Military Review

Cohesion architecture

Attempts to divide terrorists into good and bad are not just short-sighted, but criminal


The world in Syria is very fragile, negotiations with representatives of the opposition are difficult. How will the situation? On whose side will the coalition led by the United States act? Is a concerted fight against international terrorism possible? Answers to these questions were sought by the participants of the V Moscow Conference on International Security. The forum brought together more than 500 representatives from military departments and international organizations from 80 countries. MIC offers readers presentations that set the direction and level of discussion.

For the fifth year already, the heads of military departments, prominent political and public figures, authoritative representatives of academic and non-governmental organizations from different countries gather in the spring in Moscow for a serious and frank conversation. Traditionally, we bring up for discussion questions on the solution of which the security of ordinary people and entire states depends.

Since our last meeting, the world has not become more durable. Despite the joint efforts of Russia and other states, in a number of regions the situation is far from stability. They are fighting. Developed block thinking. There is a haunting line of some countries to dictate the will of the international community.

Obviously, the threshold for the use of force is reduced. Anti-missile defense projects that are dangerous to the fate of the world, a lightning-fast global strike continue to be implemented, including the use of high-precision long-range weapons that are comparable in effect to nuclear weapons. This undermines the already fragile architecture of international and regional security.

In this situation, more than ever, new proposals are being sought to strengthen equitable and mutually respectful military cooperation, which should contribute to the development of honest and responsible political decisions.

Word for Washington

Terrorism has become the number one problem for all of us.

Illustrative examples of this are the death of a Russian passenger plane over the Sinai, recent Islamist attacks in Europe, rampant terror in the Middle East, where a number of countries are on the verge of losing statehood, the situation in Afghanistan, militant attempts to gain an additional base in Asia-Pacific and Central Asia.

Cohesion architectureIt is time for the global community to come together. This can and should be done on the basis of the initiative of the President of the Russian Federation to create a broad antiterrorist coalition based on the norms of international law and the provisions of the UN Charter. I want to emphasize that any attempts to flirt with terrorists, to divide them into good and bad, and even more to arm them to achieve selfish political goals are not just short-sighted, but also criminal.

For the Ministry of Defense, the elimination of this threat is one of the priorities. Our main goal is defined by the president of Russia - to stop terrorism at distant approaches, to prevent him from spreading to our country. This is the task we are solving in Syria, where, in full compliance with international law, at the request of the legitimate leadership, we support the Syrian army in the fight against the IS prohibited in Russia, Dzhebhat al-Nusroy and other criminal groups.

Syria's terrorism has been dealt a powerful blow. The military, material, technical and financial infrastructure of the militants was undermined, their training camps and weapon caches destroyed. With the support of the Russian aviation Syrian troops liberated 500 settlements and more than 10 thousand square kilometers of their territory. The government army and the forces of the patriotic opposition managed to seize the initiative in all key areas. But the main thing is to create conditions for the beginning of the peace process in the country.

This allowed us to adjust our work in Syria. By decision of the President of Russia, part of the aerospace forces was withdrawn from the territory of this country, and the remaining air force there continues to strike at the gangs. We intend to consistently destroy the economic basis of the IG, whose main source of income is oil smuggling.

The Russian Ministry of Defense has repeatedly shown who and to whom supplies stolen oil, from where terrorists take money. Together, decisive action we must put an end to this.

Today, Russian efforts are focused on a political settlement of the conflict, humanitarian assistance to the population of areas affected by terrorists.

The turning point of the armed confrontation in Syria was the release of Palmyra from the IG. Now it is necessary to create conditions for the restoration of this monument of the world historical heritage: to clear from mines, to ensure safety and normal conditions for the work of UNESCO specialists there. We count on the practical support of all states, the United Nations, including its specialized organizations, as well as regional centers for humanitarian mine clearance.

In general, we positively evaluate our interaction with the United States in Syria. There is a bilateral agreement on the prevention of incidents in the air. The interaction of military structures responsible for the truce of the parties. Russia and the United States, as permanent members of the UN Security Council, have a special responsibility for maintaining universal peace.

That is why our countries are obliged to cooperate more closely in the fight against international terrorism. We are ready for this. Word for Washington.

We often hear from our Western colleagues: Assad will leave - and the bloodshed in Syria will stop. A coalition led by the United States will support Russia. However, it is difficult to believe in these "good intentions". The question arises: who prevented restoring peace, bringing order to Iraq and Libya after the removal of Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi?

