Sen. Lugar continues disarmament push despite primary defeat | The Hill’s Global Affairs

Sen. Dick Lugar’s (R-Ind.) primary defeat earlier this year won’t prevent him from visiting the former Soviet Union to check up on the progress of his signature nuclear disarmament program.

The GOP’s elder statesman on foreign affairs announced Tuesday that he will travel to Russia and Ukraine next month to check up on the progress of the 1991 law he coauthored with then-Sen. Sam Nunn (D-Ga.) to provide U.S. expertise in helping the former Soviet Union dismantle its arsenal of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons.
