The prevailing Western view of Russia’s Cold War strategic nuclear weapons policy is that it resulted from a two-part interplay between the leaders of the Communist Party and the military. Steven J. Zaloga has found that a third contributor—the Russian defense industry—also played a vital role.

    During the years between the and Nuclear Posture Reviews, U.S.-Russia relations have grown increasingly confrontational. How have Russia's nuclear arsenal and strategy developed over the past eight years? And what do these developments mean for arms control? The Trump Administration has yet to decide the fate of the sole remaining U.S.-Russian nuclear arms control treaty, New START, which expires in February. Among other conditions, it insists that any follow-on nuclear accord with Russia must also include China. But overcoming China's reticence to engage in nuclear-related talks will likely take deft diplomacy, time, and patience.

The New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty between the U.S. and Arms control and strategic nuclear forces book, which was ratified by the Senate inis set to expire in February unless the two parties agree to an extension.

The countries are holding discussions about the future of nuclear arms control. As part of those talks, the Trump administration is pushing to include China in any future agreement, to expand the scope of.

Nuclear arms control is at a crossroads — not because we are approaching the deadline on an extension of the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, but because China’s nuclear.

With President Trump’s decision to pull out of Open Skies, only one nuclear arms control treaty, New START, remains – and it will expire in February.

These new strategic arms are dangerously destabilizing. Modernization also deploys more tactical nukes in conventional forces with the crackpot military doctrine of “escalate to de-escalate.”. Aside from the treaty banning intermediate-range nuclear force (INF) missiles and related unilateral steps, non-strategic nuclear weapons (NSNWs) have remained outside the arms.
