OREANDA-NEWS "The danger of a clash between the two powers has existed since the collapse of the Soviet Union due to the presence of two diametrically opposed worldviews" , - the ex-intelligence officer notes. 

Koffler stressed that the reason for the future open conflict is considered to be the improvement of Russian nuclear weapons. 

“The Soviet atomic arsenal eventually became a psychological weapon”, - Koffler said. 

She added that it was never used in a combat. The US officer considers Russia the only country that is capable of wiping out Americans from the face of the earth, reports The Hill. 

Earlier, an expert from the American Arms Control Association warned of the danger of an uncontrolled nuclear war. He stressed that now the arms race has weakened in comparison with the situation that developed during the Cold War between the United States and the USSR. Now NATO may open fire on Russian ships in the Black Sea. This was stated by the commander of the US Navy in Europe and Africa, Admiral Robert Burke.
