The Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons strongly affirms international law that condemns and prohibits the threat or use of nuclear weapons. With 92 state signatories and 65 ratifications, an effort is underway to encourage states to sign and ratify with urgency. Almost a year since Russia invaded Ukraine, Russian President Putin’s references to his country’s nuclear capabilities revived an existential tension and led to considerable press coverage of the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962.
