C.I.S. SLBMs

After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Soviet nuclear arsenal was spread among four countries: Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Belarus. All nuclear warheads have now been returned to Russia and the other three countries have entered the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty as nuclear-free states. All missiles and silos have not yet been destroyed, to meet START-1 requirements, but that process is ongoing. Russia remains the only former Soviet republic with nuclear weapons.
