Shlykov, Vitaly V.  The Russian Defense Industrial Complex After 9/11.  European Security 12:37-51 Autumn-Winter 2003.
An ambitious program seeks to reduce the 1700 firms that currently make up the defense-industrial complex by two thirds, and consolidate the remainder. Like all attempts at military reform in Russia, however, this program is probably doomed because of poor planning, unrealistic budgets and a lack of consistent support within the government.

Stone, David R.  The First Five-Year Plan and the Geography of Soviet Defence Industry.  Europe-Asia Studies 57:1047-1063 November 2005.
Soviet and Western scholars alike have generally hailed the successes of Soviet industrialization in building up new industrial centers in the geographically secure heart of the Soviet Union during the pre-war five-year plans. However, newly available archival sources, particularly Soviet defense industry data during the first five-year plan, suggest a more nuanced picture of the geography of Soviet industrial development.

Turbiville, Grahan H. Jr.  Russian Arms-Export Agency Threatens National Security.  Special Warfare 17:60+ September 2004.
The Russian Federation's principal defense-arms sales agency, Rosoboronexport, pursues highly active initiatives to provide foreign clients with a range of modern, if often less than top-of-the-line, weaponry. Critics charge that its ill-considered and profit-driven sales to rogue regimes and groups is undermining Russian security by arming terrorist sponsors.

Books

Aslund, Anders.  Building Capitalism:  The Transformation of the Former Soviet Bloc.  Cambridge, England, Cambridge University Press, 2002.  508 p.
Author suggests that three basic reform models are evident: the radical reformers (Central Europe, the Baltic nations, Georgia, Armenia, and Kyrgystan), which have created democratic, privatized, market-oriented systems; the gradual reformers (Bulgaria, Romania, Russia, Ukraine, and Kazakhstan), which are stalled in semidemocratic, semiprivatized, rent-seeking societies; and the non- reformers (Belarus, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan), which have restored state- controlled economies under dictatorial rule. He finds that both growth and social welfare are highest in the radical reform countries, while the gradual reformers have fared worse even than the non-reformers, exhibiting the slowest growth and highest inequality.

The arrest and continued detention of Mikhail Khodorkovsky, the head of Yukos Oil and Russia's richest oligarch, has implications not only for Russia, but also for the world at large. Author examines why Vladimir Putin made a move to arrest Khodorkovsky, and why the oil business is so crucial to Russia's economic ups and downs.

Huskey, Eugene and Obolonsky, Alexander.  The Struggle to Reform Russia 's Bureaucracy.  Problems of Post-Communism 50:22-31 July-August 2003.
As the era of Boris Yeltsin ended, the priorities of Russian leaders and international institutions began to shift from reshaping economic policy to reconstructing the state. The initial emphasis on privatization, reducing subsidies, and macroeconomic stabilization gave way to a focus on reforming the courts, the military, and the civil service. However, despite these departures, the shrinking economy, and the declining role of the state, the number of personnel in the public sector actually increased.

Jaffe, Amy Myers and Manning, Robert A.  Russia, Energy and the West.  Survival 43:133-152 Summer 2001.
The fate of the Russian economy, the dynamics of the new Russian elite and the outcome of the country's still-uncertain post-communist transition are related in no small measure to Russia's vast oil and gas resources. Energy is a key factor in Putin's diplomacy - whether with Iran and Iraq, former Soviet republics or the EU.

Russian Improvement for Export.  Armada International 24:76-81 June-July 2000.
A decade after the demise of the Soviet regime, the picture offered by Russian manufacturers at major shows has changed considerably. The attitude of personnel and attendants clearly shows that the Russian industry is eager to attract customers other than their "traditional" clients.

Shlykov, Vitaly V.  The Russian Defense Industrial Complex After 9/11.  European Security 12:37-51 Autumn-Winter 2003.
An ambitious program seeks to reduce the 1700 firms that currently make up the defense-industrial complex by two thirds, and consolidate the remainder.

West, J. Robinson.  The Future of Russian Energy.  National Interest 80:125-123 Summer 2005.
Like many Russians, President Putin does not trust private businesses, domestic or international, to be good stewards of Russia's energy patrimony or to serve national interests. He believes the state must play the dominant role in certain strategic industries, particularly oil and gas.

