Nuclear deterrence and the concept of MAD in the relations between the U.S.A. and the RF

Jana HONKOVÁ*, Petr SUCHÝ**

The text analyses the position, role and perception of mutual nuclear deterrence between the United States and the Russian Federation in the period after the end of the Cold War. The authors argue that the deterrence is still present in the Russian-American relationship, despite the fact, that its intensity significantly decreased. They come to conclusion that this feature of mutual relationship is going to be present in the foreseeable future as well as the ongoing debates.
