Abstract. In the present article, the issues of weapon reduction between Russia and the U.S. in the light of the oncoming Treaty on the Reduction and Limitation of Strategic Offensive Arms (START I) extension are examined. Regardless of the further development of the situation with a new treaty-making perspectives, the analysis of application experience of such singular document as the START I Treaty appears not only insufficiently valuated, but quite timely, since many of its provisions are used and converted in one form or another during actual negotiations, and may evolve into a new treaty.
