According to a U.S. State Department document issued on September 1, 2017, Russian Federation had 501 deployed nuclear delivery means and 1,561 deployed warheads, whereas the United States had 660 deployed nuclear delivery means and 1,393 deployed warheads.
"February 5, 2018 marks the date that the treaty's central limits on each country's strategic nuclear arsenal take effect", U.S. State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert said in a statement.
According to the ministry, Russian Federation has reduced its strategic arms down to 527 units of deployed intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs), deployed submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBMs) and deployed heavy bombers, while the warheads on the above-mentioned arms totaled 1,444 units. The first START Treaty, or the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty was a bilateral treaty between the United States of America and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) on the reduction and limitation of strategic offensive arms.

779 deployed and non-deployed ICBM launchers, SLBM launchers, and heavy bombers equipped for nuclear armaments. It had 1,393 warheads on deployed intercontinental ICBMs, SLBMs and deployed heavy bombers, and 800 deployed and nondeployed launchers of ICBMs, SLBMs and heavy bombers that month. To the dismay of some anti-nuclear commentators, Trump called New START "a one-sided deal".
Yet when President Trump called on Congress to "modernize and rebuild our nuclear arsenal" in his State of the Union address last week, he did not mention his administration's rationale: that President Vladimir V. Putin of Russian Federation has accelerated a risky game that the United States must match, even if the price tag soars above $1.2 trillion.
As the U.S. Nuclear Posture Review showed, the MAD doctrine is still very much alive; therefore the discussion of renewing or expanding the START treaty would serve as an ideal opportunity to once again bring up the Strategic Defense Initiative. The new policy calls for expanding USA nuclear capabilities, with an eye on countering Russia's growing nuclear power.

The ministry also reaffirmed Russia's commitment to the treaty and urged to continue the search for solutions to the existing problems around the document.
In Monday's statement, Nauert said the United States "remains committed" to arms control efforts and "will continue to fully implement" New START. "At the same time we point out that the declared achievement of the START parameters by the United States is a result of not only real reductions of weapons, but conversion of some launchers and heavy bombers B-52H, carried out in a way that leaves no chance for Russian Federation to verify if these strategic weapons have been converted to a condition that rules out the use of submarine-launched ballistic submarines Trident-II and nuclear weapons of heavy bombers, as is provided for by Item 3 of Section 1 of Part Three of the Protocol to the treaty".
