Russia is the only great military power, which, despite everything, reduces military spending. This was stated by the head of the International Affairs Committee, a deputy from the LDPR faction, Leonid Slutsky, on the basis of parliamentary hearings on the topic of ensuring strategic stability.
The deputy also called the main tasks to ensure global security. In particular, Slutsky spoke of the need for dialogue at the inter-parliamentary level about the danger of the current policy of Washington and its destructive consequences for strategic stability.
“The US is not yet ready for this dialogue, which means that we will conduct it with other, more responsible countries,” said the head of the committee.
In addition, according to Slutsky, it is necessary to strive for the extension of the START-3 Treaty, as well as to develop strategies for the cyber sphere and space, minimizing the risk of unintended conflict.
In conclusion, the parliamentarian stressed that the dialogue with the United States should be maintained even in its current truncated form, and the mechanism for preventing conflict should be strengthened.
