The likelihood that the United States actually prepare for the first in nearly 30 years of nuclear testing, big. Such was the evaluation given by the expert of the Russian Institute for strategic studies (RISS), Sergei Ivanov, reports RIA Novosti.
According to the expert, this goes in line with the policy of the administration of Donald trump. Her attitude to the Treaty on comprehensive ban of nuclear tests (CTBT) is poor largely because of the United States he joined in full force (not yet ratified).
As noted Ermakov, in American military circles have long said that nuclear weapons testing is necessary because computer simulations can not completely help to solve problems of modernization of the nuclear Arsenal.
Earlier, the Washington Post reported that this issue was raised last Friday at a meeting of heads of the Supreme bodies of national security. The meeting was held after the White house announced a secret nuclear tests of low power, which allegedly carried out by Russia and China. Evidence of testing was not presented.