Security boundaries


The expansion of military-technical cooperation with the CIS member states, the development of the CSTO power component, the strengthening of the military organization of the Union State with Belarus are undoubted priorities in the international activities of the Russian defense ministry.

The parade on the occasion of the 70 anniversary of the Great Victory became the symbol of cohesion and indestructible brotherhood of our countries. More than 700 servicemen from the CIS and other friendly states marched in Red Square, paying tribute to the heroic efforts of the Soviet people in World War II.

We are interested in having our allies and partners have compact, highly mobile, armed with modern weapons and military equipment capable of reliably and effectively confronting challenges and threats. The logic of our actions is simple: strengthening the borders of the CSTO means strengthening the security of Russia. One of the common tasks is to prevent the spread of metastasis of terrorism to the space of the CIS countries.

In this context, we pay special attention to the alarming situation in the Central Asian region, the development of which is adversely affected by the terrorist threat from the territory of Afghanistan. We are convinced that the Russian military bases in Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan are the guarantors of stability. Together with our allies, we are strengthening their combat readiness, which in turn enhances the security of Dushanbe and Bishkek.

It is in our common interest to build up the military component of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization. The Russian Ministry of Defense has initiated the creation of an institution of national military advisers under the SCO. Its implementation could increase the effectiveness of joint actions.

On the threshold of the absurd


European security issues will be discussed, but the situation in this area is deplorable. Russia's military cooperation with the countries of the North Atlantic Alliance and the European Union was frozen through no fault of ours. The meeting of the Russia-NATO Council held on April 20 did not add optimism.

The old schemes of control over the armed forces are outdated. The existing mechanisms are sometimes used by partners in bad faith. It will be difficult to create a new conventional arms control architecture in the face of an acute lack of trust in Europe.

A tough and uncompromising information war is being waged against Russia. There are statements about the threat from Moscow to European states, about the need for military deterrence of our country. As a justification for such actions, the absurd thesis is being replicated that Russia supposedly approached the “NATO threshold”. In general, everything is turned upside down.

Shouts from Brussels and a number of other capitals are distributed to us. And if they talk about the possibility of dialogue, it is only on the priority issues for themselves and, of course, in the tone of a strict teacher who is accusing a negligent student.

At the same time, the United States and NATO launched the deployment of military infrastructure near the Russian borders, implementing dangerous anti-missile plans, and increasing military spending. Such actions force us to take adequate military-technical response. At the same time, I want to say responsibly: we are against the arms race.

Obviously, attempts to isolate Russia made during the acute phase of the crisis in Ukraine failed. The act of Turkish aggression against the Russian bomber in Syria clearly demonstrated that the alliance was hostage to the adventurous policies of its individual members.

We are not against the restoration of relations with NATO, but this can be done solely on the basis of reciprocity, respect for national interests and with equal and indivisible security for all. It is better to communicate at the negotiating table, rather than through gun sights.

Pacific dialogue


We are in favor of building an architecture of equal and indivisible security in the Asia-Pacific region. At the heart of the Russian initiative is the supremacy of international law, non-alignment, the peaceful settlement of disputes and conflicts, the non-use of force or the threat of force, respect for the interests of each other.

The meeting of the heads of the defense ministries of Russia and the ASEAN member countries was held for the first time in stories our relationship. We frankly exchanged views on the development of international military cooperation and security issues. This meeting is an important contribution to the upcoming Russia-ASEAN summit, which will be held in Sochi and is timed to the 20 anniversary of the dialogue partnership of our country with the association's states.

We see a common interest in cooperation for countering terrorism, non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, and overcoming emergency situations. We plan to expand cooperation in the fight against piracy, search and rescue of those in distress at sea.

The format of a meeting of ASEAN member defense ministers and dialogue partners has good potential. Over the past five years, it has become an effective, sought-after mechanism for regional military engagement.

I am sure that we have enough experience, knowledge and wisdom to work out concrete steps to strengthen international and regional security.

    Found a scythe on a stone it's called. Seeing Russia rising from its knees, the West, led by the United States, began the old schemes of waging the classic Cold War, which is now called the beautiful word "hybrid". And everything is simple - Russia is the aggressor (?), All the rest are good. Let's stop the "aggressor". All this I am against us - the elementary fear of the United States for their wallet.

