The battle efficiency of the Russian army was assessed in Britain

The Russian Armed Forces are currently at the highest level of combat capability since the Cold War. This is the conclusion reached by experts from the London International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS).


The British Institute released a report titled "Modernizing the Russian Armed Forces: An Assessment", which says that the reforms and investments that began after the 2008 military conflict in South Ossetia have made the Russian military professional and far better equipped. Particular attention is paid to the successful modernization of the Aerospace and nuclear forces, as well as the high level of combat readiness of the Ground Forces. Efforts to update the Russian Navy are also noted.

Today, the Russian armed forces have become an effective military tool, and Moscow has demonstrated its readiness to use it or the threat of its use.

- the report says.

Earlier, the Russian Ministry of Defense said that Russia manages to maintain a high level of combat readiness, despite the fact that the military budget is several times smaller than that of the United States and NATO. According to Deputy Prime Minister Yury Borisov, Moscow ranks sixth in the world in terms of the absolute amount of funds spent on weapons. The upgrade of the armament of the Russian army is included in the state program, the supply of modern new types of weapons and equipment will continue.

    What's so surprising !!!
    Real enemies and other shops are scurrying around us ... so our armored train is already under steam! The guns are settled, it remains to sound the whistle and rush!
    Over the hill, they sensed it, those who still have a chuyka and brains.

      And they smelled, and were upset, having estimated at how much such combat readiness would rise. bully

        They are not praising us - they are begging for money. "Russia is so strong - we need even more money in order not to succumb when Russia finally decides to seize us."

        These are stupid CNNs, Marjumzhars, Poles, skakls, Tribaltika shout about how weak Russia is, what a bad weapon it has, that we are showing cartoons about hypersound and everything is bad in Russia. And from the official bosses in uniform from America, for example, has anyone heard this? So I haven't heard. On the contrary, they whine all the time - "Russia is stronger than ever, if they attack, we won't cope, GIVE MONEY - we will buy new missiles (ships, planes, guns, we will build bases)."

        The enemy praises you - it means that you are doing something wrong. Sun Tzu said about it 2600 years ago -
        The one who correctly points out my mistakes is my teacher; the one who correctly marks my true deeds is my friend; the one who flatters me is my enemy.

          The money machine is not eternal; it will not work to draw zeroes in bank computers indefinitely. And "helicopter money" needs to be printed, and the economy that is stuck with money needs to be flooded, and holes in the leaky budget need to be darned, and then there is the Pentagon in the queue for the money, it is stepping on its heels. Yes, and probably for the Negroes before the elections, something needs to be thrown in order to defend the ideals of democracy with a vengeance on the streets. laughing However, blacks have already switched to self-sufficiency, so to speak, "pasture". I don't want to rob.

            As long as green paper with a cost price of 2 cents per piece of paper (regardless of denomination) floats around the world - it will always be so.

            By the way - it seems to me that one of the gravest sins of Gaddafi before "Western democracy" was that he offered the oil industry of North Africa and the Middle East to transfer from the dollar to her "golden dinar, clearly tied to the rate of gold and secured by it." "(an expression to which we, for some unknown reason, were accustomed in the late 80s and early 90s), provided only by the hot Texas air since 1972, such competition would not have withstood even 20 minutes. Naturally," a shortage of democracy "and" opposition "- and then everything according to the manual.

            And not the last irritant for the "most democratic" in this regard is the promise of Russia and China to switch to national currencies in mutual settlements. How well will it be? Well, how else would anyone want? What, then, do American banks live on? And most importantly - how to "expand democracy" all over the world without dollars?

              It was the only the sin of Gaddafi. For the time being, he got away with everything. Up to accusations of world terrorism. Well, they bombed a little, it happened, but they did not disdain to handle. But when he encroached on "sacred", that is, on the dollar. Demolished in two seconds. And they killed demonstratively on camera, so that others would not be familiar.

                But quite recently ... Here it is, the wrong side of American "friendship".
                23.09.2009g.

                Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, who arrived in the United States for a session of the UN General Assembly, pitched a tent in the state of New York. Senator Vincent Libell confirmed that Gaddafi had leased the site.
                The leased site belongs to the organization of billionaire Donald Trump. They explained that they had leased the land for a short time to partners from the Middle East; Trump's representatives do not know about their connection with Gaddafi.
                The date and ownership of the site is especially important.

                In Moscow, however, Gaddafi also lived in a tent. Well, so we didn't bomb it ...

