HOW CAN RUSSIA NOT TURN INTO PORTHOS IN TIMES OF THE CRISIS OF THE NPT REGIME? ARTICLE BY DR. VLADIMIR ORLOV AND SERGEY SEMENOV ON THE RISKS OF EXPANDING THE «NUCLEAR CLUB» IN «RUSSIA IN GLOBAL AFFAIRS» JOURNAL
January 31, 2023
In January 2023, «Russia in Global Affairs» Journal published the article «The Post-American World and Nuclear Nonproliferation. 20 years with no room for error», written by MGIMO Professor, PIR Center Founder and Director Dr. Vladimir Orlov, and Research Fellow of Nuclear Nonproliferation and Russia Program Sergey Semenov.
The article analyzes scenarios for the development of the situation in the field of nuclear non-proliferation, which can lead to the emergence of new nuclear states on the political map.
The authors focus their attention on the fact that the policy of small nuclear steps is a symptom of the growing conflict in international affairs against the backdrop of the end of five hundred years of domination by the collective West, and under these conditions, attempts to «repair» the crumbling US-centric security architecture are doomed to failure.