Katz, Mark N.  Exploiting Rivalries:  Putin's Foreign Policy.  Current History 103:337-341 October 2004.
Neither feared as a threat nor valued as a friend, Russia has often found itself simply ignored--much to the chagrin of both the Putin administration and the Russian public. However, Putin has exploited situations in which Moscow, despite its diminished circumstances, can affect the balance between opposing sides, thus providing one side or even both an incentive to court Russia. Katz discusses how successful the Russian leader has been in pursuing this diplomacy, and examines what has Moscow actually gained by attempting to exploit rivalries between other nations.

Discusses the emergence of a Russian version of the Bush doctrine in the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), and Russian officials' conceptual stretching of the strategic culture embodied in the National Security Concept (NSC) and the Military Doctrine (MD) from 2000 onwards. While these documents seem to cherish multilateralism and United Nations (UN) primacy in questions of global and regional security, terrorist attacks on Russia proper have engendered a more assertive approach to regional security issues in the Caucasus and Central Asia, and brought Russian officials to consider unilateral pre-emptive strikes against terrorist bases.

The fate of the Russian economy, the dynamics of the new Russian elite and the outcome of the country's still-uncertain post-communist transition are related in no small measure to Russia's vast oil and gas resources. Energy is a key factor in Putin's diplomacy - whether with Iran and Iraq, former Soviet republics or the EU.

Two hundred and eighty three people died in September 1999 as the result of a series of four apartment block explosions throughout Russia. When Vladimir Putin found a "Chechen trace," the explosions were used as justification for the Russian invasion of Chechnya. Since then critics have pointed to evidence that the blasts were the work of the Federal Security Service (FSB). Yet pending further evidence, the simplest, clearest explanation for the apartment block blasts is that they were perpetrated by Islamist extremists from the North Caucasus.

Maerli, Morten Bremer.  U. S.-Russian Naval Security Upgrades.  Naval War College Review 56:18-38 Autumn 2003.
The US Department of Energy administers more than a dozen nonproliferation programs in Russia designed to reduce the risk of nuclear material expertise falling into dangerous hands. Of these, the joint physical security upgrades at Russian naval facilities have been highly successful--largely because of the flexible and stepwise working approach chosen and the cooperative working spirit and trust developed. Its lessons could contribute to other US-Russian nonproliferation activities.

Yarynich, Valery.  From Negotiations to Cooperation.  European Security 12:67-71 Autumn-Winter 2003.
Russia and the United States face an entirely new kind of nuclear threat, in the form of high-tech terrorism. With modern communications technology, it is conceivable that terrorists could crack either country's command and control system and initiate a launch. Both sides must overcome habits of the past and begin to cooperate on making the C3 systems transparent, safe and reliable, through joint modeling, sharing of intelligence, de-alerting missiles, and sharp reductions in numbers of warheads.

Argues that Russia's war planners and political leaders must make painful adjustments in their thinking about the relationship between military art and policy in the twenty-first century. Russian and Soviet military thinking historically emphasized the blunderbuss and total war: overwhelming mass, firepower, and conflicts of annihilation or prolonged attrition. However, historical experience also forced Russia and the Soviet Union to come to grips with crisis management and with limited aims and means in the conduct of war.

Golts, Alexander.  Military Reform in Russia and the Global War against Terrorism.  Journal of Slavic Military Studies 17:29-41 March 2004.
Reform of the Russian military is required for two reasons: the armed forces' lack of modern equipment, and its growing internal social problems. Fixing these problems will require adjustments at several levels: in funding, in military education, in eliminating corruption and arbitrariness, and in overcoming "old thinking" associated with a Cold-War mentality. Recent statements by the Russian Minister of Defense stating that "military reform is over" cannot help but make one pessimistic about the future of military reform in Russia.

Golts, Alexander.  The Russian Volunteer Military:  A New Attempt?  European Security 12:53-65 Autumn-Winter 2003.
Although President Putin has expressed his disappointment with the lack of progress toward modernizing Russia's armed forces, institutional biases, corruption, and infighting have so far prevented any real changes from being made. Conscription rates have plummeted, and the army has resorted to filling its ranks with shirkers and criminals. Putin panicked top brass when he took the unprecedented step of allowing experts from outside the military to submit proposals for making the transformation to a professional army. 

