Must Read

It is anticipated that the number of nuclear warheads will rise for the first time since the 1990s.

A think group predicts that the number of nuclear weapons globally will grow for the first time since the end of the cold war. The invasion of Ukraine by Russia and western backing for Kyiv has heightened tensions among the nine nuclear-armed governments around the globe. It had been thought that the United Kingdom, France, India, and Pakistan were modernizing their nuclear arsenals.

According to researchers at the Sipri think tank, the global nuclear arsenals have reached their lowest point since the Cold War’s conclusion. An estimated 3,732 warheads were deployed on missiles and planes, and roughly 2,000 were held in a state of high readiness, the vast majority of which belonged to Russia or the United States.
