«Considering various challenges, the international community is facing in the nuclear sector, the nuclear nonproliferation regime based on the NPT is going through tough times. Nevertheless, it is remarkable that there are still not more than ten nuclear powers. Notwithstanding the concerns of the creeping proliferation of nuclear weapons as expressed by J.F. Kennedy more than five decades ago, we can consider that the NPT, by and large,is fulfilling its functions, albeit with occasional setbacks. While the NPT continues to be the basis of the regime, no potential alternatives for the treaty are likely to be seen in the short run,» maintains one of the winners of the 2018 International School on Global Security, associate professor of the Novosibirsk State University of Economics and Management Gleb Toropchin.
