Given the recent “reset” policy put in place by the Obama administration with regards to Russia policy, a closer look into the Kremlin’s arm sales practices might prove critical for anyone attempting to decipher Moscow’s foreign policy ambitions.  In Shrinking Ground: Russia’s Decline in Global Arms Sales from The Jamestown Foundation, Dr. Stephen Blank examines these alarming strategic patterns of the Russian arms industry in various key markets around the world, including Latin America, India, China, and the Middle East.  With this report, JTF examines how Russia attempts to mask its slow decline in arms sales through its super power pretentions and rhetoric.
