The research is aimed at analyzing the military-technical aspects of strategic offensive arms control. By reviewing the nuclear doctrines and the available open-source data on the two countries’ respective nuclear arsenals, the author analyzes the impact of the New START Treaty implementation on the U.S. and Russian nuclear arsenals as well as discusses the potential implication of the two countries’ nuclear forces modernization programs on the future arms control agreements. The paper is structured into four sections, discussing the state and development of Russian and U.S. nuclear forces in 2011-2021, the two countries’ nuclear forces modernization plans and relevant discussions within expert and policymaking communities.

"I think world politics makes sense if we believe in the idea of progress. You know, it seems to me that there are two views of the world: cyclical – everything develops in a circle, there are cycles of peace and war, all states are created and disintegrate – and then, it seems to me, there is no special meaning in international politics. But there is another point of view: everything is spiraling, the world is becoming more humane and stable. And then progress can be considered the meaning. This idea is closer to me," – Andrey Kortunov, Director General of RIAC.

Seriousness, huge expert experience, the desire to share it, the ability to convey information and a little bit of irony - this is our professor Gen. Evgeny Buzhinskiy.

Each of his lectures is a wonderful and very useful hour and a half spent at the institute. It is fortunate to have a teacher who has not only rich theoretical, but also practical knowledge in the field of nonproliferation.

Professor Buzhinskiy, I greatly enjoyed having you as a professor for Modern Arms Control and Disarmament last semester. You always took the time to answer questions and made the subject very engaging. I hope that you had an incredible 70th birthday anniversary!
