Putin calls for drastic upgrade of the country's aging army within 3 years
Russian President Vladimir Putin told the country's top brass on Wednesday to drastically upgrade the armed forces in the next few years as part of response to attempts by the United States and NATO to "tip the strategic balance" in the world.

In his address to Russia's defense ministry and top military officials, Putin said Russia is witnessing "insistent attempts" to change that balance and complained about U.S. plans to create a new missile defense system in Europe and the potential expansion of NATO to former Soviet republics.

"Geopolitical developments call for our response to be well-calculated and quick," Putin said, according to a transcript of his speech on the Kremlin's website. "The Russian armed forces must move to a dramatically new level of capabilities as soon as in the next three to five years."

The stated goal of the multibillion-dollar missile defense system planned for Europe is to protect the U.S. from Iranian missiles. But Russia has repeatedly criticized the plan, claiming it really is intended to counter its own missiles.

Putin blasted the legacy of former Russian Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov who was dismissed in November 2012 amid a corruption scandal involving billions of rubles reportedly embezzled by the ministry and affiliated firms.

While Putin linked the ouster to the corruption probe, most experts believe that Serdyukov was sacked because of an intensifying behind-the-scenes battle for the distribution of 23 trillion rubles ($750 billion) that the Kremlin plans to spend on buying new weapons through 2020.



this reminds me of the build up before ww2

Is it really necessary to say "Russia's" Putin?

Putin got played by Obama's people; Obama lied to him for four years and used the excuse he had too much pressure of elections too change various foreign policies.

Now Putin's people are left holding a sack of empty words.

+1 USA
-1 Russia

Putin has made this statement before.

By European standards the Russians have a pretty formidable military, but their good troops and equipment are quite limited. I think in continental warfare Germany might give Russia a run for it's money.

i dont think you understand the significance of this, russia is building up its military just as iran is facing a ton of international pressure, china and japan are arguing over the control of a group islands which have a ton of oil under it, syrian rebels are receiving weapons, training and cash from the US which means russia will lose an ally in the region. many countries are building up their forces. the list would be too long for me to list them all.
