A new study says that a war between the United States and Russia would cause a famine in addition to a terrible toll of five billion deaths. It is even believed that such a clash could release soot into the atmosphere that would cover the sun.

The study was carried out with computer simulations, according to the Daily Mail. The study highlighted that the calculations were based on the nuclear arsenal of each country. Currently, several nations possess more than 13,000 nuclear weapons, and a confrontation between just nine of them could have ‘apocalyptic’ consequences.

According to the outlet, the confrontation between nine nuclear powers, including the United States, Russia and the United Kingdom, could halt food production and cause widespread famine, which would not only affect countries in the war.

In addition, if the conflict were to break out between Russia and the United States, 90% of the caloric production in the world would be reduced in three or four years after the end of the war. On the other hand, there would be a “catastrophic disruption” of world food markets.

Amid tensions between the two countries, Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday promised to expand military cooperation with the country’s allies and signaled that Moscow is ready to offer them its most advanced weaponry, according to AP.

Speaking at the opening of an annual arms exhibition outside Moscow that caters to foreign clients, Putin said Russia’s arms exports play an important role in the development of a «multipolar world,» the Kremlin’s term to describe their efforts to offset what is perceived as US global dominance.

Putin praised the Russian military’s performance in Ukraine, which has drawn massive sanctions from the West, and thanked Moscow’s allies for their support. “We greatly appreciate having many allies, partners and people who share our approach across multiple continents,” he said.

Putin, whose invasion of Ukraine has been widely condemned as a violation of international law, said the leaders of Moscow’s allies «choose a sovereign and independent course of development and want to collectively solve global and regional security problems on the basis of international law, shared responsibility and mutual interests, thus helping to defend the multipolar world,” according to AP.
