Russia’s Military Modernization: The Geostrategic And Geopolitical Implications

By Dr Subhash Kapila

Russian military modernization has been underway for nearly five years or so and can be expected to pick up pace as a more confident and assertive Russia emerges. Military modernization of Russia has continued without interruption even with the change of Presidents in 2008.

The present surge in Russian military modernization has been more sharply noticed by American and Western strategic analysts presumably with the noticeable modernization of Russia’s strategic nuclear missiles, nuclear submarines, sea-launched nuclear missiles and the resumption of global air patrols by Russian strategic bombers. Also noticeable is Russia’s plans for priority modernization of Russia’s force projection capabilities.
