georges asks: Hello. I see many newspapers sayed the Russian army almost fall down or finished by problems like alcohol or drugs or may be because many people doesn't loging to the Russian army? This is myth or truth?Thank you.
In general the real power of present day Russian army is low because of numerous reasons:
- old Soviet times military equipment
- low level of military training of the soldiers and general discipline in the army
- the system of recruitment is from the Soviet past (compulsory military service)
- modern strategies like network-centric warfare are not accepted widely
- high level of corruption
- and a lot of other reasons I can't remember just now
The only scare thing remaining is high number of ICBMs with nuclear warheads.
