They’re no longer on trigger alert towards each other like they were during the Cold War. I think the most likely scenario that we’d see today is the use of a dirty bomb, or a rogue nuke, or a smaller nuke, and I think it would be similar to 9/11 except on a dramatically vaster scale.

I personally expect in my lifetime to see another nuclear weapon used, and it’s going to be a terrorist group or non-state actor setting it off.
Russia had its own problems. It had already had its minor revolution, the uprisings of 1905, leading to political reforms and the creation of a Russian parliament, the Duma.
