Russia’s New Nukes

March 14, 2018

Episode Notes:

In the wake of the Trump administration’s Nuclear Posture Review that proposed two new low-yield nuclear warheads, Russia appears to be taking the opposite tack with their nuclear arsenal. President Putin announced earlier this month that Russia will be developing new strategic capabilities. Jason talks about this development with Jeff Edmonds, a Research Scientist at CNA and a former Director for Russia on the National Security Council.
