Future of Nuclear Power Development
In the 1990s and later, Russia often launched missiles, as part of a routine training program. After the collapse of the USSR and devastating Perestroika period in the ’90s, Russian deterrence systems were in disarray. Russian military secrets were exported in tons. However, even in such terrible conditions, Russians never allowed themselves to get rid of the weapons of the “last resort” (intercontinental nuclear missiles).
