Russia Warns Of Global Catastrophe If US Keeps Dismantling Global Arms Control Regime


Russia warned of global catastrophe if Washington keeps dismantling a Global Arms Control Regime.

Speaking at an economic forum in St Petersburg, President Vladimir Putin said Russia is prepared to drop a nuclear weapons agreement treaty with the United States.

He said Washington showed no genuine interest in conducting talks on extending the new start treaty which caps the number of nuclear warheads well below cold war limits.

Vladimir Putin said Russia is prepared to drop the nuclear weapons treaty with the United States if no one feels to extend it.

The treaty was signed by US President Barack Obama and his Russian counterpart Dmitry Medvedev in Prague in 2010 and it expires in 2021.
