Back in the 90s: the US intends to re-arrange checks on Russia's nuclear weapons


The US President's special envoy for arms control Marshall Billingsley said that Moscow and Washington are close to extending the START-3 treaty. At the same time, the "freezing" of the strategic arsenals of the United States and Russia should provide for an effective verification mechanism. He wrote about this on his Twitter account on October 21, 2020.


We need to work out and agree on this mechanism, although Russia does not want to take additional measures. But verification is not an addition, but part of any arms control treaty. It's always been like that

- wrote Billingsley.

He specified that Washington will continue negotiations with Moscow in order to convince it that this is a mutually acceptable solution. The US hopes very much that such a mechanism will be created.

Billingsley explained that the Russians allegedly systematically violate previously concluded agreements. Therefore, the Americans intend to monitor Russia's compliance with the new agreements.

Let me add that Russia has historically demanded a verification mechanism. The very idea of ​​a verification mechanism, in fact, is laid down in the documents that Russia proposed to us

Billingsley explained.

In addition, a senior American diplomat said that the future Strategic Arms Control Treaty (START) should already be trilateral and include China. At the same time, he clarified that he had informed the NATO allies about the nuclear missiles deployed by Moscow and Beijing. Why there should not be Great Britain and France in it, he did not explain.

Note that the Americans, speaking of "an effective mechanism" and "it has always been like this," simply want to go back to the 90s of the XNUMXth century, when Russia was weak and something could be imposed on it. At that time, US representatives were at practically every Russian enterprise, one way or another connected with the strategic arsenal and could carry out checks of Russia's nuclear potential. Naturally, Moscow is not delighted with this initiative.

    And on what basis is the United States going to conduct some kind of checks in the Russian Federation, if the United States itself has refused the Russian Federation even an observation flight over the territory of the US ?! Drive all US citizens out of the Russian Federation with kicks, and when you try to approach military targets, shoot them on the spot!

    We have Zircon, Petrel, Vanguard, Poseidon. What are we to worry about? We do not need any agreements with such a weapon! It's just that the Americans know that the Russian authorities will not use this weapon in their family and business. Therefore, they "bullish".

      In the United States, the business remained only with Abramovich. For since 2015, the definition of "friend of Putin" is a criminal sentence with complete confiscation of property.
      The Americans themselves have undermined the loyalty of their agents of influence.

    I wonder why there are still no domestic computers in stores? Why not ban the import and sale of stubs and alcohol from the United States? Why not ban idiotic Pepsi and Coca-Cola? You can also tax brewing brands at 1125%. And the reason for all this is the reluctance of Pepsi and coca, along with a stub, to provide recipes and technologies. And what's stopping you from squeezing Facebook with Twitter? - encryption and security, they say, is not the same? And to run around at eighteen - a fig!

      Why not ban idiotic Coca-Cola Pepsi?

      Why import? We make them. For example, the Lebedyansky Cannery drives Pepsi of its own manufacture. Once a month a bucket of "secret ingredient" will be brought and diluted with domestic juices and water.
      Or should the Americans destroy their aircraft industry, because 40% of aluminum in the United States is imported from China?
      And computers do. Elbrus processor, Taiwanese memory, Belarusian transistors. You don't drive into shooters, but for offices - that's it. With OS Aurora. Not Windows.

    1. The PRC starts negotiations even tomorrow if the United States reduces its nuclear arsenals to the level of the PRC - that says it all.
    2. If the US officials intend to involve the PRC in the treaty, then it is logical to involve other owners of nuclear weapons - Britain, France, Israel, India, Pakistan and necessarily Japan, which is radically revising its military strategy.

    Why do we need START-3? We should increase the number of charges for the immediate destruction of all life on the western borders of Russia in a nuclear fire.
