Russia to suspend nuclear treaty with US
Vladimir Putin, President of Russia, has announced his country's intention to suspend a key nuclear treaty with the United States of America.
The New START nuclear arms reduction treaty was signed in 2010 by then-US President Barack Obama and his Russian counterpart, Dmitry Medvedev.
The agreement's goal was to limit the number of nuclear warheads that could be deployed by both countries. The treaty also requires both countries to reduce the number of strategic nuclear missile launchers they have by half.
With relations between Russia and the United States deteriorating as a result of the former's invasion of Ukraine, President Putin has announced that Russia will withdraw from the treaty, according to ABC News.
However, the Russian leader clarified that the country was not withdrawing completely from the agreement, but that Russia must be prepared to resume nuclear weapons tests if the US does the same.
Putin slammed Western countries for their indirect participation in the Ukraine conflict during his state-of-the-union address, which aired on Tuesday.
He claims that the Western "elites" sparked the war by "releasing the genie from the bottle" ten years ago and rejecting all attempts at reconciliation.
The term "emergency" refers to the need for a rapid response to an emergency situation. They intend to escalate the local conflict into a global conflict.
"They are the ones who started the war. And we're going to use force to put an end to it," he said.
He also chastised the international community for attempting to suffocate Russia's economy through harsh sanctions.
The term "electronic" refers to the process of converting an electronic device into a physical device that can be used to perform a specific task.
Biden also plans to visit Poland, Ukraine's neighbor, where he will meet with Polish President Andrzej Duda and other eastern allies to discuss how to further support the Ukrainian people.
This week marks the one-year anniversary of Russia's invasion of Ukraine, which began on February 24, 2022.
The year-long conflict had resulted in the deaths of several people, the displacement of Ukrainian citizens and residents, and the destruction of property.
