The Russians need to preserve their country and ensure its security, said Russian President Vladimir Putin, commenting on the decision to suspend participation in the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START / START-3).
“We understand what we need to do. And we need to preserve our country, ensure security, strategic stability,” — said he is on the air of the program “Moscow. Kremlin. Putin” on the TV channel “Russia-1”.
According to the President, today, when the West openly declares the strategic defeat of Russia as its goal, such a position is “quite understandable, understandable and logical.” Under these conditions, Putin ruled out the possibility of US inspections of Russian nuclear facilities.
