MOSCOW. FEBRUARY 6. PIR-PRESS. – The Security Index occasional paper series came out with a report “Prospects for nuclear arms control” by Alexey Arbatov

"Denunciation on August 2, 2019 of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF Treaty, dated 1987), initiated by the USA, threatens to cause a ripple effect of the collapse of the entire nuclear weapon control system built over the past half-century. This may lead to the deployment of an uncontrolled multilateral race of nuclear and non-nuclear, offensive and defensive weapon of strategic, medium and tactical range, as well as systems of space and cyber warfare, laser and other "innovative" weapon. As consequence, rising threat of international armed conflicts with their lightning-speed escalation to the global nuclear war, further proliferation of nuclear weapon and gaining access to it by terrorists", – academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Doctor of Historical Sciences. Head of the Center for International Security at the Primakov National Research Institute of World Economy and International Relations (IMEMO). PIR Center Advisory Board member Alexey Arbatov
