Concerns about global security and the possibility of a new nuclear arms race have been raised by Russia’s creation of a specialist submarine division equipped with nuclear-capable Poseidon torpedoes.
Russia’s creation of a special-purpose submarine division carrying nuclear-capable Poseidon torpedoes is a concerning development for global security. The Poseidon is believed to be an unmanned torpedo that can travel thousands of kilometers, and it is designed to evade detection and deliver a devastating nuclear payload. Russia’s production of the torpedoes and the formation of a specialized submarine division suggest that it sees the Poseidon as a critical component of its strategic nuclear arsenal. This development is likely to increase tensions between Russia and other nations and could prompt a new nuclear arms race. The international community should closely monitor Russia’s actions in this regard and work to prevent further proliferation of nuclear weapons.
