And the New START nuclear treaty was signed between Barack Obama and Putin in 2010.
On Tuesday Vladimir Putin announced the suspension of participation in the START nuclear treaty.
Putin announced the suspension in a speech to both houses of the Russian parliament, where he accused the West of trying to destroy Russia.
Good job, Joe Biden!
Moscow said on Tuesday that Russia will continue to observe limits on the number of nuclear warheads that can be deployed under the New START treaty despite its decision to suspend participation in the treaty.
President Vladimir Putin announced the freeze during a speech to both houses of the Russian parliament in which he accused the West of trying to destroy Russia.
Later in the day, Putin submitted a draft law on the suspension to the lower house of parliament, the Duma, which will consider it on Wednesday and make an immediate decision, Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin said in a statement.
The draft will then be sent to the upper house of the Federation Council, he said. Grigory Karasin, chairman of the council’s international committee, told the RIA news agency that the body could consider the law on Wednesday.
Under the deal, signed in 2010 and extended until 2026, Moscow and Washington committed to deploy more than 1,550 strategic nuclear warheads and up to 700 long-range missiles and bombers.
