While relationships with the United States drastically deteriorated due to a radically changed environment, Putin came out of an historical nuclear security agreement.

“The threat to strategic stability posed by the hostile actions of the U.S. against Russia, and the inability of the U.S. to deliver on the obligation to dispose of excessive weapons plutonium under international treaties,” wrote Putin.
