Course description

In 2019, the Russian military has sought to maintain its sphere of influence in regions where it already maintains a presence, such as Ukraine and Moldova, and also expand its footprint to new territories, as most recently indicated through its new partnership with Turkey in northern Syria. The military's influence on civilian life in Russia should not go unnoticed as well, as evidenced through the ever-expanding grandeur of Russia's military parades. In this course, we will take a look at the current state of the Russian military in an ever-changing, complex world and what this may mean for the world moving forward. The Russian vocabulary for this course is heavy on security and military terms, such as караул - guard duty, кровопролитие - bloodshed, and перемирие - ceasefire.
