The Russian military offered guaranteed protection from NATO
MilitaryEzyInfo.com | Russian military scientists have proposed a new variant of combat use of the Air and Space Forces (ASCF). This is stated in the magazine “Air and Space Forces. Theory and Practice” of the Ministry of Defense, RIA Novosti reports.
The researchers point out that the updated approach will provide “guaranteed protection against a possible multi sphere operation of NATO.” Multisphere operation is understood to mean the use of weapons on land, sea, air, space, and cyberspace and would begin with an integrated massive airstrike on strategic targets.
To prevent such a development, the authors of the article suggest that the military launch a counter or preemptive strike by the air force, so that the enemy would face “unacceptable damage already at the initial stage of its aggression. However, it is possible to achieve such a blow only with the coordinated work of aviation, rocket, and electronic warfare specialists, as well as the use of weapons based on new physical principles.
On November 13, 2020, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree introducing a national defense plan for 2021-2025. The document was published on the portal of legal information. It consists of a series of military planning documents, but its content is classified.
In December 2014, Putin enacted a new military doctrine for the country. Its main difference was the expansion of the list of internal and external threats to include actions to destabilize the sociopolitical situation in the country, informational influence on the population in order to undermine historical, spiritual, and patriotic traditions in the defense of the Fatherland, and incitement of interethnic and interreligious discord.
