On Jan. 28, just over a week after taking office, President Donald Trump got on his first phone call with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
"I would not formulate any positions as of now".
U.S. Senator Susan Collins (R-ME), along with Senators Cory Gardner (R-CO), Jim Inhofe (R-OK), Todd Young (R-IN), Rob Portman (R-OH), Mike Rounds (R-SD), Joni Ernst (R-IA), and Lindsey Graham (R-SC), sent a letter to President Trump urging his Administration to pursue a principled and tough-minded Russian Federation policy, highlighting Russia's aggressive behavior in Ukraine, Syria, and cyberspace. "We had a break in the dialogue on strategic security issues, so we need some kind of updated information on the [the parties'] stances against the backdrop of this break".
If New START is not mutually extended, neither America nor Russian Federation would be limited in their nuclear production, which could trigger a nuclear arms race.

He noted, according to RT.com, that he had met with then president Barack Obama in the Slovenian capital. The most recent escalation of fighting along the "line of contact" in eastern Ukraine should serve as a reminder of Russia's nefarious intentions. On the day after Trump's inauguration, Kremlin spokesperson Dmitri Peskov said symmetrical disarmament between Russian Federation and the United States was "unacceptable". "In this context the deployment of a missile defense system is needed", the expert said.
In the phone call, the Russian leader raised the possibility of reviving talks on a range of disputes and suggested extending New START, the sources said. "The START Treaty marked the limit of the disarmament in the former format". The Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty was concluded in 2010.
Bruce Blair, co-founder of Global Zero, a group dedicated to limiting proliferation, released a statement saying, "The Treaty is also a powerful restraint on Putin's nuclear ambitions".
The director of the Roosevelt Fund of Study of the U.S. at Moscow State University, Yuri Rogulyov, expressed doubt that the United States will abandon the START Treaty.
I take it as a good sign that he's pushing back against Putin in negotiations, whatever the subject.
