Full article: https://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/rus ... -rcna77150A senior Russian diplomat said Moscow had suspended sharing information about its nuclear forces with the United States, including notices about missile tests.
Sergei Ryabkov, Russia's deputy foreign minister, said in remarks carried by news agencies that Moscow had halted all information exchanges with Washington after previously suspending its participation in the last remaining nuclear arms pact with the U.S.
Last month, Russian president Vladimir Putin suspended the New START treaty, saying Russia could not accept U.S. inspections of its nuclear sites under the agreement at a time when Washington and its Nato allies had openly declared Russia’s defeat in Ukraine as their goal.
Moscow emphasized that it was not withdrawing from the pact altogether and would continue to respect the caps on nuclear weapons.
The Russian foreign ministry initially said Moscow would keep notifying the U.S. about planned test launches of its ballistic missiles, but Ryabkov’s statement reflected a change of course.
“There will be no notifications at all,” Ryabkov said when asked if Moscow would also stop issuing notices about planned missile tests.
Goes right along with Putin putting tactical Nuclear misses in Belarus.
