Russia should come up with integral theory of fighting in new-type armed conflicts – Chief of General Staff

Russian military scientists should come up with an integral theory of fighting in new-type armed conflicts, said the Chief of the Russian General Staff, Valery Gerasimov, when addressing an annual General meeting of the Academy of military sciences.

According to him, a trend has emerged recently towards the blurring of distinction between the state of war and the state of peace.

Wars are no longer declared, while those that have broken out are following an unusual scenario.

The Chief of the General Staff cited colour revolutions as showing that even a relatively secure state may fall victim to a foreign invasion and plunge into chaos.
