Today in 1991: The United States and the Soviet Union, represented by President George H.W. Bush and General Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev, sign the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, known as START ONE.
It was the first agreement to actually reduce and verify both countries’ stockpiles of nuclear weapons at equal aggregate levels in strategic offensive arms. The Soviet Union dissolved several months later, but Russia and the U.S. met their goals by December, 2001.
