Influence of army on foreign policy of the Kremlin grows, - experts


Experts of the western investigation and the Russian sources of Reuters familiar with political plans of the Kremlin say that the West has to remain on the alert.

"Is easy to laugh at failures of GRU and their abilities, but we should not underestimate them", - Reuters cites words of the British minister of safety Ben Wallace.

Experts say that the Russian military intelligence stirred up the activity.

"Russia works by rules of wartime that means that the GRU is removed from a lead", - Mark Galeotti, the employee of the European University Institute in Florence considers.

of Activization of army is promoted by strengthening confrontation between the East and the West, he says, noting, from time to time the GRU itself chooses how in the best way to execute orders.

the West accuse Russia of attempt at the former employee of GRU Sergey Skripal and his daughter, cyber attacks to OPCW, the anti-doping agency and other organizations and also of intervention in elections in the different countries. If till 2014 Moscow was generally limited to the territory of the former USSR, then now Russia became more active in the Middle East and in Africa while the USA and the European countries accused Moscow of intervention in their affairs, Reuters notes.
