VS zegt dat Rusland Nieuw START-verdrag schendt
February 1, 2023 - The U.S. and Russia together still account for about 90% of the world’s nuclear warheads. These were kept in check during the Cold War by a tangle of arms control agreements.
The U.S. has accused Russia of violating the New START treaty, which caps the number of strategic nuclear warheads that the two countries can deploy, saying Moscow is refusing to allow inspection activities on its territory.
Russia says that it is inappropriate to invite the U.S. military to its strategic facilities at the moment – implying the U.S. backing of Ukraine, after Russia’s invasion, was hindering inspections. However, Russia claims it will stick to other New START terms and limitations.
Between the two of them, the U.S. and Russia still account for about 90% of the world’s nuclear warheads.
