"Strategic stability, according to a basic understanding, means the relationship between Russia and the United States, when both sides have no incentives to launch a first nuclear strike. It was defined during the Cold War. Development of new arms technologies, including highprecision non-nuclear, hypersonic weapons and space-based missile defense systems, makes an impact on strategic stability. A significant shift in balance of power between Russia and the United States can undermine stability, increasing the risk of nuclear conflict," - Consultant to PIR Center and Researcher of the Center for Global Trends and International Organizations of the Diplomatic Academy of the Russian Foreign Ministry Andrey Baklitskiy.
