Recently, six years have passed since the signing of the Treaty between Russia and the United States on measures to further reduce and limit strategic offensive arms (START-III). The document was signed in April 2010 of the year in Prague. The State Department noted that the implementation of strategic offensive arms is going well. Russian military experts say that Washington is violating the START Treaty, and they are issuing a list of obvious violations of the articles of the document.

The agreement on measures to further reduce and limit strategic offensive arms (START III) between the Russian Federation and the United States was signed on April 8 of 2010 of the year, that is, six years ago. The new document replaced the START Treaty of 1991 of the Year (later called START-I) and the Offensive Potential Reduction Treaty of 2002.

START III entered into force on February 5 2011 of the year. It obliges the Russian Federation and the United States to reduce and limit the number of deployed and undeployed strategic offensive weapons. According to the agreement, the Russian Federation and the United States can carry out eighteen inspections each year. Exchange of information on the number of weapons the parties hold on March 1 and September 1 each year.

A month ago, at a meeting of the nuclear security roundtable, US Assistant Secretary of State Frank Rose praised the implementation of the START Treaty quite highly.

"I am glad to say that, despite all the challenges that we have with Russia today, the fulfillment of the agreement is going well," Rose quotes. RIA News".

Mr. Rose clarified that both parties conduct inspections and exchange information on the movement of strategic forces. In addition, there is a bilateral advisory commission.

Earlier, the Russian Foreign Ministry, the agency reminds, noted that "the implementation of the provisions of the START Treaty is an example of Russia's strict compliance with international obligations in the field of non-proliferation and arms control."

At the same time, Deputy Secretary of State Rose Gottemoeller spoke about START. Her statement also leads RIA News".

“Cooperation with Russia continues in a number of areas,” she said at a briefing on the nuclear security summit. - In particular, we are working on a new treaty on strategic offensive arms. And despite the current crisis in relations and disagreements over Ukraine, we continue to implement this agreement using very practical methods. ”

April 5 in the press appeared the statement of the official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Maria Zakharova.

The Russian Foreign Ministry believes that after Russia and the US implement the START treaty, the possibilities for both sides to reduce will be exhausted. This is due, among other things, to the development of Washington’s non-nuclear weapons.

“It is necessary to look for ways to join the process of nuclear disarmament of all other states with a military nuclear potential,” Zakharov quotes. "Moscow Komsomol". This is primarily about US allies in NATO.

The mention of the United States and its allies is not accidental.

Major-General, Associate Professor, Candidate of Military Sciences, Professor of the Academy of Military Sciences, Honored Military Specialist of the Russian Federation MP P. Vildanov in his article “Inequality Partnership” for "Independent newspaper" (“Independent Military Review”) identified a number of violations by the American side of the START Treaty, including Article XIII, according to which the parties cannot transfer strategic offensive arms to third parties. Americans pass them on to the British.

The expert believes that the American side "permits gross violations of Article XIII of the START Treaty." First, Washington is implementing a non-announced at the time of signing the contract (8 on April 2010) selling the Trident 2 SLBM to the British strategic nuclear forces, participating in the Vanguard SSBN modernization and in the technical docking of the British SSBN and US-based missiles , carrying out autonomous and complex tests. In addition, Americans train British specialists, dock Triangle-2 SLBM systems with British warheads and SSBNs, participate in the control and launch launches of British SLBMs from the Eastern Missile Range, etc.

Secondly, another violation of Article XIII is related to the fact that at the time of signing the agreement, the Americans hid their participation in the Saccessor program to create a new British SSBN with the development of a universal missile compartment (Сommon Missile Сompartment) for the Trident 2 SLBM.

Thirdly, Washington and London carry out other types of undeclared cooperation not regulated by this agreement: coordination of nuclear planning documents, selection of targets, distribution of targets between carriers and warheads taking into account their performance characteristics, coordination of ballistic flight of carriers through the territory of other states, development and the implementation of forms and methods of combat use, combat duty, operation of weapons and equipment, etc. In this cooperation, another nuclear alliance is observed uk - Paris.

The expert also sees another gross violation of the START Treaty by the Americans: B-1B strategic bombers, declared as carriers of conventional weapons, are not, and this means creating a returnable nuclear potential: the possibility of their re-equipment for performing nuclear tasks is retained.

Not only the thirteenth article spat the United States.

The expert points out that Washington is violating the key position of the preamble to the START Treaty on the “presence of a relationship between strategic offensive arms and strategic defensive weapons”. For Russia, such a “relationship” has long failed to meet the interests of the military security of the state: after all, the deployment of a global US missile defense system, an European missile defense system, and others has a negative effect on the combat capabilities of Russian strategic nuclear forces.

