Following that answer you will see a short presentation about why Russian had to make efforts to create a new, modernized and cohesive army for the Russian Federation.
It is more than quite unfortunate that in this day and age military spending must be greatly increased because of a group of rogue nations who neither care about international politics, nor the well-being of their citizens. Some of these countries, most notably the United States of America, which is on the verge of a financial, economical and monetary collapse which – according to many analysts – happen before 2021. It would be essential for ensuring that the US will not implode on itself to communicate and work out solutions with its international partners, Russia, China, India, Brazil and South Africa.
At this time, unfortunately, Russia and its close partners are being forced to rearm and prepare themselves against this common and very real hostile threat which is directly aiming to take these countries’ sovereignty by any means necessary, including, but not limited to: regime changes, domestic uprisings, the funding of foreign and domestic terrorism and the financial support which they provide to groups connected to misbehaving governments, like the neo-nazis in Ukraine and the created and state-funded ISIS group with all of its mercenaries and Toyota trucks which were assembled and readied up in Texas.
