Written by Drago Bosnic, independent geopolitical and military analyst
Amid incessant NATO aggression and escalation of hostilities within Russia, now also including US-backed Kiev regime terrorists targeting schoolchildren, Moscow has started revamping the doctrinal approach to the use of its strategic arsenal. Rather curiously, the new document, published by the “Military Thought” magazine run by the Russian Ministry of Defense, attracted little attention in Western media. It should be noted that such changes are made only once in several decades or even longer. The strategic posturing of countries, particularly superpowers, is usually “set in stone”, meaning that changes are prompted only by major events of historical proportions.
It was only a week ago that Russian President Vladimir Putin announced Russia is suspending its participation in the New START arms control treaty. Putin cited continuous, blatant US and NATO violations of the agreement as the primary reason for the decision. With the treaty becoming a mere formality, Russia is not bound to honor it anymore, as this would undermine its own strategic security. With that in mind, the Russian Strategic Missile Forces (RVSN) started implementing new ways to deter any possible direct US/NATO attacks on Russia, particularly as the belligerent thalassocracy has repeatedly floated the idea of “decapitation strikes” on Moscow in the last several months.
The authors of the document are Deputy Commander of the RVSN Igor Fazletdinov and retired Colonel Vladimir Lumpov. They argue that the US is on a collision course with Russia, as Washington DC and its vassals are becoming increasingly aggressive due to their political elites’ frustration with the loss of the “sole superpower” status. With America seeing Moscow as the main culprit for this, it plans on defeating Russia in a “single blow”, thus eliminating the main obstacle to total US global dominance. Fazletdinov and Lumpov argue that Washington DC plans to defeat Russia in a “strategic (global) multi-sphere operation”, the primary goal of which will be the elimination of its strategic arsenal.
“[The US believes] this goal is only achievable in the event of an instantaneous nuclear strike against the RVSN or at least with the deployment of ABM [anti-ballistic missile] systems around Russia. The US plan is to destroy at least 65-70% of Russian strategic nuclear forces as part of its Prompt Global Strike concept, with the rest eliminated by American ABM systems. The US would then launch an all-out nuclear attack on the Russian Federation in order to destroy it,” authors warn, further adding: “We aim to repel a potential [US] nuclear strike, preserve our own nuclear capabilities, suppress the deployed US missile defense systems and cause unacceptable damage in case of [US/NATO] aggression.”
Russia certainly has the capability to almost instantly change its strategic doctrine. Unlike its NATO rivals (including the US itself), Moscow leads the world in several key military technologies, which also include at least a dozen operational hypersonic weapons deployed over the last 5-10 years. And indeed, in early December President Putin stated Russia could adopt a US-style concept of preemptive strikes. The program mentioned by Russian military experts, called PGS (Prompt Global Strike), is a US attempt to develop a capability that enables it to attack enemy strategic targets with precision-guided weapons anywhere in the world within just one hour. Still, the US is yet to deploy a weapon that can achieve that.
On the other hand, with the Mach 12-capable “Kinzhal” air-launched hypersonic missile carried by modified MiG-31K/I interceptors and Tu-22M3 long-range bombers, the Mach 28-capable “Avangard” HGV (hypersonic glide vehicle) deployed on various ICBMs and the Mach 9-capable scramjet-powered “Zircon” hypersonic cruise missile deployed on naval (both submarines and surface ships) and (soon) on land platforms, Russia is the only country on the planet with the capability to immediately implement such a program. And yet, Moscow still refrains from going ahead with such plans, although its justification for this would hold much better than that of the US.
The authors further emphasize “the need to make sure the US was perfectly aware of the impossibility of the complete destruction of our strategic capabilities and the inevitability of a crushing retaliatory nuclear strike”. However, the problem with this is that the establishment in Washington DC has become so detached from reality that they believe the Kiev regime has the capacity to not only “push Russia back from Donbass”, but also “retake Crimea”, despite relevant reports on the Neo-Nazi junta’s staggering losses. It can hardly be expected from them to be aware of Russia’s wholly undeniable capability to obliterate the continental US in minutes.
American policymakers take advice from former high-ranking generals and officers who somehow managed to lose a war against outnumbered and outgunned AK-wielding insurgents in sandals while wasting trillions of dollars and deploying hundreds of thousands of troops during the two decades of continuous NATO aggression in Afghanistan. This is without taking into account the technological disparity which was so overwhelmingly on the side of the aggressors that it can quite literally be measured in centuries rather than decades. Still, delusions and living in parallel reality seem to be a given for the warmongers at the Pentagon.
In addition, considering the fact that Afghanistan became more peaceful and safer after the US and NATO have been soundly defeated and driven out of the country devastated by decades of incessant conflict, this clearly implies that being able to militarily beat the political West is of utmost importance for the safety of any given country. Russia’s new strategic doctrine will certainly ensure this, not just for itself but also for the entire world, as the Eurasian giant will surely remain the only global power with such a capability in the foreseeable future.

As long as anglo scum go extinct thats fine by me
Battle lines are being drawn for the ultimate showdown. What’s in your fallout shelter?
Carpet bombing ends wars NOW but politicians like to play with their food else afghanistan would be flat and lifeless and of no further consequence as of some years ago. But instead of being effective they kept sending more money and people and the govt. they crated promptly ran off with the proceeds and ukraine is the same story with govt. crooks enriching themselves. The beatings will continue…
Sounds like you’re suggesting that the US should have committed genocide in Afghanistan, instead of merely war crimes.
The problem is not that the US did not kill enough people in Afghanistan, the problem is that they are corrupt to the bone and were far more interested in Afghanistan as a cash cow. Why did they let Russia get back on its feet after Yeltsin and his cronies sold them out? Their driving force is greed and when the easy pickings had been garnered they forgot about Russia to pursue other low hanging fruit.
