After a 35-year decline, the country’s nuclear weapons count is expected to rise in the following ten years.
In early 2022, the nine nuclear countries — the UK, China, France, India, Israel, North Korea, Pakistan, the US, and Russia — possessed 12,705 nuclear weapons, down 375 from early 2021.
According to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute’s data (SIPRI). Russia is recognised to be the world’s largest nuclear power, with 5,977 warheads operating, in stock, or scheduled for dismantlement in early 2022, a fall of 280 from a year before.
According to SIPRI’s records, around 1,600 of its warheads are now operational. During this time, the US acquired 5,428 warheads, down 120 from the previous year but 1,750 more than Russia.
In terms of overall rankings, China is ranked third with 350 points, followed by France with 290, the United Kingdom with 225, Pakistan with 165, India with 160, and Israel with 90.
Israel is the only country that does not expressly commit to nuclear weapons ownership.
