Russia Set to Create National Defense Center
The Russian military has started work on the creation of the National Defense Center, which will enhance the operational management of the armed forces and ensure prompt response to strategic threats, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said.
“We have begun the creation of such a center. It is a lot of work. We have already outlined the main criteria for the center,” Shoigu said.
According to the minister, the center will consolidate command over the country’s armed forces, especially the nuclear triad and rapid reaction forces. It will also allow real-time monitoring of day-to-day activities of military units around the country.
