The Parties, referring to the Treaty Between the United States of America and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics on the Reduction and Limitation of Strategic Offensive Arms of July 31, 1991, hereinafter referred to as the Treaty, confirm that the first stage of an ICBM or SLBM of a type specified in Annex F to the Memorandum of Understanding on the Establishment of the Data Base Relating to the Treaty, hereinafter referred to as the Memorandum of Understanding, that is incorporated into a space launch vehicle is subject to the provisions of the Treaty, and that, for the purposes of the Treaty, such a space launch vehicle is subject to the provisions of the Treaty relating to ICBMs or SLBMs as an ICBM or SLBM of that type.

Pursuant to the authority to agree otherwise, as provided for in the Twenty-eighth Agreed Statement of the Agreed Statements Annex to the Treaty, the Parties shall agree, as appropriate and on a case-by-case basis, within the framework of the Joint Compliance and Inspection Commission, that the existence of a first stage of an ICBM or SLBM that is incorporated into a space launch vehicle, during such a space launch vehicle's maintenance, storage, and transportation, including maintenance, storage, and transportation of such a first stage that is incorporated into a space launch vehicle, located separately from other stages of an ICBM or SLBM, does not result in ICBMs or SLBMs of that type being considered, for the purposes of the Treaty, to be ICBMs or SLBMs that are maintained, stored, and transported in stages.

On the above basis, the Parties agree that the existence of the first stage of an SS-25 ICBM that is incorporated into a space launch vehicle, designated by the Russian Federation as the "Start" space launch vehicle, in a configuration in which the first and second stages of an SS-25 ICBM, together with a new stage, are contained in one section of the launch canister of such a space launch vehicle, and the third stage of an SS-25- ICBM, together with another new stage, is contained in another section of the launch canister of such a space launch vehicle, and its exit as part of the "Start" space launch vehicle from the Votkinsk Machine Building Plant after March 1, 1995, do not result in SS-25 ICBMs thereafter being considered, for the purposes of the Treaty, to be ICBMs that are maintained, stored, and transported in stages, provided that the sections of the launch canister of the "Start" space launch vehicle are maintained, stored, and transported together, solely in this configuration, until the "Start" space launch vehicle is prepared at a space launch facility or test range for launch. The Parties understand that the process of connecting two portions of the "Start" space launch vehicle in final preparation for its launch shall not be considered assembly for the purposes of the Treaty.

The Parties understand that an ICBM or SLBM used to deliver objects into the upper atmosphere or space, including a space launch vehicle that incorporates the first stage of an ICBM or SLBM, but which differs from such a type of ICBM or SLBM in terms of the number of stages, dimensions, type of propellant, launch weight or throw-weight, shall not be considered to be a variant of such a type of ICBM or SLBM or a new type of ICBM or SLBM, provided that such an ICBM or SLBM used for delivering objects into the upper atmosphere or space, including such a space launch vehicle that incorporates the first stage of an ICBM or SLBM, is not flight-tested with a reentry vehicle.

The Parties understand that technical data on space launch vehicles that incorporate the first stage of an ICBM or SLBM shall not be required in Annex F to the Memorandum of Understanding, and that exhibitions of such space launch vehicles shall not be required.

The Parties agree on the provision, in advance, of information on ICBMs or SLBMs used to deliver objects into the upper atmosphere or space, including space launch vehicles that incorporate the first stage of an ICBM or SLBM. Such information shall include technical data, development plans, and photographs or, until such ICBMs and SLBMs, including such space launch vehicles, are available to be photographed, schematic drawings.

The Parties understand that any proposed changes to the telemetry requirements associated with an ICBM or SLBM used for delivering objects into the upper atmosphere or space, including a space launch vehicle that incorporates the first stage of an ICBM or SLBM, will be discussed and, where appropriate, agreed within the framework of the Joint Compliance and Inspection Commission, taking into account the provisions of the Treaty, including the Thirty-first Agreed Statement of the Agreed Statements Annex to the Treaty.

The Parties understand that the Treaty does not prohibit a Party from moving ICBMs or SLBMs used for delivering objects into the upper atmosphere or space, including space launch vehicles that incorporate the first stages of ICBMs or SLBMs, to a space launch facility outside its national territory. ICBMs or SLBMs used for delivering objects into the upper atmosphere or space, including space launch vehicles that incorporate the first stages of ICBMs or SLBMs, located at a space launch facility outside a Party's national territory, shall not be considered to be based at such a facility. The Party conducting such movement shall retain ownership and control of such ICBMs or SLBMs, including such space launch vehicles, as well as their launchers and support equipment.

The Parties further understand that a space launch vehicle that incorporates any stage of an ICBM or SLBM that is not a first stage of an ICBM or SLBM, and does not incorporate the first stage of an ICBM or SLBM, is not subject to the provisions of the Treaty.

The Parties shall discuss and, where appropriate, agree on, within the framework of the Joint Compliance and Inspection Commission, questions relating to ICBMs and SLBMs used for delivering objects into the upper atmosphere or space, including space launch vehicles that incorporate the first stage of an ICBM or SLBM.
