    Regardless if a scam or not, working to survive a nuclear war might seem like the ultimate act in futility.

    Survivability would depend a great deal on the number and yield of weapons detonated, and where.

    The U.K. has many more backing it up from France and U.S.

    The worry is about any use of nuclear weapons, not the number possessed by Russia, or anyone else.

    This seems more reliable.

    If say the UK is attacked would France or the US direct their missiles on Russia?

    The U.K also has nuclear submarines (Vanguard-class) and could respond by an attack on Russia with its own ballistic missiles.

    But NATO's article 5 would be invoked, and one assumes that a retaliatory strike by U.K. and other NATO powers would result.
