Bush pulled out of the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty. Putin saw no peacefulness or respect in those moves. Of course, today, we can't go soft on a regime as ruthless as Putin's. Oh, I know, I know.

This treaty complemented another limiting the numbers of strategic missile launchers on both sides. Russia
On March 1 in his state-of-the-nation address, President Putin revealed several new strategic weapons systems that Russia developed after the Bush/Cheney/Bolton administration abrogated the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty, which had been the cornerstone of strategic stability for the previous 30 years.

Such limits were codified in 1972 as the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty. Freezing missile defense also allowed the Soviets to agree to limits on the number of strategic nuclear weapons, as embodied in the agreements of the Strategic Arms Limitations Talks. Yet as Brendan Green and I have described, limits ... Russia

He boasted that Russia is testing a new line of nuclear-capable weapons that, he said, can easily overcome American antimissile defenses.

NSA
The president said that the weapon was developed from 2001 onwards, following President George W. Bush's decision to pull out of a 1972 U.S.-Soviet anti-ballistic missile treaty.

Bush's 2001 decision to withdraw from the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty so that the U.S. could conduct unfettered research on missile defense.
