Item Information

Title:
Interview with Yuri Davydov, 1986
Description:
Yuri Davydov was an analyst at the USA-Canada Institute, a think tank in Moscow. Here, he provides insights into Soviet perceptions about a range of nuclear-related issues during the Cold War. Most of the questions deal with Moscow's views on proliferation, from the days of Atoms for Peace to development of the Chinese bomb to the potential or actual acquisition of a weapon by the likes of India, Pakistan, South Africa and Israel. He believes the NPT has not worked and delivers a passionate statement on the need for the superpowers to pay close attention to the actions of smaller powers and particularly to the example the US and Soviet Union are setting.
