      Driven by mutual perceptions of insecurity, both are about to enter a new arms race. The main problem is that each side is entertaining very different threat perceptions on very different levels of military competition.

With the INF Treaty gone, neither Russia nor the U.S. will have any restrictions on installing new land-based medium-range nuclear weapon systems. Russia apparently has already done so.
