US intelligence agencies and the Pentagon’s Strategic Command are working on a Congressional report to evaluate the probability of Russian and Chinese leaders surviving in the event of an American nuclear attack.

The study was commissioned by the US Congress prior to Trump’s inauguration, and calls for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and the Pentagon’s Strategic Command (which plans and would carry out US nuclear strikes) to evaluate Russian and Chinese leadership survivability following a hypothetical US nuclear attack.

The review is provided for in the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act, which passed the House and Senate before being signed into Law by President Barack Obama on December 23.

Section 1669 of the NDAA, entitled ‘Report on Russian and Chinese Political and Military Leadership Survivability, Command and Control, and Continuity of Government Programs and Activities’, calls on the ODNI to submit to Congress a report on what would happen if Moscow and Beijing were subjected to a limited or full-scale nuclear attack.
