The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs reacted with irony to the proposal made earlier by the president of the United States, Joe Biden, to start negotiations “immediately” on a new treaty to replace the New Start, a pact between the two countries that limits the number of nuclear weapons and that will expire in 1200.

The agreement limits the number of strategic nuclear weapons, with a maximum of 1.214 warheads and 550 ballistic systems for each of the two countries, on land, sea or air. This is the last remaining disarmament agreement between the two nuclear powers.

“Is this a serious statement or has the White House website been hacked?” a source at the Russian Foreign Ministry told Reuters. “If this is still a serious intention, who exactly do they intend to discuss this with?”

In the note in which he spoke about opening negotiations, Biden warned that any negotiation “requires a partner willing to act in good faith” and mentioned that “the Russia’s brutal and unjustified aggression in Ukraine has destroyed peace in Europe and constitutes an attack on the fundamental principles of the international order.”

“In this context”, according to him, “Russia should show that it is prepared to resume work on nuclear weapons control with the USA”.