Golts, Alexander M. and Putnam, Tonya L.  State Militarism and Its Legacies.  International Security 29:121-158 Fall 2004.
Russian military officials have almost uniformly resisted efforts to bring about fundamental structural and operational changes. Most Russian analysts point to four explanations: lack of consensus among military and political elites regarding the substance of reform, fear among political elites of military intervention in internal political power struggles, a shortage of financial resources and the ongoing conflict in Chechnya.

Herspring, Dale R.  Dedovshchina in the Russian Army:  The Problem that Won't Go Away.  Journal of Slavic Military Studies 18:607-629 December 2005.
Of the many problems facing the Russian political and military leadership as it attempts to rebuild and reform the Russian armed forces, none is of greater concern than dedovshchina, or the harassment of junior recruits by more senior ones. It has undermined combat readiness, unit cohesion and led to an increase in suicides and desertions by recruits who cannot stand the humiliation, beatings, rapes and even murders they face on a daily basis.

Herspring, Dale R.  Vladimir Putin and Military Reform in Russia.  European Security 14:137-155 March 2005.
Vladimir Putin has begun to take the first real steps toward reforming the Russian military. The reform plan is in place, funding has increased, some weapons modernization has begun, and most importantly, Putin has placed the Chief of the General Staff back under the Defense Minister and rewritten the General Staff's mission statement to move operational matters to the Defense Ministry. The key question is whether Putin will have enough time to make his reforms irreversible.

How Are the Mighty Fallen.  Economist 376 :45-46 July 2, 2005.
Reports on the Russian conscription system. Russia's top brass has long talked of shifting the balance between conscripts and contract troops in the 1.2m-strong armed forces. In 2008 the conscription term is due to be cut from two years to one; by the end of 2008, 70% of all troops are meant to be volunteers. But dropping conscription altogether is still not in prospect.

Seeking to fill a niche relevant to Russia's immediate security concerns, in the late 1990s the heavy bomber force began to supplant its traditional intercontinental nuclear strike mission with a new emphasis on precision conventional strike. However, the September 2003 crash of a Tu-160 bomber showed that the heavy bomber force still faces considerable challenges.

The US Department of Energy administers more than a dozen nonproliferation programs in Russia designed to reduce the risk of nuclear material expertise falling into dangerous hands. Of these, the joint physical security upgrades at Russian naval facilities have been highly successful--largely because of the flexible and stepwise working approach chosen and the cooperative working spirit and trust developed. Its lessons could contribute to other US-Russian nonproliferation activities.

The violent demise on March 8 of Aslan Maskhadov, former president of Chechnya and supreme commander of the Chechen militant forces, is President Vladimir Putin’s short-term gain, but it may be Russia’s long-term loss. Now the war in Chechnya will further lose its “national liberation” character and the pretense of Chechen independence, which Maskhadov symbolized, and Moscow will confront the deadly face of Islamic extremist terrorism.

Antonenko, Oksana.  Putin's Gamble.  Survival 43:49-59 Winter 2001.
For the first time since World War II, Russia, the U.S. and Europe are working together to address what all of them view as vital security interests. Russia is important not only for the war against Taliban and al-Qaeda, but also for longer-term goals such as targeting terrorist money flows, identifying and eliminating al-Qaeda cells, addressing the proliferation of WMD  materials and technologies, and finding effective responses to bio-terrorist threats.

Antonenko, Oksana.  Russia, NATO and European Security after Kosovo.  Survival 41:124-144 Winter 1999-2000.
NATO's air campaign against Yugoslavia precipitated the most dangerous turn in Russian-Western relations since the 1980s. Repairing relations will require political realism in Russia, the absence of a major new crisis in Kosovo, and restraint from NATO.

When Vladimir Putin found a "Chechen trace," the explosions were used as justification for the Russian invasion of Chechnya. Since then critics have pointed to evidence that the blasts were the work of the Federal Security Service (FSB). Yet pending further evidence, the simplest, clearest explanation for the apartment block blasts is that they were perpetrated by Islamist extremists from the North Caucasus.

While these documents seem to cherish multilateralism and United Nations (UN) primacy in questions of global and regional security, terrorist attacks on Russia proper have engendered a more assertive approach to regional security issues in the Caucasus and Central Asia, and brought Russian officials to consider unilateral pre-emptive strikes against terrorist bases.

