"Would like to remind the American colleagues that extension of the Contract on the START is not technical formality which could be executed for few weeks or even even quicker as they, it seems, try to present it. Before the parties are able to start subject discussion of such option, the USA has to fulfill in full the obligations under this agreement and bring number the START into accord with the criteria established by the contract" — told in the MFA. According to department, the USA "fitted" into criteria of the contract only by means of manipulations with figures. "Declared her (the American side. - RNS) the exit to the required indicators is reached not only thanks to real reductions of armaments, but also at the expense of an illegitimate unilateral conclusion from the zaschet under the contract about one hundred strategic offensive arms. It is a serious problem without which settlement consideration of a question of extension of the contract loses meaning" — added to the MFA. The Russian Foreign Ministry also hoped that in Washington realize "all gravity of a situation with the contract on the START and will take the measures necessary for ensuring viability of this major international agreement". The contract on the START was signed on February 5, 2011 and calculated for 10 years with possible extension according to the mutual arrangement of the parties for five years. It provides reduction of nuclear warheads to 1550 units, intercontinental ballistic missiles, ballistic missiles of submarines and heavy bombers — up to 700 units.
