Crisis in Ukraine has sparked even more controversies as Russia accuses the United States of pushing for regime change in Moscow. Tension across the globe has also been rising following the country’s aggressive military mobilizations on Ukraine with recent evaluations saying that Russia may now be at par, perhaps even beyond, the nuclear capabilities of the West. Are Vladimir Putin and his country a rising threat?

The United States, as per the report, manages 794 vehicles including 1,652 nuclear warheads.
