Source: France24

Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed off on legislation extending a key nuclear pact between Russia and the United States by five years, the Kremlin said on Friday.

"Russian President Vladimir Putin signed the federal law 'on the ratification of the extension of the agreement between Russia and the USA'," the Kremlin said in a statement, referring to New START.

"The current federal law enters force on the day of its official publication," the statement said.

The New START treaty is the last remaining arms reduction pact between the former Cold War rivals.

There's a real president in the Oval Office again - and Putin knows it.

In a way, he must be relieved - for having a kleptomaniac loose canon in the White House ended up being a lot more trouble to him than it was worth.

I can hear him now:

"Don't talk to me about about that idiot Trumpski. I gave the son of a shluka everything - and he nothing but trouble!"
