Nikita Degtyarev for PIR Center on Russia's Preemptive Nuclear Use Debate

ONN Research Consultant Nikita Degtyarev wrote a column for PIR Center, summarising the arguments of those opposing the preventive or any use of nuclear weapons to solve problems unrelated to the issue of Russia's existential survival.

ONN Research Consultant Nikita Degtyarev an op-ed piece for PIR Center on the preemptive nuclear use debate: ''Political, military and humanitarian factors indicate that the preventive use of nuclear weapons will only lead to a catastrophic weakening of Russia, but will not solve the problems facing the country's leadership. It is better for nuclear weapons to remain a deterrent to existential threats, and there are other tools to solve other problems.''
