ELN Policy Fellow Katarzyna Kubiak talks to Deutsche Welle about the INF crisis.
As most of the treaties that formed the core of the arms control system are either gone or being undermined, Russia and the United States no longer want to lead by example by carrying the bilateral burden of disarmament.
Independent expert Dmitry Stefanovich argues that the Helsinki Summit could herald the beginning of a new phase in US-Russia arms control. By analysing current bilateral disputes over the existing arms control treaties, New START and INF, Stefanovich proposes a number of recommendations to advance the current stalemate.
Dr Katarzyna Kubiak and Julia Berghofer presented at the European INF Initiative Project Meeting which took place on 3rd May 2019 at the Odessa Center for Non-Proliferation and Disarmament. Participants discussed where European states can and cannot join forces in responding to the INF crisis and likely demise.
