Abstract: Russia's Defence Policy and Military Presence in the Caucasus and Central Asia
These two reports, Security in the Caucasus. Russian policy and military posture and Security in the Caucasus. Russian policy and military posture, analyse and discuss Russia’s security policy and military posture after 2014 in two regions often described as part of Russia’s ‘near abroad’, the Caucasus and Central Asia. The reports find that although both regions are considered as within Russia’s ‘sphere of influence’, the Russian military structure and policy varies significantly. While geared towards crisis management of potential conflicts in Central Asia, the frozen conflicts in the South Caucasus have made Russia set up for regional war.
