Mistral Wasn't Irreplaceable
The recent sinking of the Mistral deal, in which France was to have supplied Russia with high-tech assault craft for 1.2 billion euros ($1.66 billion), was heralded as a political victory for the West.

Russian Military Complex: Results of 2013 and Expectations for 2014
Russia has been the runner-up on the global arms market for three years now. Moreover, it has maintained this position despite growing competition.

Many more countries will soon join the ranks of exporters, such as Singapore.

Evolution of the Terror Threat Facing Russia
On October 21, 2013 a female suicide bomber blew up a bus full of passengers in Volgograd. Six passengers died at the scene; another woman died later in hospital; 37 people were injured. The bomber herself was also killed. She hailed from Makhachkala, in the troubled southern province of Dagestan, and belonged to a Jihadist group called The Caucasus Emirate (Imarat Kavkaz). The group consists of militant Islamists in the Russian North Caucasus and their sympathizers in the rest of the country.
