Clarity needed on Russian nuclear strike capacity

I don't know if nuclear first strike capability is possible. We need to determine if an arms race with Russia could lead to our annihilation; and if so, we need to have both countries agree to a freeze on new nuclear weapons.

There should, of course, be immediate inspection of any suspected nuclear weapon sites. If Russia doesn't agree to this – and if any diplomatic gesture such as inviting them to join NATO doesn't work – we need to have tougher sanctions than we do at present.
