Documents written during the cold war prove that the US and NATO broke its promise to Russia limiting NATO expansion (open link below).
Once one side violates its part of the bargain, then in the field of law, that voids either the whole contract or at least the counterpart of the contract corresponding to the violated part.
THIS is why Russia no longer feels bound, either morally or legally. See linked article.
But as if this were not enough, the US illegally violated air space over Syria for years, knowing that Syria was a Russian ally. It was deliberate provocation. 
Americans have gotten used to the idea of the US government being a law unto itself, ie, writing the law as it goes.
Russia is putting its foot down and saying "do you hear us now?"

Russia has deployed one of the deadliest weapons in its arsenal as part of their military action in Syria, according to reports. The mobile multiple rocket launcher - TOS-1A - features thermobaric weapons which can destroy eight city blocks in one strike, causing indiscriminate damage. This comes as Moscow announced that Russian fighter jets hit 40 ISIS targets in Syria since Tuesday morning.

Recent reports indicate Russia is bolstering its arsenal of missiles, submarines and bombers — a move that violates the New START arms treaty. THIS is what we know!
According to the Washington Free Beacon, Russia’s nuclear arsenal how has over 100 nuclear warheads above the limit set by the treaty.
Since the treaty was launched, Russia has deployed 111 new nuclear warheads, bringing its total number of deployed warheads to 1,648. That treaty limit is 1,150 warheads — a number that must be reached in 2018.
Comparatively, the numbers of U.S. nuclear warheads, missiles and bombers have fallen dramatically and are already below the limits set by the treaty. Additionally, the United States has decreased the number of warheads in its deployed nuclear arsenal by 250.
While the United States intends to eliminate heavy bombers and launchers, Russia has launched a strategic nuclear force expansion.
Russian President Vladimir Putin also recently announced a new doctrine that placed priority on nuclear forces.
If this raises concern for you, you are not alone.

Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Ala., chairman of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Strategic Forces, said Russia “is in the business of violating treaties.”
Rogers said Putin has violated several agreements and treaties in the past, and he simply “violates any treaty or agreement that puts limits on capabilities that Mr. Putin and his cronies desire.”
“Russia’s arguable adherence to the New START Treaty just indicates how bad a deal it is for the United States,” he said.
Adm. William Gortney, commander of the U.S. Northern Command, said Wednesday that Russia has read our play book and is “fielding cruise missiles that are very, very accurate, very long range.”
Gortney said these missiles have the ability to reach targets in Canada and the United States. He added that Russia has been participating in war game scenarios recently that simulate cruise missile strikes in Alaska.
This news is serious because it appears Russia has no intention of abiding by New START or any other treaty. We should therefore be building up our military and our arsenals instead of depleting them.
