HUMILIATING: Under Joe Biden, America Loses Major Treaty With Russia As World War III Tensions Rise

In a stark Tuesday speech before the Russian people, President Vladimir Putin announced the suspension of the New START nuclear arms treaty, the very last nuclear treaty in effect between the United States and Russia. The Russian leader also announced that new strategic nuclear weapons have been placed on ‘combat duty’ and his nation will resume nuclear testing if the U.S. does.

According to Reuters, Putin told his captive audience, “The elites of the West do not hide their purpose. But they also cannot fail to realize that it is impossible to defeat Russia on the battlefield.” He claimed that the U.S. under President Joe Biden seeks to turn the Russo-Ukrainian War into the next world war.”

During the Russian state-of-the-nation address in Moscow, Putin explained his actions as a response to the U.S. and NATO openly stating the goal of Russia’s defeat in Ukraine.

“They want to inflict a ‘strategic defeat’ on us and try to get to our nuclear facilities at the same time,” he said. “In this context, I have to declare today that Russia is suspending its participation in the Treaty on Strategic Offensive Arms.”


The New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, already scheduled to expire in 2026, was signed by former President Barack Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev in 2010, just four years before Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea, the commonly recognized start of Russia’s conflict with Ukraine.

The treaty limited each nation to a maximum of 1,550 deployed nuclear warheads, 700 deployed missiles, and allows extensive on-site inspection to confirm compliance. The treaty, which was set to expire in 2021, was extended an additional five years by Putin and President Donald Trump.

The Hill reported that since the fall of 2021, Russia has refused to allow inspections of its nuclear arsenal, which paused since 2020 due to COVID. The Kremlin also suspended diplomatic consultations on the treaty.

According to the U.S. State Department, Moscow’s refusal to resume inspections, “prevents the United States from exercising important rights under the treaty and threatens the viability of U.S.-Russian nuclear arms control.”

Putin continued to allege that the U.S. is developing new nuclear weapons and that some in the Biden administration are discussing plans to resume nuclear testing banned under the global test ban since the end of the Cold War.

“… if the United States conducts tests, then we will. No one should have dangerous illusions that global strategic parity can be destroyed,” Putin said. “A week ago, I signed a decree on putting new ground-based strategic systems on combat duty.”

“The elites of the West do not hide their purpose. But they also cannot fail to realize that it is impossible to defeat Russia on the battlefield,” Putin told the Russian people.

The Russian Foreign Ministry posted a full-length video of Putin’s remarks on Twitter.

According to The Hill, Biden’s Secretary of State Antony Blinken criticized Putin’s move as “deeply unfortunate and irresponsible,” telling reporters “we’ll be watching carefully to see what Russia actually does.”

He said that ‘we’ll, of course, make sure that in any event we are postured appropriately for the security of our own country and that of our allies,” and emphasized, “we remain ready to talk about strategic arms limitations at any time with Russia irrespective of anything else going on in the world or in our relationship.”

“I think it matters that we continue to act responsibly in this area,” Blinken said from Greece. “It’s also something the rest of the world expects of us.”
