Anxiety has been mounting around the world concerning Russian president Vladimir Putin's nuclear threats. US president Joe Biden warned that the risk of nuclear "Armageddon" is the highest it has been since the Cuban missile crisis in 1962. This week on The Sunday Debate, we're joined by three experts to understand the realities of nuclear threat, how nuclear strategy has developed in the last 60 years, and whether Russia’s nuclear threats will be deterred.
Andrey Baklitskiy is a Senior Researcher in the WMD Programme at the United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research, Marion Messmer is a Senior Researcher in International Security at Chatham House, and William Alberque is Director of Strategy, Technology and Arms Control for the International Institute for Strategic Studies. Our host for this episode is Josh Glancy, special correspondent for The Sunday Times.
