Putin submitted a draft law on suspending the agreement to the State Duma on October 3.

The Federation Council, Russia’s upper house of parliament, unanimously approved at a plenary meeting on Wednesday a law on suspending the Russian-US plutonium disposal agreement.

Russian President Vladimir Putin submitted a draft law on suspending the agreement between Russia and the United States on plutonium disposal to the State Duma on October 3 after signing a relevant decree.

Apart from the direct provisions on suspending the plutonium deal, the draft law lists the conditions for the possible resumption of the accords. Among them is Washington’s cancellation of the Magnitsky Act, all anti-Russian sanctions, compensating for the damage sustained by Moscow and reducing US military infrastructure in NATO countries.
