Russia is warning that any U.S. attempt to use a low-yield nuclear weapon against a Russian target would set off a massive nuclear response.
俄罗斯警告说,任何美国对俄罗斯目标使用低当量核武器的尝试都会引起大规模的核反应。

The Russian foreign ministry was reacting to a State Department paper released last week that says placing low-yield nuclear weapons on ballistic missiles launched from submarines would counter what it sees as possible new threats from both Russia and China.
俄罗斯外交部对国务院上周发布的一份文件作出反应,该文件称将低产当量武器放在从潜艇发射的弹道导弹上将抵消俄罗斯和中国都可能带来的新威胁。

Experts describe a low-yield weapon as the kind the United States dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki at the end of World War II.
专家们将低当量武器描述为第二次世界大战结束时美国在广岛和长崎投放的那种武器。

The State Department asserts that the low-yield weapons “reduce the risk of nuclear war by reinforcing extended deterrence and assurance.”
国务院断言,低当量武器“通过加强威慑力和保障,降低了核战争的风险。”

It alleges Russia is considering using such nonstrategic nuclear arms in a limited war.
它声称俄罗斯正在考虑在有限的战争中使用这种非战略性核武器。

Russia denies it is a threat to the U.S. and accuses Washington of “lowering the nuclear threshold.”
俄罗斯否认对美国构成威胁,并指责华盛顿“降低核门槛”。

“Any attack involving a U.S. submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM), regardless of its weapon specifications, would be perceived as a nuclear aggression,” Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Wednesday. “Those who like to theorize about the flexibility of American nuclear potential must understand that in line with the Russian military doctrine such actions are seen as warranting retaliatory use of nuclear weapons by Russia.”
俄罗斯外交部发言人玛丽亚·扎哈罗娃(Maria Zakharova)星期三说:“任何涉及美国潜射弹道导弹(SLBM)的攻击,无论其武器规格如何,都将被视为核侵略。” “那些想对美国核潜力的灵活性进行理论分析的人必须理解,根据俄罗斯的军事学说,这种行动被视为俄罗斯有理由报复性地使用核武器。”

Russia says it wants to extend the 2010 New START treaty limiting the number of deployed nuclear missiles, warheads, and bombers along with strict inspection regimes. The pact is set to expire next year.
俄罗斯表示,它希望延长2010年新的《削减战略武器条约》,限制部署的核导弹、核弹头和轰炸机的数量,同时建立严格的检查制度。该协议将于明年到期。

The Trump administration says it wants a new arms control agreement that also includes China — which Russia calls impractical.
特朗普政府表示,希望达成一项新的军控协议,其中也包括中国——俄罗斯称这是不切实际的。
