In May 2020 the United States announced that it would formally withdraw from the 1992 Treaty on Open Skies, citing the failure of Russia to adhere to the agreement. It had been threatening to do so since at least October 2019.1 The US withdrawal came into effect on 22 November 2020 and added to existing tensions between Russia and the USA and its European allies.2
