General Leonid Ivashov: “Our defense spending cannot be considered overstated”

59
General Leonid Ivashov: “Our defense spending cannot be considered overstated”The US Senate approved the Pentagon budget for 2012-year in the amount of 662 billion dollars. Our opposition insists that Russia spends a lot on defense, although the military budget of the Russian Federation is an order of magnitude less than that of the United States.
The situation is commented by the president of the Academy of Geopolitical Problems, Colonel-General Leonid IVASHOV:
- Our spending on defense can not be considered excessive. Moreover, they are insufficient.
The Liberals have done a lot since the 90s to destroy the material base, the material basis of our defense. Today, they continue to frighten us that we spend a lot of money not on medicine and education, but on the military-industrial complex.

I would stress that if there is no opportunity to ensure the military security of the country, then there will be neither education, nor science, nor medicine, since there will be no country itself. Without exaggeration, I will say: today the question of the existence and survival of the Russian state is seriously facing.
Russia cannot now compete with the United States in terms of the level of the military budget, and this is useless. We have different geostrategic goals. Russia wants only security. Americans seek to conquer, subjugate the whole world. Their strategy is offensive, with a claim to world domination.
But Russia should seriously think about the state of its defense security. We need to understand the trends that are observed in the world - the growth of military spending is going on in almost all countries.

Especially those of our rivals who claim to our resources, want to subordinate our foreign and domestic policy to their interests.
The country's security is the most important function and task of any government. Safety is her main concern.
How much, how little do we spend? Well, given that all 90s have destroyed Russia's defense capabilities, urgent measures are needed to revive its military power.

Requires serious scientific and prognostic studies. It is necessary to identify options for threats, risks to Russia's security and determine measures (and only specialists can do this) how to neutralize these threats.
We need a new concept of our security, taking into account various factors. First of all - foreign policy.
Russia has practically no serious ally. We need to actively form the system of allies.
With China, we must jointly neutralize common threats: to restrain the US nuclear missile potential, their missile defense system. I believe that here China will go for joint actions.

We need allies in other regions. For example, this is India. We need to work in the Middle East, with Iran, with Brazil.
The alliance is not very costly, but very effective.
The second direction is the CIS. We must have a common defense space not only with Belarus, but throughout the entire CSTO space. And it necessarily provides for the coordination of the military-technical program for all countries.

Security policy should be based on a material basis. On the military and military-technical potential of the state. And we must not just allocate money, but there must be a concept for the development of armaments for ten years.
And businesses need to know which types weapons they have to create. A long-term state defense order for specific types of equipment, research and development work is needed.

If we restore our defense-industrial complex, and even skillfully use the defense achievements for civilian innovative programs, our technologies, then we can go on to reduce part of the defense budget.
But only if the military-political situation in the world allows.
Today, however, it is necessary to drastically increase costs in order to restore the former power of our defense complex.

      NovoSibirets,
      Your wish has been taken into account:
      On Saturday, December 10, there was a meeting of 500 people - the official nominees of Leonid Ivashov, a presidential candidate. This procedure is required by law. Now, on Monday, December 12, the documents will be sent to the CEC, and we will wait for confirmation of the official registration of Leonid Grigoryevich as a presidential candidate. Only after that we will have subscription lists and we will be able to start a campaign to collect signatures.

        Only a little late in the day, however, you are fussing. In order to do such a thing in a serious way, I had to turn on a year ago, in my humble opinion. And now, in order to achieve the result, you just need to EXPLODE the public! Here, such a PR is needed, Mom, do not worry! Ivashov, although a well-known person, is still in very limited circles! And this is probably 5-7 percent of the entire electorate? Not "weather".
        Although the people with whom they discussed are for. They support it unconditionally. There is truth, too, remarks, as here on the site, that the president should be both an economist and a skater and a sparkling player, and Ivashov, they say, is a purely military analyst, etc. teams. Try it. I immediately said - "Ivashov will be balancing - my voice is his, and I also think I will bring 5-7 people in the beak", and if you seriously trample, then I will campaign people in the network, since there are many friends))
        Go ahead, Oleg!

      I don’t understand who the opposition means. How long have the authorities been in power and what has been done except chatter? Even after Yeltsin the Army and working defense plants remained, and now, when it’s not even the cleverest to see what the West is striving for, remained miraculous. And the people are beautiful pictures and chatter smart on all channels. There is Ivashov’s speech at the congress of officers in February 2009, there he generally talked about things that could not be called betrayal ... And what is he constantly pulling that Serdyukov, what, he himself became a minister? Or, what he does is not known to the prime minister and to another, also the boss? In the best case, this is naive ...

    As much money as possible in defense! And the military-industrial complex will pull us! Yes, everything is written correctly! And horror stories about the fact that the budget will tear from this, complete. The defense industry is thousands of highly qualified jobs, new technologies, factories, enterprises, etc. Somewhere it was written that the Union fell apart due to an arms race, too. It fell apart due to the rotten tops and the control system that did not want to change! Our defense industry just need to fill up with orders for the most I can not! And monitor the quality!

Perhaps they will find money for this.

As far as I remember, he commanded the General Staff in times of trouble. There are simply too many of his publications. Nothing new, at least for me) And it seems to me that the army is strengthening and will be safely strengthened without his help. I could be wrong, of course.

    We have different geostrategic goals. Russia only wants security.


    Russia never wanted ONLY security.) Russia, like all other large states with a long history, has had imperialist sentiments. And you won’t get anywhere from this. Another question is whether it is good or bad, and for whom.
    Anyone need to raise the defense industry, because without it there really would be no country. And the question is about the survival of Russia as a single state.

    With China, we must jointly neutralize common threats: to restrain the US nuclear missile potential, their missile defense system. I believe that here China will go for joint actions.

    China will take all steps as long as it is beneficial to it. Two huge countries, each with its own problems, have a common border. It’s like two lions on the same territory, who just do not yet compete openly. Here it is more interesting who is the greater enemy, pendostan or China.

    We must have a common defense space not only with Belarus,

    Unification, cooperation with Belarus is certainly good. Two countries have always been inextricable. And as if I did not want to believe in it, but if any mess suddenly begins, Russia will surrender Belarus without hesitation. We are just a buffer for Russia. It may be with some kind of production, but for the most part, a buffer.

              People serve in the army not for the sake of "crumbs from the table", they are the first to go under bullets, but people like you sold cartridges to Chechens, etc. You don't touch the officers, you brat

              my sweetheart, and you saw those "grandmothers", the atom will be an ancdote, as in his time the pale spirochete of the Russian crap Sakhorov told how a paratrooper drove a grandmother for three kilometers until she fell into the bushes, where he beat her to death with a sapper paw, after all scoundrel (I'm talking about the paratrooper smile )
