Putin Re-Signs Russia-U.S. Arms Treaty

 START will be in force for another 5 years.

President Biden negotiated the first re-signing of the START treaty while serving as vice president in 2010. The renewed treaty was then signed by President Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev. The president made it clear that he was interested in preserving the treaty during his election campaign, and on Friday, Russian President Putin officially signed the treaty’s renewal.

The Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty was first signed by the two countries in 1991. The treaty limits the nuclear arsenals of each country to no more than 1,550 nuclear warheads and 700 missiles and bombers. Had it not be renewed, the START treaty was set to expire this coming week.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For God to work through the relationship between the U.S. and Russia.
  • That U.S. diplomats and officials would have discernment in their foreign interactions.
  • For God to guide the president’s administration in decisions regarding the global community.
