On June 1, the United States stopped providing Russia with information about its missile arsenal and ballistic missile launches under the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty. This is stated in a statement by the US Department of State.
As noted, such countermeasures were taken after Russia suspended its participation in the INF Treaty. Washington warned Moscow about them in advance.
In particular, this concerns the cessation of the transfer of information to Russia on the status and location of objects subject to the treaty, such as missiles and launchers (nuclear weapons). Russia stopped providing this data back in February 2023.
Meanwhile, the United States continues to provide information on launches of intercontinental ballistic missiles and submarine-launched ballistic missiles in accordance with other agreements.
It is specified that as of June 1, the United States will also stop facilitating inspections on the territory of the state. Washington decided to revoke the existing visas issued to Russian inspectors.
The United States also refuses to provide telemetry information on the launches of intercontinental ballistic missiles and submarine-launched ballistic missiles.
According to the statement, the United States has informed Russia of its readiness to resume fulfilling its obligations under the INF Treaty if the aggressor country returns to compliance.
