The states which signed this agreement, below referred to as with the Parties
wishing to help mutual openness, enforcement of trust between the Parties and to preserving strategic stability,
declaring the intention to perform on mutual basis of confidence building measure concerning systems of fight against the ballistic missiles which are not strategic ballistic missiles
agreed as follows:
1. The systems falling under action of this agreement are: for the United States of America - "High-rise system of defense of the area of the battlefield" (THAAD) and "The program of Naval Forces for defense on the battlefield against the TVD ballistic missiles", known to other Parties under the same names; for the Russian Federation the C-300B system known in the United States of America as the SA-12 system; for the Republic of Belarus - the C-300B system known in the United States of America as the SA-12 system; for Ukraine - the C-300B system known in the United States of America as the SA-12 system; and other systems as agreed by the parties in the future.
2. The parties carry out initial exchange of information and notifications as it is provided by this agreement not later than in 90 days after entry into force of this agreement as of date of its introduction in force, and also update this information annually if only it is not otherwise agreed. Updating of information is performed as of January 1 every year, and its provision - no later than April 1 every year.
1. Each of the Parties provides to other Parties of the notification on proving grounds and other areas of testing on which launches of interceptor missiles of the systems falling under action of this agreement will be carried out. Notifications on proving grounds and other areas of testing include names of polygons (areas of testing) and specifying of places of their placement. Such notifications are provided or within 30 days after entry into force of this agreement, or not later than 90 days before the first launch of the interceptor missile of the system falling under action of this agreement on each proving ground (around testing).
2. Each of the Parties provides to other Parties the notification on each launch of the interceptor missile of the systems falling under action of this agreement if during such start-up the ballistic rocket target is used. At the same time:
a) in the notification on launch of the interceptor missile are specified the name of the proving ground (the area of testing) on which launch of the interceptor missile will be carried out; type (designation) of the interceptor missile; the planned date of launch of the interceptor missile; planned
point of launch of the interceptor missile (geographical coordinates; for systems of air basing geographical coordinates of projection of the planned point of launch of the interceptor missile to the Earth's surface are specified); the planned point of launch of the ballistic rocket target (geographical coordinates);
b) each notification on launch of the interceptor missile is provided not later than 10 days before the planned date of launch of the interceptor missile and is effective within seven days, since the planned date of this start-up; and
c) if launch of the interceptor missile will not be carried out or not carried out during the specified 7-day period, the party planning carrying out launch of the interceptor missile provides about it the notification not later than in 24 hours after the expiration of the 7-day period. In such notification it is specified that launch of the interceptor missile did not take place, and or new date of start-up since which the new 7-day period is established is reported, or reported that the notification on new date of start-up will be provided according to the procedure specified in the subitem of "b" of this Item.
The either party can organize on voluntary basis for any other Party or any other Parties display of the systems or their components falling under action of this agreement, or observation of their testing. In each case parties concerned beforehand approve the purpose and the organization of such displays and observations.
Each of the Parties provides guarantees that it will not develop the systems falling under action of this agreement in quantities and places so that these systems could create real threat to strategic nuclear forces of other Party. Actions which are used for the purpose of providing such guarantees include:
1. Each of the Parties provides to other Parties in the form and amount approved by the Parties assessment of programs concerning creation, testing and expansion of the ballistic missiles which are not strategic ballistic missiles resisting to this Party.
2. Concerning each of the systems falling under action of this agreement, each of the Parties provides the following information:
a) name, type (designation) and type of basing of system, and also its interceptor missiles, launchers and related radar stations;
b) general concept of action; condition of plans and programs; for the systems which are in stage of testing, in addition - quantity of systems which is planned to be had; information is provided in the form and amount approved by the Parties;
c) class and type of platform of basing:
i) concerning systems of land basing - the number of launchers in division;
ii) concerning systems of sea basing - class and type of each ship, and also the number of launchers by the ship of such class, capable to perform launch of interceptor missiles of each type;
iii) concerning systems of air basing - type of each aircraft, and also the number of interceptor missiles which each aircraft is capable to bear;
d) the number of interceptor missiles of completely loaded launcher.
3. Concerning components of each of the systems falling under action of this agreement, each of the Parties provides the following information:
a) for completely assembled interceptor missile - quantity of steps, length, the maximum diameter, fuel type (firm or liquid), the maximum speed of flight shown during start-up, length and diameter of starting container of the interceptor missile;
b) for the interceptor missile launcher - the maximum number of interceptor missiles of completely loaded launcher; and
c) for radar station - the range of frequencies (in the designations accepted by International union of telecommunication) and the potential specified as value which is not exceeded by the capacity of this radar station. Capacity of radar station means the work of average emitted capacity in watts on the area of the antenna in square meters.
Each of the Parties on voluntary basis can provide any other information or any other notifications which are not specified in other provisions of this agreement. Such information and such notifications are provided on questions, in amount and in terms which each Party determines.
