Russia has incredibly powerful armed forces, and it is necessary to understand how Moscow has managed to transform them over the past two decades. This was stated by the Deputy Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (KNSH)during his speech at the non-governmental Atlantic Council US Armed Forces General John Hyten.
“I think it is also important to understand that this surprise did not happen overnight,” the general said.
He called the cold War “the most significant confrontation between two great powers”, as these were “the first two great powers” that possessed a huge arsenal.
Today, Russia, as Hyten stated, is a growing threat to the United States due to the fact that, unlike the American ones, the Russian nuclear forces have been completely modernized.
