Russian State Duma unanimously approves bill to suspend Russia’s cooperation with New START Treaty

Russia’s State Duma has voted unanimously to suspend Russia’s cooperation with the New START Treaty, which is the U.S. and Russia’s only remaining nuclear arms control agreement.

Update: Russia’s Federation Council has also approved the bill to suspend Russia’s compliance with the treaty.

Vladimir Putin announced that Russia would suspend its participation in the treaty during his state-of-the-nation address to the country’s Federal Assembly on Tuesday, noting that the suspension is not a full withdrawal. He submitted a corresponding bill to parliament on Tuesday evening.
