war has been over the past year, but its impact is still fermenting. According to RIA Novosti, August 10, on leave of Russian President Dmitry Medvedev invited the leaders of the parliamentary group to meet in Sochi, during which revealed an important message: he had submitted for the current State Duma, “National Defense Law “The draft amendment. Russia’s new law greatly expanded the subject matter of foreign military forces will be similar to last August, sent troops into South Ossetia, the legal aspects of behavior. Analysis, this clear to Russia to defend its interests in the CIS region’s firm determination to mark the Russian military strategy of active defense from the defensive to the direction of change.
troops by the subject from three to seven
2008 years of war in Russia is considered to stimulate the cells introduced outside Russia with the art of war direct incentives. Medvedev himself, explaining his initiative to modify the “National Defense Act”, said the reason he did not want a repeat of similar incidents, the troops must establish clear rules. At that time, Medvedev ordered the Russian military operations in the command, did not obtain approval of the Federal Council, its legitimacy has been questioned. According to Russia’s current law, the president ordered the troops overseas, after the prior consent of the Federation Council.
in Medvedev’s foreign “spreading rumors” at the same time, the Kremlin press bureau announced on its Web site introduction to the amendment. By comparison we can see that the new bill significantly reduces the threshold of Russian troops overseas. Enacted in 1996, the current “National Defense Law” stipulates that troops overseas is limited to three situations: counter acts of aggression; defend the inviolability of territorial integrity and sovereignty; implementation of international obligations (such as peacekeeping). The new bill includes additional troops subject: Russia’s armed forces deployed outside an attack; back or stop acts of aggression against other countries; to protect Russian citizens abroad; to combat piracy and protect their safe navigation of ships.
Russia’s “Kommersant” noted that under the amendment of the terms, Russia can send troops anywhere in the world. In theory, Venezuela and Colombia, across the Atlantic the event of armed conflict, Russian troops may also be involved. In addition, the “protection of citizens outside the Russian Federation,” also appears a general, you know, all over the world of Russian tourists are Russian citizens.
analysts pointed out that the ruling party has an absolute advantage in both houses of parliament, passed a new bill should be no suspense.
primarily for defending the “backyard”
troops overseas despite the use of the new scope is broad, but with the Russian military’s current strength, apparently unable to reach the United States Army “global reach, global operations,” the standard. Analysis, the new law is highly targeted, more is to defend Russia’s strategic interests in the CIS region.
present, the Russian foreign troops concentrated in the CIS region, Ukraine, Armenia, Central Asia, along the Dnieper and the North Caucasus has a large number of military bases. Among them, the number of foreign troops is indeed facing a “real threat.” For example, Ukraine has more than once in Sevastopol for the Russian Black Sea Fleet under the “expulsion order” and threatened to take back the relevant military facilities. In Abkhazia and South Ossetia’s forces in the forefront of the conflict, claiming sovereignty over these areas is rearming Georgia, did not give up “force to regain lost ground,” the idea.
In addition, the Russian Federation citizens outside the main settlement in the CIS region. For example, many citizens of Ukraine and Georgia hold Russian passports. Russia believes that the authorities in these two countries Russia and pro-American off the more serious the moment, the safety of Russian citizens in particular, need protection.
Russia “Yabloko” party primary 席米特罗辛 believes that with the introduction of the new art of war abroad, more a warning and prevention, “This is South Ossetia, Abkhazia and Georgia about, to remind Georgia or NATO: if something happens, we will take steps. “
with new military strategy defensive in the attack
upcoming Russia outside with the art of war news, sure enough caused some neighbors uneasy. According to reports, the Georgian Foreign Ministry spokesman 扎拉布卡契 卡奇什维利 issued a protest, said that the amendment to the Foreign Ministry grid is trying to “military intervention in August 2008 the situation in South Ossetia” behavior “legalized “,” Russian leadership tried to find a way to let the international community believe their rhetoric. “
recent years, the Russian military the world stage in a series of extraordinary measures remarkable. Confrontation with the NATO fleet from the Black Sea, sent bombers to drill the U.S. “backyard”, to the recent East Coast of the U.S. nuclear submarine quietly coming out, it should be said, Russia strengthened its global military presence on the West’s strategic efforts to counter the growing . Russia’s “Independent” that Russia has completely changed the format war, the Russian geo-political environment, it begins to turn to active defense, which keep the belt attack. “Art of War on the outside with the amendment once again proved, August 8, 2008 (the outbreak of war on the Russian grid), we have been living in another country.” (Newspaper freelance writer Ren)
