A Russian plane will check U.S. compliance with arms control treaties
A Russian plane will check U.S. compliance with arms control treaties, the Russian Defense Ministry's press service announced Monday. "A Russian open-sky mission is expected to arrive on a Tu-154M LK-1 plane at an area designated by U.S. authorities for entry and exit," the ministry said. During a surveillance flight, Russian experts will check U.S. compliance with effective arms control treaties, using permitted on-board surveillance equipment. In compliance with the international open-sky treaty, Russia announced that it would hold the first surveillance flight over U.S. territory this year from June 20-25. The open-sky treaty was signed on March 24, 1992 in Helsinki. It covers the largest territory from the east of Vancouver, Canada across the Northern Hemisphere to Vladivostok, Russia in comparison to other treaties. Since going into effect on January 1, 2002, Russia will be carrying out its third flight over U.S. territory
