Sergey Zheleznyak: the United States is deliberately dragging out time in order to disrupt the agreements

“The United States is deliberately dragging out time in order to disrupt the agreements existing within the framework of START-3, trying in the period remaining until the end of the Treaty to come up with some additional ways to verify the agreement and to blur the essence of the agreements. The main thing that hinders our American opponents is the desire to dominate the world arena and, of course, in the nuclear sphere. Washington is accustomed to speaking to everyone in the language of threats and ultimatums. Russia remains a country that does not allow a dialogue with itself in such a tone. ” This opinion was expressed by a member of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs Sergei Zheleznyak, commenting on the statement of the US President’s Special Representative for Arms Control Marshall Billingsley.

According to the deputy: “As you know, any international agreement, especially concerning the mutual reduction of nuclear arsenals, includes methods of monitoring compliance with this process. With today’s technical capabilities, including space surveillance, it is almost impossible to hide the fact of production or testing of such weapons from reconnaissance surveillance satellites. We have never violated our obligations and invite our partners in the Treaty to follow the agreements reached in the interests of peace and stability. At the same time, the Washington fighters continue to cherish the idea of ​​untie their hands and, after the tinsel from the words about the so-called new effective verification system, eliminate the agreements and start large-scale production of nuclear weapons. ”

“Our country is making every possible diplomatic effort to convince American opponents of the need to extend START-3, after which it is necessary to thoroughly and thoroughly condemn further joint steps to maintain nuclear parity. It is also obvious to us that there will be no progress in relation to the START-3 Treaty before the US presidential elections. All the talk about it to the American public is just a pre-election move of candidates. “