Also note, they carpet bombed North Korea and to date no peace treaty has been signed.
Carpet bombing has in fact never ended a war nor been an effective method of attack at all. Mass delivery of unguided ordinance by a formations of bombers, which is what carpet bombing is, is probably the least efficient method of attack, in terms of effort and expense expended per casualty inflicted, in the history of warfare. Only Western countries with a MIC that likes to waste money would continue to even consider such a low skill exercise. It’s not even effective against infrastructure.
Russia is the Arsenal of freedom against the insane satanic westerners.
Strike America first then Russia. Stop talking about “red lines” and do it.
Russia goes to the UN asking for an investigation on who blew up their pipelines. That’s like going to the person that robbed you and asking them to turn themselves in to the police. It will never happen.
You know it was America that did it. They openly want to end you. End them first. Strike first. Take the United Snakes of Jewmerica out.
Unfortunately, the insane psychopaths in DC may very well prefer nuclear Armageddon to giving up their delusions of full spectrum dominance. They may believe that they can wait out the ensuing nuclear winter none the worse or wear in their luxury bunkers.
The US has lost all its credibility of being honest and decent with its ‘subjects’.
The vast majority of the worlds population, even the US citizens, also despise the US despotic and cruelty toward the greed and avarice of the US morons currently in power.
Russian hypersonic missiles have made US Navy carriers big fat sitting ducks.
SF just censored two comments that I posted. Not at all like the MSM.
I had the same sensor n azi remove a comment of mine that was not contentious. ‘Discuss’ is so woke that it deserves to go broke.
Sorry I made mistake. Comment is there. I appologise to SouthFront organization too. No option to delete or edit comment I made few hours ago. If admins could delete it please do so. SORRY EVERYONE !
Same they did to my comment, in other article when I exposed why serbian guy Damnjan Knezevic leader of People’s patrol was arrested with journalist from Srbin.info ( look at yt for srbin.info ) who organised protest in Belgrade on 15th of February 2023. Serbian president arrested them beause they have been visiting Wagner in Russia. And my comment was related to article which was about serbian government nearly capitulating to do what NATO orders them. Protest in Serbia was to protect Kosovo, serbs saying Vucic going to give Kosovo away. Guys arrested are important to start protests if Vucic gives Kosovo.
More paperwork, declarations and more chatting from a complete new angle never seen before from Kremlin. We are outraged and hurt on our feelings.
Sounds like pot stirring to me. The MIC is revving things up to make more stuff.
Fry the Jewnited Snakes. Incinerate the filth . Starting with Israhell – a huge crater, then wipe out the City of London, followed by the District of Criminals. Free and prosperous world for all to follow.
Tout à fait d’accord !!! Le terrier du serpent se trouve sur les rives du Jourdain ?
There is no israhell !!! Palestine now more than 2000 years. No nukes on Palestine, just exterminate the shousenites.
NATOs steadfast adherence to this failed Ukraine war plan screams that another element is a nuclear one. Moscow must maintain ghost missile and anti-missile sites to insure a high probability of NATO failure and insure the subsequent annihilation of NATO for the sake of protecting the world from these Demonic morons.
Perfeito e amedrontador!
Just like with the atomic bombs on Japan, Russia can use the same reasons to, for example, eliminate the Kiev regime in one fell swoop to avoid having to conquer city by city with many casualties as a result. Let the rest of the world know immediately that Putin is not bluffing. Keep NATO at bay right away because militarily they can’t compete with Russia and Russia can’t compete with NATO given that the battle in Ukraine is still undecided after a year and NATO isn’t fighting with NATO scraps and Soviet junk .
W.J. Burns untimely insistence on a nuclear arms limits suggests NATO thinks it can win a war at the current level but not at a higher level of Russian nukes and that they already have a plan. The battle is not for Kiev.
Use a nuke on a neighbouring country and destroy the lives of millions of Slavs in nearby Nova Russia and Belarus? Why, when the NATO regime in Kiev will flee when the Russian juggernaut breaks out of Donbas. Russia will destroy NATO, already have stripped them of most of their anti tank, artillery and MANPADS, leaving the girls, boys and the other 70 gender types left of the armies of freedumb and demockery to have a group hug and then go home.
There are at least 20 reasons why this is not a good idea
More chatting and cancelling an old treaty in the parliament the world has never seen before.
Kinzhal and zircon should be enough to pluck them 5 eyes out, in case of utter stupidity by the West (almost a norm these days) Avangard and Sarmat are sure to finish them off
my anus prefer NATO mulatto aggression
Russia and China should align to launch multiple missiles at once, at carefully chosen targets that are outside of Ukraine. Do they have sufficient, do they have sufficient air defenses? At the same time, nuclear emergency DRILLS should be held, where everyone gets to a bunker. .
All Western politicians need to be arrested and prosecuted for war crimes they are the ones who promote and engage in mass murder of civilians across the planet
great article the west is insane if they believe they are invincible it must be the hollywood complex on steroids,they can dictate to the world and pull the dragons tail,challenge the bear,go after dprk etc put voodoo newlandski and the bloonking brikade on a rocket with all the other psycopaths bull guts and pus swab in the exhaust of a rocket which circles the globe in infinity
The author is right. The US leadership is in another false reality and think they are still protected by the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. When Mr. Sarmat comes calling, they won’t even have time to say “Oh fuck” https://www.bitchute.com/video/Rtt0RUr0EcJl/
From a Patriotic American, PLEASE President Putin, the ENTIRE Washington DC metropolitan area, with a 50 mile radius. We the People WOULD be forever grateful.
