MOSCOW, December 26. /TASS/. Use of political forces and public movements financed and steered from abroad and utilization of non-military means along with military strength, including the population's willingness for protests make up a typical feature of military conflicts nowadays, says the revised version of Russia's military doctrine that was published by the Kremlin on Friday.
The edition of the doctrine issued in 2010 did not contain these provisions.
The new edition has retained the provision saying that today's conflicts expose a complex combat employment of military power and other instruments, but it specifies that the "instruments" embrace the use of "political, economic, informational and other nonmilitary measures implemented along with a broad utilization of the willingness to protest inherent in the population and special operations."
In addition, the updated doctrine also mentions the enmeshing of political forces and public movements in conflicts, the participation of paramilitary units and private military companies in combat operations, and the use of "tentative and asymmetric methods of impact."
Along with it, the doctrine stresses amassed combat employment of high-precision weaponry, drones and robots, wielding of impact on the entire enemy territory, and harassing of enemy activity in the informational sphere and in outer space.