The United States is also violating another preamble to the START Treaty, which takes into account "the impact of ICBMs and SLBMs in conventional equipment on strategic stability." Testing launches and the creation of a group of non-nuclear strategic missiles in the United States is destabilizing, and even the US Senate does not risk approving a program to finance the relevant work until the Pentagon proves that launching such missiles, especially with Ohio-type SSBNs, will not lead to nuclear confrontation with Russia and China.

Finally, the expert notes the possibility for Americans to secretly re-equip ICBMs and SLBMs with nuclear warheads, since control and inspection procedures are not defined in the START Treaty and its annexes.

In conclusion, Vildanov notes that the START Treaty contains a significant amount of “articles that are detrimental to strategic nuclear forces of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation concerning the construction and development of mobile ground-based missile systems”.

The fact is that most of the articles were borrowed from the text of the old treaty (START I). They must be abandoned unilaterally, the military expert believes, because otherwise the measures taken by the Russian Federation in the interests of countering the US global strike and missile defense are worthless.

Not surprisingly, we add on our part that the United States as a whole is satisfied with how Russia fulfills its obligations under the treaty. After all, Washington itself refers to its other articles formally. In addition, in recent years, American politicians and military have formed a negative image of Russia. Among American generals, Russia is considered the "number one threat."

There is a cold war in the world again. In such conditions, the START Treaty very quickly approaches its “exhaustion”.

America is building up its forces in the Baltic states, Poland, Romania, Bulgaria — and only a nuclear club can warn them. To disarm in front of countries that have declared Russia the number one enemy is insanity, which must be stopped immediately and let them think what they want, one cholera ...

          Definitely - the strategic nuclear forces are the only thing that keeps the Fed and world rulers from an immediate attack on Russia. and also to China. which, although it entered into economic cooperation, it pursues an independent policy and becomes a new center of power instead of the USSR

        Only yesterday, in one of the posts, the United States withdrew from the INF Treaty, as they say the Russian Federation violates this treaty. That's why it is necessary to declare that Russia withdraws from the START-3 treaty for the reason that the United States withdrew from the ABM Treaty. And put medium-range missiles on Chukotka, to shoot the entire territory of the United States, grabbing the satellite and the United States Canada.

      Ortega! 06.09/45. In fact, the observation is correct. US life is like the life of criminal elements who constantly break the laws and constantly whitewash themselves. But we, too, look like suckers trying to negotiate with crime. US-Russia Treaty! And why not Russia-NATO? Deliver to England? Why not? It is possible for spare parts. How do we have cars. Body separately, engine separately. As a result, the car was not sold, but it exists! Then another question. So you can put forward any peace initiative where you will be for peace, and the opponent is against. Suppose an agreement to ban the production of tanks. Tanks are offensive weapons, and we are for peace! It is clear that we will look like fighters for peace, but really, nobody will do it. Therefore, with our contracts, probably only go to the toilet. Ban USA will be in England and France. Prohibit NATO? Again the confrontation, Russia-NATO. What to do? Arm yourself, create your own blocks and stand for world peace! Negotiating is useless. We agreed in the XNUMXth, under Gorbachev, under Putin (at least Ukraine, at least Syria). What result? Yes, no! Only a respite for regrouping. hi

    The United States is a non-negotiable state! They have only one principle - the right of the strongest. They called themselves "exceptional", which means that Jupiter is allowed - bull is not allowed. And all these agreements are just a screen for diverting the eyes. Wanted - signed, didn't want - left request
    It’s time to really look at things and build relationships based on the contractability of the country. And so that they do not screech about threats, violations of rights, democracy and other husks, they will respect us only when they know what they will get in their faces in case of something soldier

    Extra confirmation that you can’t agree on anything with the Americans. They inflate and blame Russia for all sins. After the first violation, it is necessary to break the agreement.
    By the way, the late academician A.I.Savin in 1998 in a note submitted to the Department of Military Programs of the Ministry of Economy of Russia wrote that the United States would withdraw from the ABM Treaty in 2002. Which happened year after year. He was a wise man, he knew their vile nature not by hearsay. They decided that the military potential of Russia was completely undermined and that it was possible not to constrain oneself by fulfilling obligations.

    But one of the problems is that the US Senate Resolution stipulates the ratification of the Treaty, so that the US President should strive to begin negotiations with the Russian Federation no later than one year after the entry into force of the New START Treaty to work out an agreement to eliminate the imbalance between stocks of "non-strategic" ("tactical") nuclear weapons, as well as the provision and reduction of such weapons in verifiable form.
    But our country cannot accept such a wording ... and, therefore, whether the United States is in this agreement is in question.