        There would be someone to argue with and what to discuss. It is useless to discuss something with amers. Their policy is "there are 2 opinions, ours and the wrong." For them, the world is unipolar. And if a competitor appears on the political map, their task is to strangle the competitor by any means, which we are seeing today in relation to Russia.

            Just how to do it? There was a chance with Ukraine, but there was no strength or political will. Only "cunning plans", but screams - "We are being drawn in."

            The Russians, having lost their Faith, remained only out of state of mind.
            The puppeteers of Russia's liberal-oligarchic system are clapping their hands. The Yeltsin Foundation is funded from the state. budget. The "patriotic" media are choking with the delight of heroic victories and achievements! The highest awards of the Russian state have turned into a profanation.

Our dialogues and disputes with the USA lead nowhere. They are like that cat, they are listening and advancing, they are listening and advancing. And what is the result of our disputes with the USA? What truth came out of them? Are they our partners? That means they are always ready to turn his shoulder and help! What are they doing? They are our rivals, competitors, opponents. What can I agree with them? On sanctions, have we agreed a lot with them?

Like my father, the colonel doctor didn’t receive a salary for half a year

    "Overall, we appreciate our engagement with the United States in Syria."
    You want to be friends, but they don’t want to be with you. They want your death.
    "Bend your line," as they say, and then somewhere, far away, they will begin to think.
    And if you are "Guys, let's live together!", Then they will accept help (after all, again in the shit), but they will say "Even thanks to you, you haven’t made friends. And I remember in WW2 somewhere in third roles ... no, an ally should not behave like that. Why would an atomic bomb on cute Japanese people? But what should we expect from such people? " Yes, yes, we dropped the bomb on the Japanese.
    We are their "partners", and they are "danger number 1, enemy number 1".
    The answer may be asymmetric, but to a lesser extent, it must be adequate.

Amers need us to get bogged down there, because they don’t pull out Turkey’s ally, they don’t recognize tudes-syuds wandering across the border. We need peace there. it’s necessary to cut off the border. The Kurds can provide tremendous help, so ASADA must be forced to make concessions on this issue.

        The question, however, is not quite simple ... On the one hand, while oil is traded for dollars, high prices are beneficial for the United States (well, as an exception, they are low for themselves); on the other hand, Russia, as the world's second-first producer in terms of volume, should be weak and controlled by the United States (like Saudi Arabia) ... This is where a kind of "conflict of interest" or ambiguity of the situation arises - Russia does not want to be controlled by the United States , so you need to "bring down" the price of oil in order to "drive it into a stall" (including sanctions) and here ISIS is an ally for the United States, but on the other hand, the fall in oil prices is hitting the US economy ... Ideally, for them it would be - full control over oil production and regulation of prices for it is monopoly! They take it cheaply for themselves, and sell it to others dearly for their own dollars ... But here, other oil producers do not agree with the US policy ...
        In short, a war of all against all, where temporary alliances are possible at certain stages with former opponents (and vice versa) on the principle: against whom are we friends today? Example: Turkey intended to build a gas pipeline with Russia, but ... NATO "partners" played against it, who later turned their backs on it ... The Saudis are now in prostration: what to do, who to be friends with, whom to bet on? ...
        And we, by the way, benefit from high oil prices? Let's say, then why develop your homegrown high-tech production? Why import substitution, given our high cost of labor and energy costs? After all, what is needed - we will buy everything for oil and gas money! Such a pun is obtained and cockroach races! "Someone made Janissary drink beer!" - a phrase from the movie "Running".
        No one has a consistent policy regarding competing partners, because no one even has a clear idea of ​​the future world order ... Everything needs to be radically changed, but no one wants to give up their positions to aspiring applicants ... Everyone wants to be the first !

But what to do — you don’t have to spread your legs — you have to do your own grain fund — in blockaded Leningrad — the hero died, but you saved the grain fund — where do our government look at it? -They don’t see the consequences? -The article seemed to be there spelled correctly on this issue

      Tighten the nuts for them .. so that they forgot how to buy rocket engines from "enemies of mankind".

      And what are you selling them then? Do they launch military satellites on them, or "any whim for your money"?

    "... The time has come for the world community to unite. This can and should be done on the basis of the initiative of the President of the Russian Federation to create a broad anti-terrorist coalition."

