Dismantling of Nuclear Missiles in Russia

Description

Photo of workers in Severodvinsk, Russia, dismantling missiles in 1998. The process of dismantling nuclear weapons, including missiles and submarines, involves cutting them into pieces with acetylene torches and turning them into piles of scrap metal. In just the first ten years of the Nunn-Lugar Cooperative Threat Reduction Program, over 7,000 nuclear warheads and ballistic and cruise missiles had been eliminated.
