President Joe Biden
On the previous Monday, Vice President Joe Biden of the United States stated that his administration was prepared to “expeditiously” negotiate a framework to replace New START, which is due to expire in 2026.

Crisis in Ukraine
As a result of the crisis in Ukraine, political tensions have reached levels not seen since the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962. As a result, officials in both Russia and the United States have publicly spoken about the possibility of World War Three breaking out as a result of the fight.

The Ukrainian capital of Kyiv and its Western backers have stated that these allegations are groundless pretexts for an imperialistic-style territorial grab.
