Russia is preparing for new war
In view of the further militarization of Georgia for the funds received from its Western partners, especially the U.S., Russia also need to think about further expansion of military power the Russian army. On the eve of such statements made by Dmitry Medvedev.
In his speech, he called the army rearming "one of the top priorities of state for the next few years." The reason for rearmament became, in the words of the president, "the aggression of Georgia and its continuing militarization."
On passage of rearming the Russian army so Medvedev said: "We will do so consistently, and carefully, and, based on problems that have emerged in recent times".
Findings from the war with Georgia
No doubt the Russian military made certain conclusions from past military conflict. One of the most logical conclusions was the understanding that Russian troops in the Caucasus is no longer confronted with a few separatists, but with well-trained army.

The consequence of this conclusion has been the increased level of loyalty to the government army and the rise of patriotic spirit among not only military but also among civilians.
The fourth conclusion to Russia was the understanding that its troops could be vulnerable to high-tech weapons opponent, Georgia supplied from abroad. We remind that the Russian army has lost more than 60 people dead, the Georgian air defense, according to official data, destroyed 4 military aircraft.
