The reason Dmitri Litovkin said, Washington’s delay in extending the START III treaty, may lie in continuing work there to produce absolute weapons.
According to the arms-writer and military commentator at Russias TASS agency, the United States may be able to manufacture such weapons before 2027.
“By that moment, US strategic nuclear forces must acquire new combat capabilities and advantages. Perhaps precisely for this reason, Washington is procrastinating and procrastinating on the new treaty, and is trying to build an absolute weapon outside the framework of any obligations,” Litovkin said.
In December 2019, the Russian academic Alexei Arbatov, head of the Center for International Security at the Institute of World Economy and International Relations of the Russian Academy of Sciences, said that the United States’ nuclear triad looks higher than it is in Russia. In September of the same year, Arbatov said that the most likely scenarios for the start of a nuclear war between the United States and Russia are a response to a false alarm or exacerbation of a limited conflict.
