Abstract

Two years ago president Dmitry Medvedev and Minister Anatoly Serdyukov stated that military reforms are 'practically' complete. It looks premature now. Serdyukov managed to fulfill only 'quantitative' part of reforms. The 'Serdyukov' reforms will follow the path typical of the majority of Russian reforms. They focus on meeting certain formal measures and characteristics (in the case of military reform, this includes the size of the armed forces, the number of units, the new structure and so on) and, at the same time, avoid making decisions that would require radical changes in the country's political and social life.
