Russia's new Basic Principles of State Policy in the field of Nuclear Deterrence adds two scenarios in which Russia could be the first to introduce a nuclear attack.

Russia laid out its rules for resorting to nuclear weapons in the event of war as part of its new military doctrine, widening its scope of strategy as it struggles to get the United States to renew longstanding limits on arsenals.

The established protocol permits use when an enemy uses nuclear or other weapons of mass destruction on Russia or its allies, and in situations when conventional weapons"threaten the very existence of the country." A Russian soldier waves on transporters equipped with nuclear-capable RS-24 Yars intercontinental ballistic missiles February 26 as they make their way from Teykovo, Ivanovo region toward Alabino, Moscow ahead of the 75th Victory Day Parade originally scheduled for May 9 but rescheduled for June 24 as a result of the novel coronavirus pandemic.The document describes containing and deterring aggressions against Russia as being"among the highest national priorities.

Both the Soviet Union and the United States amassed tens of thousands of nuclear weapons during their decades-long Cold War and although both countries have taken significant steps toward non-proliferation, they remain in possession of the world's largest stockpiles. Since coming to office in 2017, President Donald Trump has threatened to let a historic treaty limiting and allowing information-sharing mechanisms of the U.S. and Russia's arsenals expire.
