The Russian Foreign Ministry exchanged notes with the US Embassy on the completion of internal procedures required for the entry into force of the agreement on the extension of the treaty on measures to further reduce and limit strategic offensive arms (START).
“Accordingly, this agreement entered into force on the same day,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
It is noted that the agreement will be valid until February 5, 2026.
Earlier it was reported that Moscow had notified Washington of the procedures for extending the treaty on the reduction and limitation of strategic offensive arms.
On January 29, Russian leader Vladimir Putin signed a document extending the START Treaty for five years. The head of state called the agreement between the two countries on this issue a step in the right direction.
