President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin proposed that Russia and the United States extend their New START arms control treaty for another year, Reuters reports.

With the treaty expiring next February, Putin suggested extending it without imposing any conditions.

In this regard, I propose... extending the current treaty without any conditions for at least a year so that meaningful negotiations can be conducted on all the parametres of the problems...” he said.

It is worth noting that the New START, signed back in 2010, limits the numbers of strategic nuclear warheads, missiles, and bombers that both countries can deploy.

ICBM is a strategic guided ballistic missile with a range of over 5,500 km. Such weapons are designed to destroy objects located at great distances and on distant continents.
