“No one will know what's going on there”: in the West, they assessed the risk of Russia leaving the Don


US President Donald Trump said that six months later, Washington will withdraw from the Open Skies Treaty if Moscow does not stop violating it. The White House’s decision was not unexpected, but the prospect of Russia leaving DON made many European leaders cringe, Swedish broadcasting organization SVT reported.


DON entered into force in 2002, its participants are more than 30 states. This international treaty provides for observation flights for arms control.

According to the Americans, DON has lost its relevance and is outdated, because they can receive information using a large group of their space satellites. Moreover, the United States does not need to ask permission from Moscow to calmly photograph the territory of Russia.

But for most of the signatories to the DON, things are different. Flights equipped aircraft gave them valuable information. Therefore, Trump's decision is dangerous primarily to the US allies. After all, Russia can do the same - get out of the Don.

After that, a number of European countries whose monitoring capabilities from space are limited will no longer be able to monitor Russia's military activities. So it is European leaders who oppose the US withdrawing from the treaty.

No one will know what is happening there (in Russia)

- consider in the West, assessing the risks.

If Trump keeps his promise, then this will be the third agreement in the framework of the work on disarmament and arms control, which he broke. Now the attention of world leaders is riveted to START III, limiting the nuclear arsenals of Russia and the United States. After all, Trump is not going to extend it if China does not participate in the new version of the agreement.

At the same time, China does not show interest in such an agreement. So under Trump, the United States can manage to get out of four important treaties that affect international security and stability.

      Moscow has repeatedly denied allegations of violation of the DON, pointing, in turn, to non-compliance with its terms by the American side. Moreover, as Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov previously noted, Russia is not going to react to the US withdrawing from the treaty in a mirror and will not denounce the agreement. - writes RT.

      So, “beloved” West, don’t worry, as everyone knew about us, you will so ...

        "No one will know what is happening there (in Russia)," they say in the West, assessing the risks.

        And no one in the West will know how Washington / Pentagon will actually manipulate the national security of the Washington Regional Committee countries in the interests of the United States. And what strategic misinformation is in the colonial interests only for the world hegemon - i.e. only for the USA itself - they will receive about the Russian Federation from the Pentagon / Washington.

          In this regard, they took a pause at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation to consider the most appropriate and effective answer.
          Unfortunately, there has already been “no provocation” in history, what it will lead to - of course, gaining time - may be relevant for our generation ...
          As for me, since when the Americans destroyed the first pillar of security, it was necessary to immediately accuse the Americans of treachery and destroy all the rest, and to drive the Americans in three necks from the country. All fulfill the contract or nothing. But we went asymmetry, created hypersonic missiles. Let us wait that this time they will come up with an asymmetric one, because it’s too late to destroy all the other pillars, soon “everything will be destroyed for us”, and we need to adapt to the new reality ...

    Americans do not imagine themselves as catching up. As soon as Russia began to use a more modern aircraft than theirs for flights over the United States, then there was a desire to break the Don. The damage to thinking is obvious: if we don’t have this, then you should not have it.
