Shoigu spoke about the changing nature of the modern war
The war in the modern world has acquired new forms, and this was demonstrated by the conflict in Syria. This was stated by the Minister of defence of Russia Sergey Shoigu at the opening of the operatively-mobilization gathering of the leadership of the armed forces, reports “RIA Novosti”.
According to the General, the range of military threats is expanding, and the Armed forces of the Russian Federation should be ready for new threats and challenges.
He noted that the confrontation in Syria is a vivid indicator of how the armed struggle has changed, which today is fundamentally different from the classic wars in which the enemy was the regular army. In wars used precision weapons, intelligence systems and electronic warfare. In addition, Shoigu spoke about the automation of the processes of control of troops and weapons. According to the General, intelligence and information management systems are being integrated.
Thus, all this was the impetus to change the nature of the fighting, in the work of commanders there are new elements. Such conditions require the military, in particular the leaders of all levels, not only to have in-depth knowledge, but also the ability to “see and implement all new and advanced”.
Earlier, “political Russia” wrote that Congress woke up after years of hibernation and voted by a majority vote against ending the war in the middle East. It was about Syria and Afghanistan. American President Donald trump has decided to withdraw American soldiers from these countries, which caused a stormy protest in Congress. Experts believe that the us President will not be allowed to fulfill his campaign promises regarding the withdrawal of military troops from Syria and Afghanistan, where Washington has been present for many years.
