MOSCOW — Russian lawmakers have approved an extension of the New START nuclear arms control treaty as Moscow and Washington look to save the last major pact of its kind.

The lower house of parliament, the State Duma, voted unanimously on January 27 to extend the treaty for five years. The pact, signed in 2010 and set to expire next week, limits the numbers of strategic nuclear warheads, missiles, and bombers that Russia and the United States can deploy.

A day earlier, U.S. and Russian officials announced an agreement to extend the accord, which doesn’t require approval from the U.S. Congress.
