The US and Russia possess 93% of the world’s approximately 16,300 nuclear weapons. While about 6,300 await dismantlement around the world, 4000 are operationally available. An estimated 1800 remain on high alert, ready to launch on short notice. The US nuclear fleet rests not only at 12 sites in 11 US states, but also at 6 sites in 5 different European countries. Russia is more opaque about the locations of its nuclear weapons but is estimated to have permanent storage at 40 locations within the country.
