Russian Federation claims to have met requirements of the new START Treaty

Moscow and Washington maintain contact through diplomatic channels on the Treaty between the United States of America and the Russian Federation on Measures for the Further Reduction and Limitation of Strategic Offensive Arms, known as the New START, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists while answering a question to comment on the prospects of extending the treaty after 2021.

"The United States completed its reductions and achieved these limits in August 2017" while Russian Federation "has repeatedly stated its commitment to the New START Treaty", Nauert said. The treaty sets February 5 as the deadline.

Over the weekend, the ministry took aim at the newly announced U.S. Nuclear Posture Review, a policy document released on February 2 that lays out the thinking of the Trump administration on nuclear weapons use.

The Russian Foreign Ministry said it now has 527 deployed intercontinental ballistic missiles and strategic bombers and 1,444 strategic nuclear warheads.

Nauert further said that the US had 800 deployed and non-deployed launchers of ICBMs and SLBMs, and heavy bombers.

To the dismay of some anti-nuclear commentators, Trump called New START "a one-sided deal".

With U.S. -Russian relations plummeting to levels not seen since the Cold War, and both countries moving to upgrade their arsenals, the status of the treaty has been closely watched by arms-control experts.

"The transparency and predictability provided by the New START Treaty support these objectives and provide the U".
