Two scenarios of the start of a nuclear war with the United States were called in Russia

After the election of Trump as president, the United States began to systematically destroy the already fragile architecture of world security, the likelihood of a global nuclear conflict significantly increased.

Academician Aleksey Arbatov, head of the Center for International Security at IMEMO RAS, said that he could cause a full-scale exchange of nuclear strikes. It is reported RIA News".

According to the academician, in the context of relations between Russia and the United States, the most likely is an unintended nuclear conflict, since both sides know that it is impossible to win such a war, and they will not risk consciously unleashing a nuclear conflict.

It should be noted that the opinion of the scientist echoes the opinion of the Deputy Foreign Minister of Russia, Sergey Ryabkov, who believes that with the deterioration of the situation in the field of strategic stability, the risk of a conflict starts increasing contrary to the intentions of the parties.

Alexei Aratov believes that the reasons for the sudden onset of a nuclear war between Russia and the United States may be technical failure of the missile attack warning system, which will be interpreted as a real message about the launch of enemy missiles, or aggravation of a local conflict, which, breaking out in a separate region, will develop into a full-scale nuclear war.

It is difficult to disagree with the academician’s opinion, and US intentions to deploy medium-range systems that will inevitably lead to retaliatory steps on the part of Russia will only increase the likelihood of an unintentional start of the conflict.

    The most likely scenario is simply the need for a "small" victorious nuclear war for the United States, as a sort of test blow to strengthen its shaky economic and political situation in the world, and especially in Europe, in connection with the confrontation with Russia and China . But this will not work with Russia and the Celestial Empire, but in the Middle East, with those who are weaker, even with the same Iran - easily, only a dozen tactical warheads - and there will be an ominous silence in the world for several years - the world will comprehend and knock out “what, why, and how much”, but the first option does not need to be discounted, because they still have many followers of McCain and Bolton, so there is someone to press the red button of the nuclear apocalypse on our land.

      I think you are right about the use of nuclear weapons as such. And it is precisely the Americans who have recently, it seems to me, been just actively looking for an excuse for such an "experiment" in order to intimidate the whole world and preserve their own "hegemony". And just short-range missiles are very suitable for this ..
      As for the possibility of a conflict of nuclear "superpowers", here, most likely, it is precisely a technological failure that comes into account. Especially at a time when the general "digitalization" of everything and everything, we are more and more actions, and tim and responsibility for them, in fact we transfer to the machines, to the so-called artificial intelligence, weapons are not excluded. Moreover, this failure can be either accidental or deliberate, as a result of a cyber attack, for example. Or systems can react just to such a "local" conflict of "not superpowers" ...
      sadly shorter somehow everything ... belay
