Russia must be ready to counter threat using military force - Rogozin
MOSCOW. March 20 (Interfax-AVN) - Military force is always in demand in the modern world, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said at the Military and Industrial Conference in Moscow on Wednesday.
"We cannot fail to see what is happening in the world. Military force is still in demand, and the threat of using it is a key factor of interaction on the solution of global political and economic issues," Rogozin said.
"Shaking hands with its partners with a steel hand in a child's glove, Russia must show the world its firm resoluteness to defend the world and its place in it," he said.
"The Cold War rudiments, both in their organization, such as NATO, or propaganda, such as Russophobia, forms have not disappeared," Rogozin said.
"Western civilization is a condition of exhausting resources and is not going to give up the level of consumption which they got have been used to for a long time. This means the struggle for the access to these resources will become even more severe," he said.
"Meanwhile, new giants with gigantic ambitions are entering the world arena. The 21st century will not be just a promenade on an avenue," Rogozin said.
