WASHINGTON. Dec 11 (Interfax) - The future of the New START is in the hands of Washington, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

"February 5, 2021, is the date; until that date everything is in our hands, in the hands of Washington. As I understand, our proposals are on the table, and it is up to Washington to decide," Lavrov said in response to the question whether there is a date after which it will be impossible to extend the New START.
