After Cold War, global nuclear arsenals are likely to increase, think tank

ISLAMABAD, June 30 (Alliance News): For the first time in years since the end of the Cold War, the leading think tank on global conflicts and the arms race has raised concerns about the proliferation of global nuclear weapons, saying the dangers of using such weapons are even greater decades later.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and Western support for Kyiv have led to the world’s 9 nuclear weapons, according to a new research report by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SPRI) think tank, according to Reuters. It has increased tensions and tensions between the armed states.

The report says that although the number of nuclear weapons decreased slightly between January 2021 and January 2022, the purchase and sale of military equipment for the first time in decades would have taken place if immediate action had not been taken by the nuclear powers. It may begin to grow globally.

Wolfred Vaughan, director of the Spray’s Mass Destruction Weapons Program, said in the think tank Airbook 2022 that all states with nuclear weapons are increasing or upgrading their weapons, and that most nuclear weapons States are modernizing and accelerating the role of nuclear weapons in their military strategy.

‘This is a very disturbing trend’ Just three days after Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine, Russian President Vladimir Putin placed Russia’s nuclear weapons on high alert, with Russia calling its attack on Ukraine a “special military operation.”

Vladimir Putin also threatened countries that stood in Russia’s way with “serious and terrible consequences” that you have never seen in your entire history.

Russia has the world’s largest stockpile of nuclear weapons with a total of 5,977 warheads, about 550 more than the United States has.

Both countries have more than 90% of the world’s warheads.

According to the think tank, China has an estimated 300 missile launch facilities in the middle of its expansion program.

Spree said the global number of nuclear warheads had dropped to 12,705 in January 2022 from 13,080 in January 2021.

An estimated 3,732 warheads were fitted with missiles and warplanes, and about 2,000 warheads were placed in high alert positions. Almost all of the 2,000 warheads placed in high alert positions belonged to Russia. Or was from America.

The chairman of the Super Board and former Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lفوfven said that relations between the world’s major powers have become more strained at a time when humanity and our world are facing serious and major common challenges. This can only be done with global cooperation.
