Russia informs its partners of its decision to withdraw from the Open Skies Treaty on December 18, according to a statement issued by the Russian Foreign Ministry, provoking a backlash from Britain, NATO and the European Union who regretted this decision.

The Kremlin announced earlier this month that the US decision to withdraw from the Open Skies Treaty, which allows unmanned aerial vehicles to fly over countries that have signed the agreement, "has significantly upset the balance of interests." between the member states that have signed the treaty forcing Russia to withdraw from it.

Moscow hoped that US President Joe Biden would reconsider his predecessor's decision. But the Biden government has not changed its stance, accusing Russia of violating the treaty, which Moscow denies.

Moscow announced its plans to withdraw from the treaty in January, and the government referred the matter to parliament last month to ratify the decision to withdraw from the treaty.

British Foreign Secretary Dominique Raab said today that the United Kingdom and its NATO allies had expressed frustration with Russia's decision to withdraw from the Open Skies Treaty.

"Russia has failed to act constructively on the treaty and has not fully complied," Raab said in a Twitter post.

The European Union (EU) has expressed regret over Russia's decision to withdraw from the Open Skies Treaty and intends to look into the possible consequences. This is stated in a statement issued by the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Josep Borrell, on the occasion of Russia's decision.

"The announcement by the Russian Federation of its withdrawal from the Open Skies Treaty is regrettable and will have a devastating effect on the global armaments control architecture," the statement said, adding that "the European Union will study the consequences may make that decision for its own safety and the safety of its partners ".