        The praise of the brits is worse than no achievement! So everything suits them!
        The global lag in the systems of reconnaissance and control of the real situation, the absence of target designation systems to destroy the enemy in real time, significantly reduce the capabilities of the army in modern warfare. Combat Information Systems are completely absent and are replaced by command and control systems that use old methods of collecting information about the enemy and ensure decision-making in time close to real ?! And the degree of this approximation is unknown! And there is no need to talk about the detection, identification, decision-making and destruction of the enemy in real time ...
        This is not the case either in Syria, or in Libya, or in the LPNR, or on our borders !!! We do not know anything, and we do not control the hostilities in Karabakh, and this is in the presence of our base and military in Armenia !!! What are they there for? Where are the magic electronic warfare, where are the reconnaissance planes, where are Avaks, where are satellite and other surveillance systems ?! We have nothing !!!

        Surprisingly less.
        The Central Bank of the Russian Federation reported that the volume of dubious transactions with signs of withdrawing funds abroad decreased in the first half of 2020 by 1,7 times compared to the same period in 2019.

        Any threat to the Bretton Woods agreement, which introduced a gold exchange standard based on gold and two currencies - the US dollar and the British pound sterling, is regarded by the Naglo-Saxons as a direct threat, because the very essence of the existence of their economies is leveled.

      It seems to me now that there is less window dressing in the exercises than Zap81. Yet this is not the assessment of combat readiness. And for example, the call of reservists in the 79th in Afghanistan. Or the fact that the 94th military group could not really be assembled. What is this rapid degradation of the ideal military machine? The Russian army "shot" maybe even more than the Soviet one. And in the worst conditions. I mean the last 10 years of the union. There, as it were, there was degradation on the face. And Agarkov could not solve all the problems alone. And it was more about the economy ... Well, honestly, now it turns out quite qualitatively. After all, there is also a trick with strategic mobility, which was not particularly used in the Union.

    Ps we have heating, but the Europeans do not have very much, and it is very expensive to heat, I am talking about industrial enterprises and about heat in apartments (this is our almost collapsed socialism (social capitalism), but in Europe there is no central heating or it costs serious money )

            The main thing that is wrong with them is the decision of the Trump team to no longer participate in wars for other people's interests. It's no secret that in Afghanistan, American soldiers guard poppy plantations that belong to the Queen of England. Trump will withdraw all military personnel from there. And not only from Afgan.
            pump Belarus (I assure you, nothing has ended there)

            I agree that it is not over, but I am sure that the worst has already passed.
            lit Transcaucasia again

            Ilham Aliyev quite clearly explained what is needed for a ceasefire: "The only condition for the cessation of hostilities in Karabakh is the withdrawal of units and military equipment of the Armenian army from this territory, other options are not considered."
            Armenian "Napoleon" will be forced to fulfill this condition. It's not easy for Russia - LDNR, Syria, Belarus. Now also the Caucasus. But, thank God, we are coping so far. hi

            With Belarus you are right yes As the agricultural season ends, the collective farmers will be pulled up to the Maidan, and those are still dursila. My grandfather in 1898 said why the revolution took place in Russia in 1917? because Russia was at that time mostly bast shoes (illiterate) in World War I, many nobles were knocked out and they began to take officers from the lower classes. And then the land to the peasants, factories, workers and water rushed into the hut. Then how many more years they fought against illiteracy. In Ukraine, "Ukraine tse Evropa" also worked, and everything started in November at the end of the agricultural season. The garden was harvested. Winter crops were sown. There is essentially no work other than caring for the cattle. Why not go for a maidan and make some money? What's the difference for what to Maidan, if only the money is paid until April still do nefig. The scenario has been worked out as in Ukraine.

    Some kind of envy and misunderstanding runs through. This expert cannot fail to know that the military budgets of the British and Russian Armed Forces are comparable, he cannot but know the number of l / s and equipment in service with his army and ours, and accordingly he cannot but wonder about the similarity of budgets and the difference in capabilities.

    When the British talk about this, they need to be wary and understand why they are praising the Russian army. Maybe they really want to warn their zealous politicians - don't go to Moscow. Or maybe they are preparing some dirty trick again? There is no longer any faith even if you are suddenly praised in the Western press.

    Today, the Russian armed forces have become an effective military tool, and Moscow has demonstrated its readiness to use it or the threat of its use.

    This is a normal estimate to demand an increase in the defense budget under this cover. Do you think they expressed their concern about their safety with this assessment? Not at all. It is aimed at the electorate and parliament. If it's not clear what all this hype is for, then it's about money.
