Moscow blames US for situation around START

Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov (pictured) in an interview with RIA Novosti blamed the United States for the current tensions around their bilateral Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START).

The official said the halted talks are a result of "the hybrid war" that was "unleashed by the West" against Russia, arguing that Moscow is committed to carrying out the terms of the accord and that it sees the treaty as a tool in "ensuring predictability in relations between the largest nuclear powers."

In November last year, Moscow canceled the talks about the agreement that were supposed to take place in Egypt.
