Russia scraps nine more Topol systems under START-1 treaty


MOSCOW, October 23 (RIA Novosti) - Russia has dismantled another nine outdated Topol mobile missile systems under a major international treaty on strategic arms reductions, the Strategic Missile Forces said in a statement Tuesday.
"In March, May and August we scrapped nine Topol systems at a time [total of 27]," the statement said. "We also scrapped nine such systems between October 8 and 23."
