Russia may resume the Russia-US Plutonium Management and Disposition Agreement (PMDA) in case of fulfillment of several conditions. All the necessary conditions are contained in the draft law on the suspension of the agreement with the US, introduced on Monday to the State Duma by Russian President Vladimir Putin. The document is available in the Duma's database.
Among the conditions are a reduction of military infrastructure and the number of the US troops stationed on the territory of NATO member states that joined the alliance after September 1, 2000, to the levels at which they were when the original agreement first entered into force.
The requirements also include the abandonment of the hostile policy of the US towards Russia, which should be carried out with the abolition of the Magnitsky Act of 2012 and the conditions of the Ukraine Freedom Support Act of 2014, which were directed against Russia.
The US is also required to submit a clear plan for irreversible plutonium disposition covered by the PMDA.
Russia signed the Agreement between the Government of the US and the Government of the Russian Federation Concerning the Management and Disposition of Plutonium Designated as no Longer Required for Defense Purposes and Related Cooperation on August 29, 2000. The US side signed the document on September 1, 2000.
