Russian Military Reform: Institutional, Political and Security Implications

Defense and Security Analysis. 2013. Vol. 29. No. 4. P. 320-328.
Sergunin A. A., Makarychev A.

This article examines the incentives, major priorities, difficulties and first results of the Russian military reform that is being implemented since 2008. The authors conclude that despite numerous drawbacks and barriers to the reformist efforts certain successes can be identified. Particularly, there is a clear shift from the old-fashioned, Soviet-type army to a more compact, mobile, better equipped and combat-ready armed forces that are capable to cope with today’s challenges to Russian national security.
