In 2016 Russia and the United States continued to implement the 2010 Treaty on Measures for the Further Reduction and Limitation of Strategic Offensive Arms (New START).1 Under the treaty the two parties agreed to limit the number of their deployed strategic nuclear warheads to 1550 each and to limit the number of their deployed strategic missile launchers and heavy bombers equipped for nuclear armaments to 700 each.2 New START contains transparency and verification measures—including semi-annual data exchanges, notifications and up to 18 on-site inspections annually—that have contributed to building mutual confidence between the parties about the size and composition of their respective strategic nuclear forces.3
