Hiroshima for Global Peace

Hiroshima Report 20183. Russia (Nuclear-Weapon State)

Points / Full Points (%)

Nuclear Disarmament

7.8/101 (7.7%)

The number of Russia’s nuclear weapons has been reduced. It also continues to implement the New START. Still, it is estimated to possess approximately 7,000 nuclear warheads, and has actively developed and deployed new ICBMs and SLBMs for replacing aged delivery vehicles. Furthermore, Russia is alleged to have violated the INF Treaty. It voted against most of the UNGA Resolutions regarding nuclear disarmament, and showed a negative attitude to the issues on humanitarian dimensions as well as legal prohibition of nuclear weapons, in particular. It neither participated in the negotiation conference of the TPNW, nor signed the treaty. It continued to repeat nuclear saber-rattling vis-à-vis the U.S. and NATO.

Nuclear Non-Proliferation

35/47 (74.5%)

Russia acceded to the IAEA Additional Protocol in which no provision for complementary access visits is stipulated. It considers that the conclusion of an Additional Protocol should be voluntary. It has implemented measures on nuclear non-proliferation proactively, though to a lesser extent than the western countries.

Nuclear Security

19/41 (46.3%)

Russia has ratified all relevant treaties, is involved in the prevention of illicit transfers and nuclear forensics cooperation, and the introduction of the recommended measures of INFCIRC/225Rev.5 is proceeding. Russia carries out diverse education and training related activities under the ROSATOM Tech Academy, and its contribution to capacity building in the field of nuclear security is remarkable.