Argues that Russia's war planners and political leaders must make painful adjustments in their thinking about the relationship between military art and policy in the twenty-first century. Russian and Soviet military thinking historically emphasized the blunderbuss and total war: overwhelming mass, firepower, and conflicts of annihilation or prolonged attrition. However, historical experience also forced Russia and the Soviet Union to come to grips with crisis management and with limited aims and means in the conduct of war.

Compounding this problem was Yeltsin's ineffectiveness as Gorbachev's successor. The Russian populace yearns for strong leadership to overcome the negative consequences evident during the nineties but, at the same time, it cries out for democracy.

This re-assertion of state power depresses economic growth and puts Moscow at odds with the wider world.

As the era of Boris Yeltsin ended, the priorities of Russian leaders and international institutions began to shift from reshaping economic policy to reconstructing the state. The initial emphasis on privatization, reducing subsidies, and macroeconomic stabilization gave way to a focus on reforming the courts, the military, and the civil service. However, despite these departures, the shrinking economy, and the declining role of the state, the number of personnel in the public sector actually increased.

President Putin started his second term in Russia with overwhelming popularity and power. However, since that time he has been confronted with mounting domestic and international problems. The most serious issue is how to deal with increasing terrorist attacks. Putin's centralizing of state power in the Kremlin has been criticized as an attempt to strengthen his grip on power, thereby endangering democracy in Russia.

Leszek, Buszynski.  Russia and the CIS in 2003.  Asian Survey 44:158-159 January-February 2004.
Russia's position in Asia has been consolidating according to two developments. The first was the restructuring of Russia's presence in the former Soviet Union. Various new groupings have arisen that offer Russia alternatives to the Commonwealth of Independent States. The second was the expansion of Russia's role in the Asia Pacific region and the Korean peninsula, as energy supplier to China and Japan, and as an arms seller.

In the two years since Vladimir Putin first assumed real political power the inner circles of the Kremlin have become less accessible to westerners, and despite growing exposure to international summitry, Putin has yet to develop his own world view. Some of the alarming theories put forward by his advisors concerning Russia's relationship with the wider world are discussed.

The terrorist attacks carried out by Basayev between August 25 and September 1, 2004 terrified the nation, and delivered a heavy blow to Putin's image and authority. The event even cast doubt on the survival of Russia. Although Basayev cannot directly affect whether Putin stays in office, he does have the power to do what the Russian people cannot: force Putin to start a real struggle against corruption.

Mainly hostile to communism, the Cossacks suffered widespread repression during Soviet times, but began a successful revival under Boris Yeltsin. Since 1991, twelve Cossack academies have opened across the country, and Cossack units have been created in the Russian army.

Eaton, Jana Sackman.  The Russian Federation Islamic Republic of Dagestan:  Curricular Decentralization, Social Cohesion, and Stability.  Peabody Journal of Education vol. 80, no. 1:56-80 2005.
Educational decentralization, coupled with new directives from Moscow, could threaten the fragile stability of Dagestan, a republic that is highly pluralistic, severely impoverished, and challenged by extremist trends in Islam. Moscow should pay careful attention to educational trends in Dagestan and other predominantly Islamic republics to avoid the locus of political identity becoming oriented more toward the Middle East and away from Moscow, thus posing a potential threat to national sociopolitical stability and cohesion.

Savelyev, Alexander G.  Prospects for US-Russian Cooperation in Ballistic Missile Defense and Outer Space. Activities.  Journal of Slavic Military Studies 17:99-109 March 2004.
Space presents realistic opportunities for US-Russian cooperation. But how can the two countries cooperate while also protecting their own national interests? Can the US afford to go it alone in space? What will be the long-term effect of the commercialization of space? Faced with ever declining space-technology budgets, Russia needs international cooperation if its space industry is to survive.

Taverna, Michael A. and and others.  Fallback Position.  Aviation Week & Space Technology 163:32-33 October 10, 2005.
European space leaders think relying on a single space transportation system for a future international exploration initiative is a bad idea, and are considering support for a Russian concept that could serve as an alternative, if need be. Their ruminations are part of a new strategic thrust designed to ensure that Europe retains decision-making autonomy in the new initiative, and avoids being held hostage to US political and budget decisions, as has been the case on the International Space Station.
