MOSCOW, March 04. /ITAR-TASS/. The US has made a decision to interrupt all military contacts with Russia due to the situation in Ukraine; nevertheless, this will not influence US compliance with the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty with Russia, known as the New START, the former chief of Russia’s strategic nuclear armed forces, Viktor Yesin, told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
In the official’s opinion, the situation in Ukraine can hardly prevent Moscow or Washington from timely informing each other about test launches of their strategic missiles and the sharing of information on the number of deployed missiles and the quantity of nuclear warheads on them, as well as all other information the New START treaty provides for. According to it, the sides shall inform each other on the issues concerned twice a year.
“There have always been and there will always be disagreements between our countries on some issues. However, it is hardly possible that they will strongly influence Russia-US strategic relations”, concluded Yesin.
