Colonel-General Vladimir Potapov shares his impressions of the book by Academician Andrei Kokoshin, the dean of the Faculty of World Politics of the M. Lomonosov Moscow State University «Politico-Military and Military-Strategic Challenges to Russian National Security and International Security» (Moscow: HSE Publishing House, 2013). Much attention in this work Kokoshin paid to the relationship between politics and military strategy. Of particular note is the importance of his thesis about the need to take full account of feedback between politics and military strategy that in the political decision-making on the use of military force, one must consider purely military factors, opinions, estimates of military professionals. In practice, this is not always the case in our country. Politics plays certainly a dominant role in this relationship. It can interfere in military operations in almost all phases of the military strategy. But this, as noted by Kokoshin, must be well thought-out, good policies. In his new book, Kokoshin presents his vision of contemporary strategic stability, its various politico-military, operational and strategic, scientific and technical aspects.
