Russia’s actions in Ukraine, large-scale nuclear weapon modernization programs, and arms control violations are destabilizing the security situation in Europe, where Moscow already enjoys a massive advantage in tactical nuclear weapons. Russia holds military exercises and wargames playing out an invasion of Europe which includes simulated nuclear weapon attacks. What are Russian intentions for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization? How do decreasing U.S. nuclear weapon capabilities influence Russia’s thinking about its strategic position?
Join us as Dr. Mark Schneider examines the implications of Russian behavior for Europe.
