Presentation of a book The Equation of Security by Dr.Alexei Arbatov, member of YABLOKOs Political Committee, head of the International Security Centre with the Russian Academy of Sciences, took place in YABLOKOs Moscow office today. YABLOKOs leader Dr.Sergei Mitrokhin and member of Political Committee and the founder of the party Dr.Grigory Yavlinsky participated in the presentation.

The book offers an assessment of the international security system and the place of the Russian Federation in the present changeable concept of international relations. Some of the key postulates of the book lie in the decision of YABLOKOs Political Committee On Russias Foreign Policies.

Progressing degradation of the general purpose forces, overestimated role of the nuclear weapons, low rates of modernisation of strategic forces, collapse of the military-industrial complex, Russias lagging in modern military technologies and snowballing reclamations on the Russian weapons these are only some of problems addressed in the book.

According to Alexei Arbatov, only the European vector of development can ensure Russias perspective.
