Are Russia and America Headed Toward Nuclear War?

We ask a leading Russian military expert.

Therefore, to reiterate, I think that even if the New START Treaty is not extended nothing catastrophic will happen in the military-technical sphere. But something catastrophic will happen to the military-political trust between the United States and Russia. The situation in this area is already very difficult and it will only get worse.