    And here is terrorism, all these movements in and around the Middle East are a struggle for oil and gas pricing, this is primary, and it was not started by ISIS at all, ISIS is like that - Iraqi Baathists, who were removed from power

    World mold, fungus on the body of the world. We must continue to work to consolidate all anti-American forces. Blame the world hegemon, or at least undermine its strength. As long as they rule the world, there will be no rest for us. We are enemies for them.

      Vladimirvn! 14.52. So recently there was an article on this topic at VO. Around the US there are only enemies. The USA is surrounded by enemies! I really don’t see America’s enemies pecking at her. As long as their rabid bird lifts up at all. And it would be nice to roll her head. But until you see a bird slaughterer.

    The media has already slipped through that the situation is reminiscent of the pre-war period: the war in Spain, the Nazi exit of Germany to the borders of the Soviet Union, the helpless league of nations. I hope how then they will not surprise us?

    The USA with its "exclusivity" has long gone too far,
    but they understand that for our Strategic Missile Forces, the airborne forces and the navy there are no things inaccessible
    and because of ambition they cannot stop driving themselves into a dead end.

    Well done, the author of the article, although a beginner, on the site! I had a lot of defense ministers ... I started under Ustinov, and I am finishing my brilliant and unique career as a reserve officer under Shoigu! And then the grandchildren begin to doubt, looking at Serdyukov's flabby mug: "He commanded you!" belayAnd, how do they answer that he commanded other officers .., including reserve officers recourse

    On the whole, we positively assess our interaction with the United States in Syria.

    Pure policy.

      Can you imagine how hard it is for Lavrov. I want to go in the face, but I have to smile and shake hands with the "partners"

    Bormental, today you have a personal "minus" for the expression:
    Seeing Russia rising from its knees, the west ...
    -Russia NEVER didn't kneel!

    Perhaps you are an idealist, or a super bet, but you are wrong! Unfortunately, Russia had a period when the people did not know what will happen tomorrow and how tomorrow will not only live, but simply survive. The collapse of the USSR gave impetus to the emergence in power of all levels of urapatriots, under-economists and just thieves (until now, everyone, like bedbugs, has not been brought out of dust by dust). If in Moscow and Leningrad people still somehow interrupted, then in the outback, I'm sorry, there was simply nothing to eat and nothing. Well, then Dr. Bormental laid out to you. If you don’t remember that time, don’t know, please delve into at least the Internet, if you remember, please rethink.

    avg-mgn, January 18.01. But did you personally kneel in the 90s, imploringly asking a can of kiliki in a tomato from a Western bourgeois? The people really had difficulties, and this people thought how to earn money, where to get food, and not how to sell their homeland. I personally don’t remember the population crawling on my knees, difficulties with eating are not a reason for betrayal. For a decent person.

    It’s strange. I served the Motherland - the USSR, then the Russian Federation and I do not need to blame me, because there is nothing. Further - where did you read about betrayal, and to whom do you relate your words? please explain your thought.

    Liked. Repost.
    I am a padded jacket, I am a hereditary scoop. I was born in the USSR during it. I am black bread. I am a tarpaulin boot. I am a military oath sonorous syllable And red victory banners. I was not in the war, but that war I remember with every nerve and swear. I am a padded jacket, I am Soviet, I am. I am the son of a different time and age. In me burns "How the steel was tempered", And on May day a soldier's medal, And the sun of the pioneer Artek. I did not become a communist again, But I was tired of retreating and repenting. I am a quilted jacket, I am a gloomy Colorado. My love for the country is inexplicable. I am Russian. I am a Tatar. I am drilled. I am an evil-looking, but polite soldier. I am to blame for Europe, That I am immensely happy with the return of the Crimea. I remember the Crimean spring, And I am not ashamed of my country. I am a quilted jacket, I am a stubborn patriot. I am a reserve sergeant until the last days. I am a nation divided by three. My heart is beating and tearing to shreds The hot ashes of the Russian Donbass. When Odessa writhed in the fire, She, burning, writhed in me. I am a quilted jacket and cannot be changed. I have neither awards nor titles. Maybe I don't know how to live, But I know how to love my Motherland, And I don't know how to betray and find fault. And even in the darkest delirium I will not go on a par with a fascist. I'm a quilted jacket. Let me not be recognized by All those who destroy our monuments. I'm a holiday! I am a solemn fireworks! I am the honors that are given to the fallen. I'm fluttering in the wind of the guards tape. I am not ashamed to cry on Victory Day. I have not forgotten! I remember! IM proud of!
