Giving an interview to the American TV channel NBC Putin noted: “My point of view is that the individuals that have said that a new Cold War has started are not analysts. They are involved in propaganda. If you were to speak about an arms race, then an arms race began exactly at the time and moment the U.S. opted out of the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty”. However, there are still some concerns about the start of a new Cold War.

How likely is a new arms race to begin? Are the latest actions of Russia and the U.S. going to lead to a new Cold War or will they become a starting point of the negotiations on a new strategic arms reduction treaty?

These and other questions will be discussed during the webinar by Richard Weitz, Director of the Center for Political-Military Analysis at Hudson Institute and Ilya Kravchenko, RISS Researcher and RIAC Expert.
