21/02/2023: Vladimir Putin announced the suspension of Russia in the New Start Treaty – Nicolas Girard
On 21st February, President Vladimir Putin announced in a speech in front of the Federal Assembly that Russia was suspending its participation in the New Start Treaty. This treaty, which was signed in 2010 between the United States and Russia, aimed at reducing the number of strategic and nuclear weapons in the two countries. According to Russian President Vladimir Putin, Russia wants the nuclear arsenals of NATO members with the atomic weapon (France and the United-Kingdom) to be taken into account. Indeed, President Putin stressed that Russia had to evaluate “the combined strike-force potential of the alliance” due to the strong links between the US and NATO and their strategic cooperation. News talks could be initiated between Russia and NATO nuclear powers to renegotiate the terms of the treaty. On Wednesday 23rd February, Russian State Duma approved the suspension of Russia’s participation in the New Start Treaty.
