Nuclear Weapons Proliferation Risk

 Paul Dorfman: And, of course, what we’re also seeing is the
weaponization of civil nuclear plants with the Russian occupation of
Chernobyl and Zaporizhzhya, a nuclear power plant, which, as the US
ambassador to the UN said, ‘By the grace of God we didn’t have a
nuclear catastrophe’. So as long as there are elements of aggression
going on, then demilitarization of nuclear looks profoundly problematic.
And so we’re getting to the point at which – before, you know, we
thought the Cold War was over, we thought that risk of nuclear annihilation
was a thing of the past. Unfortunately, increasingly, we’re seeing that
these things can happen.”