      If I understand correctly, then the START-3 treaty is not valid?

    What is there to discuss: there will be no agreements with the United States without the Caribbean crisis-2. But for confrontation, you need to transfer the economy to war footing. The goal of the United States is survival at all costs at the expense of anyone. There will be no compromise. Either a pro-American regime or a rogue state. Medium-range missiles in front of and beyond the Urals - that’s right.

    Unless amers can be trusted. In general, this Euros can hardly be trusted. They are saturated with colonialism and roll on it like in the Middle Ages.

    No, Nikolai, it’s not right. Acts and performed by both Russia and the Americans. Whatever ANALitigi wrote, and our colleagues in VO.
    And to believe "Monsieur General" Vildanov is already impossible for several years. For these several years he "burns with a verb" without caring about authenticity. As in this article. About B-1 and about "trident" and everything else. After all, the main thing is to write, to indicate even the article of the Treaty. After all, the bulk of the treaty will not read anyway and will take their word for it.

    If you believe him, then in our Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Defense there are continuous d.b.i.ly and p.r.i.durki. After all, they believe that the United States does not violate strategic agreements, and analysts of all stripes - that they violate ...
    I would put the article MINUS, but the author is not appropriate.

    I apologize, a little off topic .. But at the beginning of the message there is a mention of START-1. An interesting fact about the control during the existence of the previous contract.
    In December 2009, the US Inspection Team of Specialists, which had been conducting inspections at the Votkinsk plant for over 20 years (consisted of 20 people), departed for their homeland. All Americans in the group enjoyed diplomatic immunity. At the factory there was a representation of the American mission.
    The Votkinsk Machine-Building Plant is the head enterprise of the Russian defense industry, where the Topol-M, RS-24 and Bulava ICBMs were assembled.
    Until December 2009 all products fell on the monitors of American observers. Specialists determined the dimensions of the cargo, recorded and saved its image. In addition, Americans had access to a data center. All large-sized wagons in which the rocket can accommodate were subjected to thorough checks by the Americans in the presence of an enterprise specialist.
    At least twice a day, American inspectors, accompanied by company employees, went around the perimeter of the plant to check if there were new gates (undermining))), or whether there were attempts to unauthorized removal of cargo (when dismantling the fence))). Note that Russian military inspectors at similar US enterprises have not worked since 2001 (they may also have been faulty))). It’s good that this clause was not in the new agreement ..

    Since the plant "Hercules" (EMNIP) was closed, so ours left there. This is really not in the new treaty, and this is good. And there are no other conditions unfavorable to our side either. But there are 18 inspections per year on each side, which is also good

    The START treaty also played a role for Russia at a certain historical stage. Our nuclear forces were reduced even without START, for economic reasons. Without hurray patriotism, this cannot be denied. The Americans now understand the reduction in their own way. They do not dispose of the removed warheads, but store them. American tactical nuclear weapons are deployed in NATO countries that are not members of the nuclear club. Take the FRG. Plus, the Americans are developing and already in service with a colossal number of cruise missiles in conventional weapons. Hence their strategies for a disarming first strike. Persistently placed missile defense systems are offensive. systems and everyone understands this. Yes, and the territory contaminated with radiation is not very interesting. The main goal is resources. The entire history of the Anglo-Saxon world is exploitation, and the predatory resources of all other countries for the prosperity of the so-called "golden" billion. All these screens and curtains are about democracy is just fine words. NATO serves as a tool to achieve the goal. American troops in Europe primarily serves to control the independence of European allies. The Pentagon is far from being stupid. All these talking heads ala Psaki, so gramophones. It is very doubtful that the Slavic peoples, it is the peoples who are ready to die for the "democratic values" of their uncle Sam. But the Americans have learned to use the newly minted NATO recruits to the fullest. The territory for the deployment of bases, huge sales markets for both civilian and military products. The same "super cheap" F-35s need to be sold to someone. Logistic routes, oil and gas pipelines, minerals, trade routes are all very important for the prosperity of an "exclusive" nation. Russia is now proactively forming an Arctic grouping, this is where it will be hot in the foreseeable future. The erosion of moral values ​​among Europeans under the American regime. The flows of refugees from the Middle East. All these are links in one chain. Russia, as always, stands on the path of world domination, and her only allies are Army Me and the Fleet. How quickly did yesterday's ATS partners become NATO members? As soon as the Soviet troops were withdrawn. The presence of the American military machine in Europe, Japan in the Middle East, and, in principle, all over the world is a necessity for the survival of the "chosen and exceptional." And count the vassals like Canada, Australia. There is a silver lining, for Russia there is now a chance to become a completely self-sufficient power.
