Questions Remain Over Deadly Russian Explosion as Threat of Nuclear Arms Race Looms

Questions are mounting over last Thursday’s explosion in the White Sea off the northern coast of Russia, which killed at least seven people, mostly nuclear scientists. The blast caused a radiation spike in the surrounding area, and U.S. experts suspect it was caused during a test of a nuclear-powered cruise missile. This comes as concerns are growing over a renewed nuclear arms race between U.S. and Russia following Trump’s withdrawal from the landmark Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty. Earlier this month, Russia’s Foreign Ministry called the INF Treaty “formally dead.”
