Putin signs way back from the CTBT Date 2nd November, 2023 President Vladimir Putin on Thursday inked a bill repealing Russia’s ratification of a global nuclear test ban, a move that Moscow said was demanded to establish equality with the United States.
Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) is an agreement banning any nuclear armament test explosion or any other nuclear explosion anywhere in the world. This was made in 1996 but was not completely enforced, countries like US, India, Pakistan, North Korea, Israel, Iran, China and Egypt are yet to be permission the treaty In a stark warning to the West, Putin said that Russia could renew nuclear testing for the first time in over three decades. Russian leader Putin before this month reignited enterprises of nuclear war after he declared that the ‘Satan- 2’ and ‘Flying Chernobyl’ dumdums would be ready soon. Putin claimed Russia had “virtually finished work on the ultramodern strategic munitions” that he’d been talking about and had blazoned a many times agony.
This decision may lead to a US- Russia arms war again after decades of silence.
