Over the past two decades, the Russian Navy has transformed itself into a modern force capable of conducting operations beyond its territorial waters and flying the Russian flag in any part of the world. Its increasing capabilities include new vessels and weapons, as well as new concepts of operations. How do these new platforms affect Russian capabilities, and what role does the Navy play in Russia’s larger strategic calculus? Please join us as CNA’s Jeffrey Edmonds and Michael Kofman discuss the future of Russia’s Navy and naval strategy. Jeff Mankoff of CSIS will moderate.
This event is made possible by the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
