In this edition of Wilson Center NOW, we are joined by Robert Litwak, Senior Vice President and Director of International Security Studies at the Wilson Center. He discusses Russia’s decision to suspend participation in the New START Treaty, its last nuclear arms treaty with the United States. He also discusses increased nuclear sabre rattling by Russia since the beginning of the conflict in Ukraine and highlights how China’s rapid nuclear arsenal expansion has only increased tensions with the West.
