New Book by Mark Galeotti: "The Modern Russian Army 1992-2016"

Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, Russia's army has undergone a turbulent transformation, from the scattered left-overs of the old Soviet military, through a period of shocking decay and demoralization, to the disciplined force and sophisticated 'hybrid war' doctrine that enabled Vladimir Putin to seize Crimea virtually overnight in 2014. Using rare photographs and full colour images of the army in action, profiles of army leaders and defence ministers, as well as orders of battle and details of their equipment and dress, new publication by Mark Galeotti brings vivid account of the army's troubled history and of its current character, capabilities and status.

Dr Mark Galeotti is the IIR Senior Researcher, Co-ordinator of the Centre for European Security of the IIR, as well as an internationally recognized expert on transnational organized crime, security issues and modern Russia.
