Russia to review military strategy in response to NATO mulling rapid-reaction force
Russia has indicated that it plans to review its military doctrine, following the imminent plans by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) of endorsing a Rapid- Reaction Spearhead Force in Wales to respond more quickly to the crisis in eastern Ukraine.
Kremlin's decision came at a time when Russian-backed rebels swiftly recaptured territory in eastern Ukraine on Tuesday, which weeks ago appeared to have been lost by them.
The new 4000-strong force would feature a sizeable British contingent that could be sent to troubled spots in a maximum time frame of two days, The Independent reported.
Russia, though, has not been directly named as a threat by the alliance to seek for this drastic measure. The mission's logistics and equipment is expected to be pre-positioned in Eastern European countries closer to Russia, a move which will certainly rile the latter which goes against the 1997 Founding Act.
On Monday, Nato Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen had said that given the multiple threats witnessed, such a force was necessary. He cited how in the east of Europe, where Russia is intervening overtly in Ukraine, the rise of extremism and the fragility of states in the south could affect all in different ways.
