotes RIA News.

“Unfortunately, we do not have an active partner in these negotiations now,” he added.

Earlier, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova drew attention to the fact that, in the 90s, “Russia cut its arsenal of non-strategic nuclear weapons four times.” She also noted that in Europe “deployed tactical US nuclear weapons remain not only in Germany, but also in Belgium, the Netherlands, Italy and Turkey”. In addition, according to her, "the US is upgrading its nuclear bombs, and NATO members in Europe are aircraft carrying such weapons."

“As the Russian Federation understands, the capabilities of our nuclear forces were and remain fully consistent with our obligations under the treaties, not only with the Non-Proliferation Treaty,” commented Souers to Zakharova’s statement on the modernization of American nuclear weapons in Europe.

Earlier, the ZDF channel, citing information from the US budget department, said that “preparations for the deployment of new US nuclear bombs of the B61-12 type are currently beginning at the Büchel air base in Rhineland-Palatinate”.

          Russian non-strategic nuclear arsenal exceeds American

          First, the withdrawal of Pindo troops from all over Europe, and then negotiations.

            And let the dollar emission center in the Russian Federation be created under the control of the FSB. And we will allow them to print rubles. And yet, I almost forgot: let Alaska be returned with the Aleutian, and indeed the Hawaiian islands.

      The hypocrite of the American propaganda machine seems to have no limit. The main thing is to blurt out first, and then let those who want to understand. And in the West, few people understand that in the Russian Federation non-strategic nuclear weapons are primarily special military units for missile defense and long-range air defense missiles. Of course there are hundreds of them. And how else to defend against a swarm of missiles and a massive raid?

        All statements from across the ocean must be read exactly the opposite (as a striking example is the fight against IS in Syria). The essence of this message: we have so many non-strategic nuclear weapons that we urgently need to accuse Russia of having even more ... Profit! And that’s all! This is not us, this is a terrible shaggy bear with nuclear grenades. wassat

      They clearly consider us suckers, but why do not we get out of the INF Treaty, because their SM3 is fired at 1500 km and they are in Romania at stationary launchers and new modifications hit the ground.

      We won’t even look, it’s all clear how much NATA has approached our borders and is now creating bases in the Baltic states, although there were agreements that there would be no bases in the border states with Russia. So there’s something for the collar. yes

    He is ridiculous, this Joe, if Russia is not interested, it means that this does not meet our "defense strategy", they will not understand the "sick" ones in any way, not everyone will dance to the striped tune.

    You wanted to see the parity in terms of tactical nuclear weapons, but the United States does not want to reduce the number of conventional weapons to the number of weapons of the Russian Federation? 1 Aircraft carrier to leave, not 11, 12 destroyers, not 62, Air Force fighters up to 760, etc. etc.

    "Earlier, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova drew attention to the fact that in the 90s," Russia has quadrupled its arsenal of non-strategic nuclear weapons "....

    Not only that - they do not talk about it, but nuclear weapons have their own storage periods, and must be disposed of in a timely manner, and a new one should be replaced to replace it ...

    So I’m not sure that within at least 20 years in Russia a new nuclear weapon was developed and produced ... But the old had to be destroyed, disposed of ...

    So the real picture may not be in our favor ...

    And they are not hiding about a hundred new atomic bombs imported into Germany ... What, too, are intended to fight against ISIS ???

    The bells are very bad ... As long as diplomats "sing songs" and hang out, it is urgent to restore our TNW in all forms ...

    What a pity that Russia is not disarming unilaterally. We have imposed the INF Treaty on them, nothing that the French, British and Israelis own. And out of the ABM Treaty. We place new atomic bombs in the Federal Republic of Germany. We violate the non-proliferation treaty, involving non-nuclear-power pilots in the exercises. NATO is expanding endlessly to the borders of Russia, attracting more and more new members, increasing both the strength and quantity and quality of weapons. By limiting Russia, the CFE Treaty has already surpassed it several times in conventional weapons. So she darling still wants to defend herself.
    Of course, tactical nuclear weapons are the solution to all problems with NATO. So we are scurrying around.

    Recently, there has been a kind of chatter on the "other side" ... The lag in aviation, now in nuclear weapons, then tanks are better ... It seems to me that they will ask me to increase funding and "print" new green candy wrappers ... sad And yet, this is not the first time I think, but if the Russian Federation had the opportunity to print world money, how would we behave then? ... Would you stick your nose everywhere, like "exceptional" ??? what

      history says that- NO. Russia is multinational, multiconfessional, etc. etc. Russia never participated in crusades, didn’t start wars, did not arrange genocide of any native population. I didn’t bomb the civilian population of cities under the pretext of combating imaginary terrorists, as our “partners” do.

    I would say that the number of non-strategic nuclear weapons in the West is two to three times greater. But we have a better delivery system. That is, the carriers - Tornado and F-16, we knock for a sweet soul, and the Iskanders will fly guaranteed

    We will live as long as we live in peace or just LIVE, as long as we have something to answer to external aggression. Until now, we are independent. If we (Russia) spit out our nuclear teeth, we will become a colony. Or they’ll just roll us out. That's what infuriates me the most; America is always trying to compare our nuclear arsenals. But they did not think about how we should level the difference in conventional weapons with the NATO bloc and all their allies? I do not argue, our army and navy are strong, our army surely takes the second place in the world in its power. But there are so many of them, allies of the USA ...
    and in general, what does nuclear weapons in Germany do? And in the "non-nuclear" countries ?? Can they give an answer? We do not need to reduce, but we need to build up our nuclear potential.

    after all, their SM3 is fired at 1500 km and are in Romania on stationary launchers, and new modifications hit the ground.

    Those who will "bullet" at 1500 km are not yet in service. And the fact that they can shoot on the ground is also not a 100% fact. On the previous SM-2 model, they tried to do this for 300 km. So the accuracy was lower than the plinth, in fact it was an unguided rocket. I'm afraid that the SM-3 variant of the BMD
