US demanded that Russia stop developing new types of weapons


To extend the Treaty on Measures to Further Reduce and Limit Strategic Offensive Arms (START-3), the United States demanded that Russia fulfill several conditions. The requirements were voiced by US special envoy for arms control Marshall Billingsley, as reported by the Washington Times.


According to him, the negotiations should be a "trilateral solution that includes China." Without Beijing’s participation in the negotiations, there will be no new agreement or extension of the old between Moscow and Washington. He said so bluntly that Russia should "bring China to the negotiating table." He specified that if China considers itself a great power, then it is obliged to participate in these negotiations, which will provide "more confidence, more openness, more transparency."

Billingsley emphasized that START-3 "does nothing for the United States regarding concerns about what Russia is doing, which is a series of destabilizing actions outside the <...> treaty." However, he did not specify what was meant.

In his opinion, the previous US administration “agreed on a very weak verification regime”, leaving “loopholes” that Russia has been using all this time. Therefore, "this kind of behavior must be stopped."

Billingsley explained that the US wants to "understand why Russia is so desperate for an extension" of START-3. Moreover, Moscow should explain “why it is in the interests” of the United States.

In addition, the United States insists that Russia cease to develop new types of weapons. Washington “is not going to allow anything to include or exclude”, Russia should “roll back” five new programs, abandoning them.

We are talking about the “Dagger” hypersonic missile system, the Sarmat prospective strategic ICBM of the silo, the “Vanguard” missile system, the Poseidon submarine unmanned aerial vehicle and the Burevestnik intercontinental cruise missile.

Billingsley is sure that Russia still does not have money for this.

Honestly their economy in ruins due to the outbreak of the virus, moreover, their entire budget process depends on high oil prices, which they do not and will not have in the foreseeable future

he summed up.

It must be added that the United States has once again proved its complete lack of desire to extend START-3 by its actions. Washington wants to conclude a tripartite agreement with the participation of the United States, Russia and China. At the same time, the United States carefully does not notice its allies - Britain and France, which also have nuclear potential.

    Well, who needs this, in principle? All these "achievements" from the "competing" several countries are temporary, useless and giving nothing. In addition to fomenting an arms race and the additional danger of someone wanting to, voluntarily or involuntarily, start a war, this does not lead to anything good. The other side inevitably catches up, often overtakes, and vice versa. In addition to the impoverishment of the population, and the increasing danger to the whole world, except for politicians and generals tied up for all this, who are not quite aware of what is happening, “cheers-patriots” and lobbyists from the military-industrial complex, this is hardly necessary to anyone. I'm not talking about a reasonable and maintained balance.

      If for you, Gregory, impoverishment has come (it’s interesting - but where did the loot for tyrnet come from? You don’t have money - you are a beggar!), Then do not equate everyone with yourself. There is tanga - salaries are paid ... especially as those who work for the state - teachers, doctors, workers in factories, electricians, gas workers ... many who! And whoever works for private traders, so yes - more difficult. But no one promised that under capitalism it would be easy! It was only in the USSR that employment was guaranteed to you! Moreover - for parasitism SAZHALI (well, or fined ... first)! So don’t cry, our liar ... "local".
      And as for the “lobbyists from the military-industrial complex”, it’s you, a citizen of an incomprehensible orientation, tell Amame (they will spend 2020 times (!) More on “military needs” in 15 than in Russia - 738 billion against 48,9 billion). And at the same time, less and less money is allocated from the budget for defense in Russia each year, while among AMEREVs it is ALL MORE. So who is "fueling the arms race"? You just don’t need to do lies, Grigory!

      Almost complete. Firstly, all large-scale civilian projects began as military ones. For example - a man’s flight into space. There would be no nuclear confrontation and the need for delivery vehicles - ICBMs, there would be no human flight into space. The military would not need space communications and spy satellites - there would be no civilian communications satellites and geo-ah. There would be no GPS, and GLONASS is also purely military projects. There would be no Internet, which initially had exclusively military purposes! And there would be no Grigory Arkharov in the network.
      And secondly, in the military-industrial complex, thousands of people are paid salaries for which they feed their families. Universities are taught by highly qualified engineers for the military-industrial complex. Those. the more money is invested in the military-industrial complex, the better is the development of scientific, engineering and technology.

    An article by two nuclear proliferation experts (Hans M. Kristensen and Robert S. Norris), published in the UK-based Bulletin Of The Atomic Research in early September 2013, claims that Israel has around 80 nuclear weapons at its disposal warheads

    PS. To extend the Treaty, it is necessary to involve Israel. Otherwise, everything is meaningless. Even if Israel does not have nuclear weapons and delivery vehicles, their show off about the presence of nuclear weapons allows them to be brought into the territory by a third party.

      We can end this discussion and continue to read the article, since there will simply be no agreement either old or new.

    Honestly, their economy is in ruins due to the outbreak of the virus, moreover, their entire budget process depends on high oil prices, which they do not have and will not have in the foreseeable future.

    I told this Billingsley (and not only him) more than once that for the last 20 years the Russians have spit deep on the refrigerator, they are fed by one thought and only she is the common enemy of all of humanity in the USA and its satellites. And they can be defeated only by the emptiness of their stomach, poor medicine for their relatives and devastated villages. There is no way without weapons, otherwise they will take away our wealth - chernozem, forest, tundra, pipelines ...

      Don't you think that with Billingsley a little stuck in the past? The "economic breaker" has long been retired, but the conversations are the same. yes And in general, talking with him is not the best idea, look at the original article, there is a photograph of him.

    I believe the opposite - we need to create new types of weapons. If Russia refuses this, it will be stupid. It is better that America closes all its biological laboratories, it will be much better.
    It was America that created the coronavirus (they had everything under control), and the Chinese stole and something went wrong with them. First infected in China, and then went all over the world. If America did not create this coronavirus, then on the globe everything would be calm.
    Therefore, I believe that it is necessary to create new weapons so that the Americans do not get into their own business.

    Russia, following the United States, will withdraw from the treaty. Let the Americans deal with China themselves. Where they sit down, they get down, and Russia should not follow the US lead.
    This contract is an empty formality. The Americans never performed it.
    Why does Russia need such an agreement ??? The Americans destroyed all the arrangements.

    The Americans really want Russia to unilaterally disarm, which would allow the Americans and their allies to dictate their will to us. But we already passed this in the severe forties of the last century and we will not repeat our mistakes. If everything is to be done honestly, then at the negotiating table on START-3, besides Russia, China and the USA, all US allies possessing nuclear weapons (Great Britain, France, Germany, Israel, Turkey, etc.) should also sit.

    This means that all over the world to have biological laboratories and engage in development is the norm.
    So, building military bases around the world is the norm ...
    So, pulling more and more countries into NATO is the norm ...
    This means that financing and arranging color revolutions is the norm.
    So, use the Fed instead of turning, milling, etc. machine tools - this is the norm ...
    So, to use the UN, IMF, WB as their interest desks is the norm ..
    One reasonable question - do these claimants really think they are already ordering the tune ??

    Yes, everything is simple: just Russia and China no longer consider the United States a great power. What they are really great is in constant lies, arrogance, vanity and shamelessness.
    Well, and so, I personally do not mind if ours will give them our advanced developments - Dagger, Sarmat, Vanguard, Poseidon and Petrel. Send under your own power directly to the Pentagon (well, Poseidon, taking into account its purpose, can be sent to Los Angeles), let them catch it.
