Russia's evolving strategic nuclear deterrent

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

As nuclear deterrence is important to Russia's national security policy and military strategy, the question is to whether this will bring stability to Russian force. This article provides answer to this question in three steps. First is a comparison on the performances of Russian and American Moscow Treaty-compliant forces. Second is a test on the sensitivity of these forces to requirements and lastly, is on to whether the missile defenses affects the balance of deterrence credibility.
