This is a crucial failure, because START III and all progress beyond depends on greater transparency. It is crucial also because in Russia and other countries, the reported lack of effective accountancy and control of fissile materials leave very real risks of nuclear smuggling and theft. There is no way of knowing from the outside whether nuclear materials were illegally removed in the aftermath of the collapse of the Soviet Union. Although the USA has since established joint programmes with the facilities they judged most vulnerable to nuclear theft, the international community cannot be confident that material is not being stolen.
On this point, at least, the news is promising. Both the new prime minister of Russia, and the new chairman of the Defence Committee of the State Duma, favour ratification of START II. The chances are good that the Treaty will enter into force by the end of the year. The number of deployed strategic warheads in Russia, also currently in the region of 6000, is likely to continue to decrease irrespective of the eventual fate of START II. In July the Security Council of Russia, chaired by President Yeltsin, approved a programme for the development of Russia's strategic nuclear forces through 2010.
