General Staff Chief Valery Gerasimov: Shaping Russia's Armed Forces and Military Thought
The following discussion of Gerasimovs tenure is divided into four parts. First, Gerasimovs background is constructed, which indicates his extensive command responsibilities and experience. Second, Gerasimov has issues with the West. Many, it turns out, are self-generated issues caused by the Russian proclivity to avoid responsibility. Third, a summary is provided of some of Gerasimovs more important interviews or presentations at localities other than the AMS. Finally, there is a summary of important points from the seven presentations he has made at AMS from 2013-2019, each of which has made a difference in how Russias military operations are viewed abroad.
