Former Danish Foreign Minister Uffe Ellemann-Jensen said that Russia under President Vladimir Putin has regained its status as a military superpower.
As Berlingske writes, the refreshed and well-trained ground forces, which have demonstrated their effectiveness in Syria, speak of this.
The former minister also praised the equipment of the air force. He stressed that Russia remains a superpower thanks to its nuclear arsenal.
Along with this, Ellemann-Jensen found easy places in the Russian military-industrial complex – for example, naval forces, which are not suitable for major operations in the world’s oceans. However, all this is offset by power in other areas.
