New Generation Warfare and Civilian Leadership in the Process of Military Reforms. Part 3: The Serdyukov Reforms

The New Generation Warfare (NGW) revolution is not only exclusively about warfare but is about the comprehensive revolution inside the entire military realm and in the supplementary sectors.

The Russian Armed Forces has witnessed a lot in its history, but they have never had a situation when the chief person in the Armed Forces was an accountant. In 2007 Anatoly Serdyukov came into this position not alone, but with the team of financiers and accountants which occupied the Ministry of Defence.
