Responding to Russian Noncompliance with Nuclear Arms Control Agreements
MetadataShow full item record
This paper reports on an investigation of Russian noncompliance with nuclear arms control agreements. It discusses three examples: the Presidential Nuclear Initiatives in 1991-1992, particularly with respect to non-strategic nuclear forces; the Budapest Memorandum concluded with Ukraine in 1994; and the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty. The paper considers possible explanations for Russian noncompliance with the INF Treaty, including financial and strategic advantages in developing and testing intermediate-range ground-launched cruise missiles (GLCMs). The paper examines the prospects for Russiaﾒs acknowledgment of its violation and return to compliance with the INF Treaty.
