This past summer, former U.S. Senator Sam Nunn and former Russian Foreign Minister Igor S. Ivanov were two of the signers of a letter to presidents Trump and Putin. In it they recommended these four steps:
1) "A new Presidential Joint Declaration by the United States and the Russian Federation declaring that a nuclear war cannot be won and must never be fought."
2) "Increase military-to-military communication through a new NATO-Russia Military Crisis Management Group."
3) Collaborate to secure "nuclear and radiological materials" so that they do not fall into the hands of terrorist groups.
4) Create "informal understandings on cyber dangers related to interference in strategic warning systems . . . to prevent war by mistake."
