SUMMARY 
 
¶3.  (S) A Working Group Meeting was held at the Russian 
Mission on May 30, 2005, to discuss Russian-proposed S-Series 
Joint Statements that would reduce the inspectable area for 
the Zlatoust SLBM Production Facility (a facility subject to 
Suspect-Site Inspections), and the Kartaly Silo ICBM Base. 
The U.S. Delegation undertook to review both proposals, 
stating that the Zlatoust proposal looked promising, but that 
the Kartaly proposal would be sent to Washington for analysis 
and consideration. 
 
RUSSIA ACCEPTS U.S. SUGGESTION FOR ZLATOUST 
 
¶4.  (S) Fedorchenko opened the meeting and announced that 
Russia decided to make a commitment not to build a rail line 
to structure 8 at Zlatoust, as the United States had 
suggested during JCIC-XXV (REFTEL).  He tabled a new draft 
S-Series JCIC Joint Statement, which included a statement 
that Russia does not plan to build rail lines to structure 8 
(text of draft Joint Statement is in para 8 below), as well 
as a new site diagram dated September 1, 2004.  Singer noted 
that, as a result, it appeared promising that we could reach 
agreement on this site diagram and S-Series JCIC Joint 
Statement during this session. 
 
KARTALY IS CLOSING 
 
¶5.  (S) Fedorchenko stated that Kartaly would soon cease to 
be a Russian strategic forces site, so to ease the work of 
inspectors, Russia was proposing a site diagram with reduced 
boundaries. 
 
¶6.  (S) Fedorchenko tabled a new draft S-Series JCIC Joint 
Statement (text of draft Joint Statement is in para 9 below) 
and a new site diagram, dated March 1, 2002, for Kartaly.  He 
stated that the scale was changed on the new site diagram, 
and that roads and railroads were shown, with each having a 
boundary.  The boundaries for the five structures shown on 
the diagram were the inner walls of the structures. 
Fedorchenko also said the silo training launcher was included 
on the newly-proposed site diagram and he asked that the 
United States respond to this proposal as soon as possible. 
 
¶7.  (S) Singer stated that, if the United States had received 
the new proposal on Kartaly during the intersession, the U.S. 
Delegation might have come prepared with a response.  He said 
the new Kartaly proposal would be sent back to Washington for 
review, to which Fedorchenko replied, "we have time."

               JOINT STATEMENT NUMBER S-(BLANK) 
                On Changes to the Boundary of 
   the Zlatoust Facility Subject to Suspect-Site Inspections 
 
     The Parties, referring to paragraph 19 of Annex J to the 
Memorandum of Understanding on the Establishment of the Data 
Base Relating to the Treaty Between the United States of 
America and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics on the 
Reduction and Limitation of Strategic Offensive Arms of July 
31, 1991, hereinafter referred to as the Treaty, taking into 
account the information with respect to the Zlatoust facility 
subject to suspect-site inspections provided in Annex A to 
this Joint Statement, agree on the following: 
 
     (1)  The new boundary of the Zlatoust facility subject 
to suspect-site inspections shall be the boundary shown on 
the site diagram of the facility dated September 1, 2004, 
which is attached as Annex B to this Joint Statement. 
 
     (2)  The site diagram of the Zlatoust facility subject 
to suspect-site inspections dated January 1, 1995, shall be 
used only for the inspection provided for in paragraph 3 of 
this Joint Statement. 
 
     (3)  The portions of the Zlatoust facility subject to 
suspect-site inspections to be excluded, pursuant to this 
Joint Statement, from within the boundary shown on the site 
diagram of the facility dated January 1, 1995, shall be 
subject to inspection using the appropriate procedures only 
during the first inspection conducted at this facility under 
paragraph 5 of Article XI of the Treaty after the date the 
change to the boundary becomes effective.  Henceforth the 
Russian side does not plan to build rail lines to structure 
No. 8, which, by the dimensions of the access, permits 
passage of items of inspection.  Subsequently the portions to 
be excluded shall not be subject to inspection unless such 
portions are included within the boundary of any inspection 
site. 
 
     (4)  The changes to the boundary of the Zlatoust 
facility subject to suspect-site inspections shall become 
effective on the date specified in the notification provided 
by the Russian Federation in accordance with paragraph 19 of 
Section I of the Protocol on Notifications Relating to the 
Treaty, or on the date such notification is provided by the 
Russian Federation, or on the date of entry into force of 
this Joint Statement, whichever is latest.
