“The challenge we are seeing is that both Russia and China are substantially modernizing their nuclear arsenal and nuclear weapons systems. And here in Europe, we see Russia deploying medium-range missiles that led to the end of the INF Treaty. Because of them, the warning time is shortened. They are also more difficult to track because they are more mobile”, – said the NATO Secretary General.
