Russia says U.S. is increasing nukes in military planning
Andrei Belousov, deputy director of the Foreign Ministryâ€™s Department of Nonproliferation and Arms Control, told the U.N. General Assemblyâ€™s disarmament committee that Russia is â€œespecially concernedâ€ at the Trump administrationâ€™s Nuclear Posture Review.
The policy review, released in early February, provides for â€œthe creation of low-yield nuclear weapons that would lower the threshold of the use of nuclear weapons,â€ Mr. Belousov said. He said it â€œalso envisages a return to the concept of a â€˜limited nuclear war.â€™â€
â€œIn essence, the U.S. military thinking in [the] nuclear field has rolled back a half a century when it was believed that a nuclear war was admissible and could be won,â€ he told the committeeâ€™s session on nuclear weapons.
Mr. Belousov said Russia has repeatedly called for â€œappropriate conditions that would allow us to take practical measures to free the world from nuclear weapons.â€ But he said Moscow must take into account â€œthe existing strategic realities.â€
