Russia's nuclear 'sabre-rattling' is dangerous: NATO

  • Russia's announcement that it would bolster its nuclear arsenal has drawn a sharp reaction from NATO, which called the move “dangerous” and “unjustified” and amounting to nuclear “sabre-rattling."

    Russian president Vladimir Putin said that the country will put into service over 40 new intercontinental ballistic missiles in 2015.

    Under Putin, Russia has launched a comprehensive program to modernize its military. Russia’s latest move comes amid American plans to increase its military presence in Eastern Europe.
