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. As a result, Russia's military capabilities have been greatly enhanced in recent years.
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.
