(As of January 1, 2008, as compiled from individual data submissions of the Parties)

The data in this fact sheet comes from the most recent aggregate MOU data exchanged by the Parties no later than 30 days after the expiration of each six-month period following entry into force of the START Treaty. Only the more significant aggregate data is listed here and on the accompanying tables. The data under the "Total, Former USSR Parties" heading was compiled by the U.S. Department of State from the individual totals submitted by these Parties, and is provided for ease of comparison.

Note that all data reflects specific START counting rules. Within tables, a "--" denotes that the entry is not applicable. The complete unclassified MOU data of the Parties is available upon request from the Bureau of Verification, Compliance, and Implementation, U.S. Department of State, Washington, DC 20520.
