Russia: The US failed to let Russia verify whether the US complied with an arms treaty

The ministry said the U.S. removed 56 Trident II submarine-launched intercontinental ballistic missiles and 41 B-52H strategic bombers from its count of nuclear arsenals after re-equipping them to carry conventional weapons.

But it argued that the U.S. had failed to let Russia verify the move in line with the treaty, and failed to list four land-based missile silos converted for training purposes — a move Russia said didn't conform to the treaty.

Let's not forget that when it suited the US under George W. Bush, the US simply pulled out of the ABM Treaty.
