In 2018 the slowly collapsing Russian–US nuclear arms control and disarmament agenda was close to losing another key pillar. In October, the USA announced that it would formally withdraw from the 1987 Treaty on the Elimination of Intermediate-Range and Shorter-Range Missiles (INF Treaty) if Russia failed to promptly address US compliance concerns.1 The year ended with growing pessimism that neither party would take steps to resolve mutual accusations of INF Treaty non-compliance and preserve the agreement. There were more positive developments relating to Russia and the USA completing the implementation of the 2010 Treaty on Measures for the Further Reduction and Limitation of Strategic Offensive Arms (New START) by the specified deadline.2 However, the prospects for sustaining this progress by negotiating deeper reductions in deployed strategic nuclear forces beyond those mandated by New START seemed remote. This section describes developments with regard to the INF Treaty and New START in 2018.
