 It appears that Washington intends to withdraw from the Open Skies agreement with Russia.  https://www.vox.com/2019/10/9/20906509/open-skies-treaty-trump-russia-cheat 

The Open Skies Treaty allowed the US and Russia to overfly each other's territory in order that there could be mutual assurance that one country or the other wasn't building up forces for attack.  If Washington withdraws from the treaty, which seems in the cards, tensions and uncertainties between the two major nuclear powers will increase.  In no way is this a good thing. 

The American military/security complex wants the tensions to increase, because this makes the orchestrated "Russian Threat" even larger and leads to a larger budget and more profits and power for the US military/security complex.  The military/security complex about which President Eisenhower warned us, to no effect, has been highly successful in dismantling the arms control agreements made between past US and Russian leaders.  This has raised the profits of the US military/security complex at the expense of the security of the world.

On top of this, Washington is currently raising tensions in the Black Sea, arming Ukraine, Georgia, and Romania, countries that border the Black Sea along with Russia, Turkey, and Bulgaria.  The US and its NATO puppets are conducting military exercises in this internal sea that hosts Russia's Crimean naval base.  The Black Sea is Russia's exit to the Mediterranean Sea.
