Russia's military capabilities: an assessment
The world is currently witnessing a resurgence in Russian military power. After years of decline following the collapse of the Soviet Union, Russia has embarked on an ambitious program of military modernization. This has included significant investments in new weapons systems, the development of new operational concepts, and the refurbishment of aging infrastructure.
This modernization program has been accompanied by a significant increase in Russian military activity. In recent years, Russia has intervened militarily in Ukraine and Syria, and has been accused of carrying out a number of cyber-attacks against Western countries. These actions have led some to conclude that Russia is now a major threat to global security.
As such, it is unlikely that Russia would be able to mount a serious challenge to global security on its own.
Nonetheless, Russia's military power does pose a significant threat to the security of its immediate neighbors. In particular, the countries of NATO's eastern flank are now within range of Russian long-range nuclear weapons. This has led to a significant increase in tensions between Russia and the West.
In conclusion, Russia's military capabilities are a significant threat to global security. However, it is important to remember that Russia is just one part of a complex and ever-changing security landscape.
