In the new nuclear doctrine of the United States has a clear message for the Russian Federation – mass mediaUncategorized January 10, 2018
The American military complex intends to develop a new nuclear warhead for ballistic missiles, “Trident” to have a modernized deterrent to aggressive Putin’s Russia. This is with reference to an article in the Guardian says the Agency Deutsche Welle.
The adviser informed US President Barack Obama on arms control and non-proliferation of nuclear weapons Joan Wolfsthal, who allegedly had the opportunity to see the final version of the new nuclear doctrine of the country, says the Pentagon plans to modify missiles, sea-based Trident D5 and to equip them with nuclear warheads of low power.
According to him, these plans are based on the assumption that in any conflict with Russia on NATO’s Eastern flank, Moscow is still at an early stage will use tactical nuclear weapons to compensate for their relative weakness in conventional weapons.
The Pentagon says Wolfsthal, believe that Russia will take this step in the calculation that the United States does not want to use nuclear weapons and will go back on their word.

The Guardian writes that the new U.S. doctrine on the part of nuclear weapons “significantly more aggressive” than the position of the country under the Obama administration, which tried to reduce the role of nuclear weapons in the defense system. Wolfsthal said that the initial draft of the document was more radical.
“The people who wrote it, told me that their goal is to send Russia, North Korea and China are a clear deterrent message. There are good, reasonable, but tough warning that any attempt by Russia or North Korea to use nuclear weapons will lead to very serious consequences,” concluded the former Obama adviser.
The document should be published at the end of January 2018.
