Russian Armed Forces: Military Modernization and Reforms [July 20, 2020]   [open pdf - 465KB]

From the Document: "Since Russia's invasion of Georgia in 2008, Russia has undertaken extensive efforts to modernize and upgrade its armed forces. In the years ahead, these efforts are expected to continue focusing on modernizing military equipment, as well as improving combat readiness and coordination across service branches. Command and control, electronic warfare, recruitment of professional soldiers, force structure changes, and logistics also are likely to be priorities for development. Some Members of Congress have expressed interest in understanding the extent of Russia's military modernization and reform efforts as they assess the nature of Russian threats to the United States and its allies and partners in Europe and other regions."
