News from NATO to Russia START Agreement Alert. News headlines and events Last Minute Russia


NATO allies backed US claims that Russia is violating the nuclear arms control treaty known as New START and urged Russia to abide by the terms of the agreement.

NATO allies agree that New START promotes international stability by limiting Russian and US strategic nuclear weapons. For this reason, we note with concern that Russia has not fully complied with its binding obligations under the new START agreement.

NATO’s statement came three days after the US State Department accused Russia of failing to comply with the agreement.

NATO also said that since August last year, Russia has not acted as an intermediary in US inspections under the agreement.

The statement recalled that the failure to comply with the inspections made it difficult for the United States to verify that Russia complied with the agreement and acted within the framework of the agreement.

However, Russia claims to be in compliance with the terms of the treaty. Immediately after the US State Department’s statement on the matter, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters: “We consider it extremely important to continue this agreement.”

Moscow’s administration suspended the checks under the agreement last August, citing travel restrictions imposed by the US and Western countries after the war in Ukraine. However, Moscow said that they continue to comply with the terms of the agreement.

A new agreement on the reduction of strategic offensive arms, known as the New START Treaty, entered into force in 2011 and was extended for another 5 years in 2021. The agreement also places an upper limit on the number of nuclear warheads Russia and the US can have and the number of vehicles, such as missiles and submarines, that will carry them.

In a statement, the NATO Bilateral Consultative Commission invites Russia to comply with all provisions of the agreement and allow inspections on its territory.
