  • Barrels and bullets: The geostrategic significance of Russia’s oil
           and gas exports
    • Authors: <a href="/bio/m-bradshaw">M. Bradshaw</a>; <a href="/bio/r-connolly">R. Connolly</a>
      Abstract: In 1953, US President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned about the hidden costs of what he was to later describe as the “military-industrial complex.” Ike said: “We pay for a single fighter plane with a half million bushels of wheat. We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people.” The leaders of today’s Russia face a twenty-first-century version of this dilemma, weighing the trade-off between spending on guns or butter. Russia’s own defense-industrial complex (known as the oboronnyi-promyshlennyi kompleks, or OPK) has been the recipient of billions of dollars in the past few years, as the state ordered new weapons such as the T-50 PAK-FA fifth-generation fighter aircraft, the Armata main battle tank, new nuclear-powered submarines, and strategic missiles. Should they continue the costly effort to remake their military into one of the most numerous and sophisticated forces in the world? Or should Russia’s leaders instead focus their efforts on investing in health, education, infrastructure, and other areas to help build a more dynamic and competitive economy? The answer to this question will be partially shaped by how much money Russia’s leaders will have to spend; with the crash in the value of oil exports – the unstable pillar of this Eurasian petro-state – what funds can they expect to draw upon? Decision-makers in the Kremlin will also be influenced by their perception of whether Russia faces a hostile geopolitical environment. If the current view prevails, it is possible that Russia’s leaders may choose to maintain military spending even as the economy sinks into stagnation.

  • Putin: The one-man show the West doesn’t understand
    • Authors: <a href="/bio/fiona-hill">Fiona Hill</a>
      Abstract: The West is at an inflection point in its relations with Russia; the stakes for having an accurate understanding of its president, Vladimir Putin, have never been higher. A misreading of this man – now one of the most consequential international political figures and challengers to the US-led world order since the end of the Cold War – could have catastrophic consequences. Russia’s 8,000 nuclear weapons (and the vehicles to deliver them to any point on the globe) underscore the huge risks of not understanding who Putin is, what he wants, how he thinks, and why. Where do his ideas and conceptions come from? How does Putin look at the outside world? Why did he annex Crimea in 2014 and intervene in Syria in 2015? What does he know about the West? What does he think about the United States? These are all critical questions.

  • US–Russian relations: The middle cannot hold
    • Authors: <a href="/bio/s-charap">S. Charap</a>; <a href="/bio/j-shapiro">J. Shapiro</a>
      Abstract: The Obama administration has stated its intention to avoid a new Cold War, but it has also demonstrated little interest in addressing the core issue in the dispute, namely the regional order in post-Soviet Europe and Eurasia. This “middle way” policy has failed. In order to head off a new Cold War, the United States should lead the West in a new approach that eases competition over countries like Ukraine.

  • Russian nuclear forces, 2016
    • Authors: <a href="/bio/hans-m-kristensen">Hans M. Kristensen</a>; <a href="/bio/robert-s-norris">Robert S. Norris</a>
      Abstract: Russia is in the middle of a broad modernization of its strategic and nonstrategic nuclear forces, including some new developments. The authors estimate that as of early 2016, the country had a stockpile of approximately 4500 nuclear warheads assigned for use by long-range strategic launchers and shorter range tactical nuclear forces. In addition, as many as 2800 retired but still largely intact warheads awaited dismantlement, for a total inventory of about 7300. The modernization program reflects the government’s conviction that strategic nuclear forces are indispensible for Russia’s security and status as a great power. Unless a new arms reduction agreement is reached in the near future, the shrinking of Russia’s strategic nuclear arsenal that has characterized the past two decades will likely come to an end, with the force leveling out at around 500 launchers with roughly 2400 assigned warheads. Combined with an increased number of military exercises and operations, as well as occasional explicit nuclear threats against other countries, the modernizations contribute to growing concern abroad about Russian intentions.

  • Blurring the line between nuclear and nonnuclear weapons: Increasing the
           risk of accidental nuclear war?
    • Authors: <a href="/bio/pavel-podvig">Pavel Podvig</a>
      Abstract: In the past few months, there have been a number of provocative events between Russia and the West: Russian jets buzz US warships in the Black Sea. Turkey, a NATO member, shoots down a Russian warplane involved in the Syria conflict. Russian government media talk publicly about turning the United States to ashes. NATO and Russia both reposition military assets and conduct exercises reminiscent of the darkest days of the Cold War. All this raises fear that misplaced bravado and brinksmanship could lead to the use of nuclear weapons. But there is a subtler, easily overlooked trend as well, which could make the situation even worse: a gradual blurring of the line – particularly in Russia – that separates conventional weapons and their delivery systems from their nuclear counterparts. Uncertainty about the actual capability of a weapon system can be a significant factor in managing a conflict, whether political or military. This is probably the calculation behind a number of Russian programs that are particularly vague about their nuclear dimension.

  • Saving nuclear arms control
    • Authors: <a href="/bio/arbatov">A. Arbatov</a>
      Abstract: Despite a great reduction in the number of nuclear arms in the wake of the Cold War, the chance of their use is paradoxically higher than at any time since the tense years of the early 1980s. Recent confrontations between the United States and Russia might be the immediate cause, but the entire arms control system has been headed for a crisis for years. Facing the devastating threat of nuclear war once again, Washington and Moscow must not only unfreeze ties in general but also work together to salvage the hard-wrought gains of nuclear arms control.

  • The checkered operational history of high-temperature gas-cooled reactors
    • Authors: <a href="/bio/m-v-ramana">M. V. Ramana</a>
      Abstract: The high-temperature gas-cooled reactor (HTGR) has long been considered a promising nuclear technology, and several countries are either considering the construction of new HTGRs or pursuing research into the field. In the past, both Germany and the United States spent large amounts of money to design and construct HTGRs, four of which fed electricity into the grid. Examining the performances of these HTGRs offers a useful guide to what one can expect from future HTGRs, if and when more are constructed, and reasons to reject that option altogether.

  • The Rokkasho test: Has Japan learned the lessons of Fukushima?
    • Authors: <a href="/bio/tadahiro-katsuta">Tadahiro Katsuta</a>
      Abstract: After the Fukushima disaster of March 2011, the government of Japan created new regulations for nuclear power and nuclear reprocessing (i.e. the recycling of spent fuel). The new compliance review process deserves credit for closing some safety gaps, and if the owners of the Rokkasho reprocessing plant, a major facility under construction for more than two decades now, implement adequate measures and operate the facility as expected based on the new requirements, the plant’s safety could certainly improve. However, potential risks have thus far gone unaddressed by the new review process, and unless the government deals with these problems, it will not be able to ensure maximum safety.

  • Sonja Schmid
    • Abstract: Sonja Schmid is an associate professor in Science and Technology Studies at Virginia Tech. Her expertise is in the history of technology, science and technology policy, and social studies of risk. Fluent in Russian, she investigates the history and organization of nuclear industries in the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe and studies the way national energy policies, technological choices, and nonproliferation concerns shape each other. In a current project funded by a National Science Foundation CAREER Award, she is investigating the challenges of globalizing nuclear emergency response. She is the author of Producing Power: The Pre-Chernobyl History of the Soviet Nuclear Industry.
