With the departure of the generation that fought in the Second World War, the probability of a nuclear war became higher, a US political analyst Ariel Cohen said on April 8 in Sunday Evening with Vladimir Soloviev program on Russia-1 TV channel. “The path of escalation between the two nuclear powers may logically lead, firstly, to a limited nuclear exchange, in which several hundred thousand of people can be killed, and then to a massive nuclear strike. And then to a nuclear retaliation,” Cohen said.
According to the US political scientist, the confrontation between Russia and the United States has reached the highest level since the collapse of the USSR.
In February 2018 the United States published a new nuclear doctrine. As Yury Byaly, the Vice President of the Experimental Creative Center, said, the new nuclear doctrine of the US legitimizes their right to carry out a nuclear war. Also, the head of the Strategic Command of the United States of America John Hyten called Russia the only existential threat at the Association of the United States Army’s Air and Missile Defense conference that took place this year.
