Russia's lower house of parliament gave preliminary approval Friday to a U.S.-Russian arms treaty, but decided to delay the final vote until next month.
President Dmitry Medvedev on Thursday welcomed the U.S. Senate's decision to ratify a landmark U.S.-Russian nuclear arms control treaty, but Russian legislators said they need to study a resolution accompanying the document before following suit.
Sen. Jon Kyl, Arizona Republican, dropped a nuke on Tuesday when he said the new Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START) should not be ratified during the lame-duck session of Congress. Democrats swiftly returned fire; it's curious what their rush is.
Konstantin Kosachev, the head of the State Duma's foreign affairs committee, said the full ratification could happen next month "at the earliest," as the Russian legislators would need to formulate their response to the Senate legislation in a ratification bill.
