Russian government approves START treaty.

The Russian government approved the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty in the first of three votes, with the count 350 of 450 votes. A huge step towards Barack Obamas goals of a significant reduction in the worlds nuclear arsenal. The two remaining rounds of votes will probably take place at the beginning of the new year.

The US Senate has already approved the treaty, and it comes as no surprise that the russians did the same.

The Russian First Chamber of the National assembly and the Federation council also have to approve the treaty before it´s valid.
