Janusz Onyszkiewicz: „Tactical Nuclear Weapons in Europe”

Zapraszamy do lektury artykułu dr. Janusza Onyszkiewicza, Senior Fellow w Centrum Stosunków Międzynarodowych: „Tactical Nuclear Weapons in Europe”

„In my view, it would be unrealistic to expect that these weapons can be completely eliminated in Europe in the short-term. The main problem is that Russia is still very much for maintaining a military balance with NATO in Europe and tactical nuclear weapons are, according to them, essential to offset NATO’s superiority in conventional forces.

In this situation the only way forward is to go for some additional confidence-building measures and greater transparency, trying at the same time to reduce the threat of uncontrolled use of nuclear weapons or their appropriation by non-state, criminal or terrorist groups.”
