The United States will no longer provide Russia with information about the status and location of its weapons that were supposed to be provided under the New START treaty.

This was reported in the State Department.

The State Department said that the United States will still continue to provide Moscow with information on launches of intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) and ballistic missiles on submarines (SLBMs), if this is carried out as part of the exercise.

At the same time, Washington will cancel visas for Russian specialists who conducted inspections within the framework of the START, and will not issue new ones. Also, the United States will not provide Russia with telemetry information about the launches of its ICBMs and SLBMs.

The State Department also stated that Moscow's decision to suspend participation in New START is legally null and void, so Russia grossly violates its obligations under the treaty.

"The United States has notified Russia in advance of countermeasures and is ready to work constructively to resume implementation of the New START Treaty," the report says.

We will remind, earlier it was reported that the US State Department said that Russia violated the treaty on the reduction of long-range nuclear weapons by Washington's refusal to allow inspections to the facilities.

In addition, we previously reported that the United States is suspending sharing data with Russia on its strategic nuclear forces following Moscow's decision to suspend its participation in New START on long-range arms reductions.
