Putin signs decree suspending Russia's deal on plutonium disposal over hostile US actions
Published time: 3 Oct, 2016
Russia has suspended a post-Cold War deal with the US on disposal of plutonium from decommissioned nuclear warheads. The decision was explained by “the hostile actions of the US”
against Russia and may be reversed, if such actions are stopped.
A decree signed by Russian President Vladimir Putin cites “the radical change in the environment, a threat to strategic stability posed by the hostile actions of the US against Russia, and the inability of the US to deliver on the obligation to dispose of excessive weapons plutonium under international treaties, as well as the need to take swift action to defend Russian security
” as justification for suspending the deal.
While Russia suspended the plutonium reprocessing deal, it stressed that the Russian fissile material, which was subject to it, would not be used for any military purpose, be it production of new weapons or research.https://www.rt.com/news/361411-russia-suspend-plutonium-deal/

“Extremist groups will continue to exploit the vacuums that are there in Syria to expand their operations
, which could include attacks against Russian interests, perhaps even Russian cities
. Russia will continue to send troops home in body bags, and will continue to lose resources, perhaps even aircraft
,” US State Department spokesperson John Kirby told reporters at Wednesday’s press briefing, adding that if the war in Syria continues “more Russian lives will be lost, more Russian aircraft will be shot down.”
Considering, as I've already pointed out, & recent events in Syria have proven, that the U.S are backing Islamic State in Syria.
John Kirby here has litterally
threatened Russia with ISIS attacks on home soil.
This is true U.S foreign policy under the Democrats.
