Russia Military Guide

In recent years, GlobalSecurity.org has placed considerable emphasis on coverage of Russia. There are at least three reasons for this focus:

  1. Under Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin, the great power competition has re-emerged with a vengeance, though Russia is punching well above its weight.
  2. Russian online sources have exploded with an abundance of description and analysis that would have been unthinkable in the 20th Century, and that rival online sources on the American military.
  3. Recent improvements in machine language translation have rendered Russian language sources readily accessible to non-linguists.
