The US Should Accept Russia’s Proposed Moratorium on Post-INF Missiles
An interesting article regarding arms control posted at defenseone.com on February 13. Makes the case for accepting a Russian proposal for a moratorium on new missile deployments to Europe. Recall that in August 2019 the United States formally withdrew from the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty with Russia because of claims they’d been violating the treaty for years. Now Russia says let’s hold up on moving any new US capabilities into Europe. The United States doesn’t have any new missiles to deploy (yet), and a moratorium wouldn’t prevent developing new missiles. So, is there a down-side to agreeing to the Russian proposal?
