As the Minister of foreign Affairs of Russia Sergey Lavrov, at the White house, apparently, finally decided not to renew the contract on reduction of strategic offensive arms SNV-3. This is the last document limiting the military power of the two nuclear powers. What threatens the world, the collapse of the international security system — in the material RIA Novosti.
In an interview with reporters, the foreign Minister stressed that to panic because of refusal to prolong start-3 not necessary — Russia is able to guarantee security even without him. However, this agreement was very important. Start-3 was signed by the presidents of Russia and the USA Dmitry Medvedev and Barack Obama on 8 April 2010. The document came into force in February 2011 and expires in 2021-m.
The Russian foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov called impolite ways in which the US is trying to involve China in negotiations on strategic stability.

It was noted that the States also recommend China as soon as possible to meet with Russia to consider further steps for tripartite talks on arms control.

The authors of the report acknowledged that this step was not a violation of the INF Treaty, however hypocritical it is alleged that he supposedly testified about the absence of Russia's intentions to return to compliance with the Treaty", - said the Russian Ministry.
US withdrawal from the Treaty on the elimination of intermediate and shorter-range missiles (INF Treaty) gave himself a free hand against China and the deployment of missiles in Asia, according to the Deputy Director of the Center for comprehensive European and international studies, faculty of world economy and international Affairs NRU HSE, member of the RIAC (Russian international Affairs Council) Dmitry Suslov.

Also, according to him, the statements of former adviser to the US President for homeland security John Bolton on the increasing threats from China are commonplace misrepresentation of the facts.
