Better Chances for Treaty

WASHINGTON — U.S. President Barack Obama gained ground in his push for Senate ratification of a stalled nuclear treaty as once-reluctant Republicans signaled a willingness to back the pact with Russia.

Lamar Alexander, the No. 3 Republican in the Senate, said Thursday that he was “wide open” to supporting the treaty if his concerns about modernization of the remaining U.S. nuclear arsenal are addressed. He praised the White House for working with lawmakers.

Alexander told MSNBC television that the administration is “making important steps in the right direction.”

Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry, a Democrat, said in a Senate speech that he was encouraged by the discussions involving Republican lawmakers and the administration. He said he expects a “positive outcome” in the next few days.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
