Expert: Moscow will extend START 3, but on condition that the Americans fulfill a number of requirements

36
Moscow will extend the START-3 agreement if the Americans fulfill several requirements, including the refusal to deploy missile defense systems near Russian borders and the withdrawal of tactical nuclear weapons from Europe leads RIA News the words of a member of the Public Council under the Ministry of Defense, chief editor of the magazine "National Defense" Igor Korotchenko.



Earlier, the American media, citing sources at the White House, reported that “the Barack Obama administration is considering the possibility of offering Russia to extend the agreement on measures to further reduce and limit strategic offensive arms (START-3) for 5 years.”

“Negotiations on the further reduction of nuclear arsenals will be conducted by Moscow in the implementation of the three most important points. The first point: the complete withdrawal of American tactical nuclear weapons from Europe to the United States. Second, during negotiations, a total offset of the nuclear potentials of the United States, Great Britain and France on the one hand, and the Russian Federation on the other, is necessary. The third point is that Americans must sign a legally binding agreement on limiting the deployment of their missile defense systems affecting the global strategic balance ",
said a Russian expert.

According to him, "in case of refusal to fulfill these three points, there can be no talk of reducing the Russian nuclear potential."

At the same time, according to Korotchenko, “it must be borne in mind that for the United States, the value of nuclear weapons in recent decades has been steadily declining due to the fact that new high-precision non-nuclear weapons systems are being adopted, the accuracy of which provides the same effect, which nuclear weapons. "

“The United States in this segment of weapons have a significant advantage over Russia. Moreover, they have created the command of an instant global strike - that is, the infrastructure has been created and is being actively saturated with these high-precision means, which, within the concept of a global strike, already after 30-40 minutes after the corresponding decision of the President of the United States is ready to strike with non-nuclear precision weapons at any point of the globe, ”he noted.

The expert stressed that “for Russia, nuclear weapons are the cornerstone in ensuring national security and maintaining strategic parity in the world, therefore, the leadership of the Russian Federation will decide the future of further reductions in nuclear weapons, focusing on national interests, not mythical human values” .

“As for the extension of the term of the current START-3 treaty, Moscow will decide this issue after a comprehensive analysis of the decisions that were made at the Warsaw NATO summit and assessing their impact on the military security of the Russian Federation,” Korotchenko concluded.

            Never before has a single world power considering itself a hegemon left the world stage of its own free will (Rome and that barbarians destroyed) So with the United States. Peacefully, this will not end here. The only question is how much it will cost (I mean not only money) who will pay for it and when all this will enter the active phase (it will be obvious to the whole world).

          It is absolutely true, and as one expert said, in the event of a conflict, Russia will hit the headquarters, and therefore the United States.

        A contract is a transaction between two or more parties. You need to bargain and promote your interests. I don’t give a damn about “mythical universal values”. They are for razvodilova and invented.

      The United States will not accept any of the proposed conditions. Especially three at once. There is a ritual shattering, and a global war is being prepared. The subject of this trade is history. It’s a kind of preparation for the future, so that later on the mattresses will PR themselves as peacekeepers who stood for peace until the last breath. Counter offers slightly spoil their picture.

      You are right, but if you would say so bluntly, "There is nothing to talk about with you, Yankees." then one could blame the Russian Federation for aggressiveness and inciting paranoia, etc., on the contrary, it is difficult to do this without putting yourself in a stupid position.

      begs for these "several requirements" - one more, namely - restrictions on missile defense systems themselves and linking them to START-3. No other way...

    The START-3 treaty is only necessary in certain circumstances!
    If the circumstances are not determined and enshrined legally and at the state level, then the START-3 Treaty will face the fate of its "older brothers"!

    it’s tough, however, but the international situation dictates, and we didn’t start it all ... the Yankees will obviously stubbornly, but will have to agree to these conditions, because they have a mess in bins, including those with nuclear potential, and now in Europe there’s a glove box present, in short, do not throw, everywhere a wedge ...

      Sign not sign, when was it that the United States would stick to its word? At the slightest opportunity, they violate all agreements and by any means try to achieve their goals. Since they imagined themselves to be celestials, they do not consider the word given to some "barbarians", something indestructible. Trying to come to an agreement with mattress toppers and tilt them towards common sense is really like throwing pearls in front of pigs.

      This is not empty talk, this is a PR move. The Americans and NATO are trying to drive Russia into a corner. We say that we offer Russia peaceful conditions for coexistence, but Russia refuses. But in fact, if the French tried to show independence, then the British are completely dependent on nuclear weapons and carriers from the USA. I would not be surprised that the keys to the English nuclear nuclear case are in American hands.

Korea. out, they say even the Maori in the Pacific Ocean are horrible as bloodthirsty. they are building a missile defense against them. well, how will the Maori build a "sky boat", and the poor Geyropeans have nothing to defend themselves with. woe sad

    "Without a sucker and life is bad." START - 1 - Humpbacked; START - 2 - Benya; START - 3 who will renew ??? Black decided to promote himself before leaving, like, look what kind of peacemaker I am ready to cut, but Moscow does not want to. Of course, for a simple euro and a mattress layman, Moscow will be exposed as a nuclear threat to world peace, and mattresses as a rescuer of the whole world from Russia. The worst thing is that no one will delve into this alignment, the black one knows that Moscow will put forward conditions that are not feasible for NATO, which means that all this hype is played to justify future aggressive Mattress gestures towards Russia.

      I also forgot about the SORT - in 2002 we signed it.
      By the way, START-2 did not enter into force.

    Moscow will extend START-3 treaty if Americans fulfill several requirements, including refusal to deploy missile defense systems near Russian borders and withdrawal of tactical nuclear weapons from Europe

    This is certainly a wonderful position, but most likely a formal refusal to extend the START-3 extension will follow. Meanwhile (this is my private opinion), Russia needs to decide on America, withdrawing from the treaty without conditions, guided by the highest interests of national security ... Yes, and changing relations with the United States and the attitude of the USA + NATO towards Russia is possible only by becoming more aggressive and decisive, while unconditionally dictating his conditions at the negotiations, intimidating to complete insomnia. Yes, this is not entirely diplomatic, but what we are losing, it’s all the same, sooner or later to be a war, and I don’t want to repeat June 41 ...

    The demands on the United States are absolutely rational. The main thing is that our authorities do not show "political flexibility" again and do not abandon them.

    What Korotchenko is certainly right in is that for the United States the importance of nuclear weapons is declining, and for us such weapons are a very, very convincing argument.
    What I disagree with with Korotchenko is his peremptory character: "Moscow will extend START-3 treaty, if ... "These" ifs "are very, very many, and the first of them is national security!

    History has long been "screaming" that the Anglo-Saxons have always been our enemies, and at the genetic level. They have always pursued a policy of destroying Russia
    In principle, Russia is denied the right to exist as a state. And the Kremlin has long understood that our Western partners, the Anglo-Saxons, are our implacable enemies. It was possible to reconcile with them for a short time, when the Third Reich was strong. And now, if only an invasion of aliens will occur on Earth. And then our temporary earthly allies will try to conclude a separate treaty against Russia with space aliens. They have such a scorpion character. (Vitaly Chumakov wrote Yesterday 17:02
    "A sure way to besiege NATO's aggressive intentions against Russia")


    The media of the pro-American media directly say this, that Obama wants to reduce Russia's nuclear stockpile and give an example of a statement from Canada:
    Slowly but surely, the Americans are squeezing the "nuclear club" out of Russia's weakening hands. After the ratification of the START-3 treaty on the reduction of strategic nuclear weapons, Obama intends to come to grips with tactical nuclear arsenals (meaning Russia)
